Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Thursday unveiled a mobile app for direct benefit transfers (DBT) to help beneficiaries check if their bank account is seeded with Aadhaar, and keep track of money they get from the government under various schemes.

The app, which is available on the Android platform, will help the government push for more Aadhaar-based Payment System (ABPS) transactions.

'The intention of the government to bring in transparency will be fulfilled only when citizens use this application. Hence, the citizens must make the best use of this application and keep themselves informed about the transfer of benefits,' Yediyurappa said in a statement.
