Chidambaram would review the arrangements at a meeting of officials to be held here on Monday, Joint Secretary to the Puducherry Government G.Ragesh Chandra told reporters here today.

He said the 15 schemes, to be implemented by various departments, had been brought under the Aadhar linked bank accounts from January 1 last.

The schemes included post-matric scholarship for Scheduled Caste students and Other Backward Classes, national-means-cum merit scholarship implemented by the Directorate of Education, incentive for the girl students for secondary education and benefits under permanent disability assistance.

Under the scheme, money for subsidy and other welfare schemes would be transferred to the Aadhaar-linked bank accounts of beneficiaries.
