The Directorate of Women and Child Development has clarified that the news item published on certain local dailies on Disbursement of benefits for the beneficiaries of Ladli Laxmi Scheme’ is completely fake, smacks of ulterior motive to misguide the people of the State of Goa and to tarnish the image of the State Government.
The Department of WCD has informed that on deposit of an amount of Rs. 37 crores and 49 lakh in the Nodal Banks (HDFC, State Bank of India) department has sanctioned 3749 applications of Ladli Laxmi Scheme in the month of June, 2021.
Those beneficiaries who have collected the original documents and produced it in the bank from July 5, 2021 onwards have already been in receipt of the amount in their account under the scheme
For the smooth disbursement under the scheme and to avoid large numbers of gathering, the department has started issuing token numbers on a daily basis and accordingly the beneficiaries are called on a specified date to initiate the disbursement process. On the day of disbursement the original documents of Laadli Laxmi Scheme are handed over to the beneficiary which has to be presented in the beneficiary bank. The amount will be credited in the beneficiary bank account, once the original documents are deposited in the concerned bank of the beneficiary.
