Technology like Aadhaar cards and Global Positioning System (GPS) would also ensure that the government's welfare schemes like old-age pension and antodaya yojna reach bonafide beneficiaries, Munda said.
The Chief Minister was addressing a gathering after inaugurating a fair here during his tour to review development works in Seraikela-Kharswan district.
Stating that everyone in the state would get the Aadhaar card soon, he said the bio-metric system would be linked with Aadhar card for proper distribution of benefits under the government's welfare schemes.
Munda said the vehicles engaged in implementing welfare schemes would be equipped with GPS to help officials monitors implementation of the schemes.
