The Full Form of DBT Payment is a Direct Benefit Transfer Payment. DBT Payment is a government initiative that went into effect on January 1, 2013. It was introduced in order to alter the mechanism for transferring benefits and subsidies. The program’s goal was to make it easier to transfer cast benefits directly into the bank accounts of the intended beneficiaries of government schemes.

DBT Payment reduces corruption and increases the efficiency of government payments. The Planning Commission established the DBT Mission to serve as the focal point for carrying out the DBT programs.

  • In July 2013, the Mission was moved to the Department of Expenditure.
  • DBT’s first phase was launched in 43 districts, and 78 more districts were later included in 27 schemes for the welfare of women, children, and the working class.
