The Minister for Rural Development, G Chinna Reddy on Tuesday announced that disbursement of the social security pensions and wages to the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme labour would be made through the smart card in six districts from April 1.

In response to a question from S Udayabhanu of Congress, he said that the government proposed to take up the scheme in a phased manner. It would be made operational in 7,822 villages in Warangal, Karimnagar, Medak, Mahabubnagar, Chittoor and East Godavari districts.
