The registry will create a single source of verified details for welfare schemes.
To create a single source of authenticated family details for all welfare programmes, the Odisha government has proposed to come up with a Social Registry.
A stakeholders’ consultation to finalise this social protection delivery platform is scheduled be held here on November 5.
The concept paper says the State should have data across schemes including correct and authenticated family details, single source of truth for all departments, metadata model, data standardization and normalization.
“The State requires dynamic database where a citizen can update their demographic attributes once and that will be auto populated across scheme database. The State can do better beneficiary identification by accessing the socio-economic data of citizen to strategise new scheme and target beneficiary,” the concept paper says.
The registry is expected to identify correct target beneficiary and weed out ghost and ineligible beneficiaries.
The move assumes significance as recently 3.41 lakh fake beneficiaries were provided Rs. 170 crore under the State’s flagship ‘KALIA’ scheme for farmers.
