Assam government has asked all migrant workers from Bihar, who are stranded in the state, to apply for transfer of money being provided by the Bihar government as per norms.

The government of Bihar has decided to transfer funds from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund at the rate of Rs 1,000 per family to the bank account of the labourers and needy persons, who are stranded in other states including Assam due to lockdown.

The link has been provided on www.aapda.bih.nic.in through which the beneficiaries will be able to register themselves.

This scheme is only for those, who are residents of Bihar and are stranded in other states due to the lockdown announced due to COVID19.

The documents required for registration are copy of Aadhar card of the beneficiary and bank account in the name of the beneficiary, which is in the branch of a bank located in the state of Bihar.

A district administration source said some of the other important points to avail the benefit are:

The photo (selfie) of the beneficiary would have to be matched with the photo in the Aadhaar database; so the photo should be clear.

There would be only one registration linked to one Aadhaar number; the OTP received on the mobile number has to be used on the mobile app.

The assistance related to this will be sent to the bank account only.
