Pilot - progress No. of GPs covered : 199 No. of benfs, enrolled: 1.37 Lakhs No. of cards issued: 1.12 Lakhs Amount paid: Rs. 53.34Cr Pilot continued for 1 year for stabilization
Upscaling ( service area model) Phase -I Upscaled to 6 districts in Aug. 2007. Service area approach adopted. 20 banks out of 27 agreed to implement, but only 10 banks started work.

Progress at a glance - Phase-I Villages where enrolment started: 3636 Beneficiaries enrolled : 23.19 Lakhs Beneficiaries issued cards : 20.79 Lakhs Amount disbursed to the beneficiaries:Rs.273.17 Crs.
Limitations in service area approach Project is being implemented in isolated pockets because a bank branch has few villages in its SA. Service areas of a bank are small and widely dispersed. MPDO had to deal with several banks. Operations became cumbersome. This model could not saturate sizable area and failed to enthuse the stakeholders.
Upscaling (One bank – one dist. Model) – Phase -II Govt. of AP explored new models. Based on such recommendations of a technical committee recommendations, RBI approved One Bank – One District model Banks started showing considerable interest in this model.

Important developments RBI announced an incentive policy of Rs.50/- for each account opened ( effective from 01.07.2008 ) 6 banks accessed Rs 1.81cr sofar GOI established Financial Inclusion Fund (FIF) and Financial Inclusion Technology fund (FITF) with 500 crores. APGVB is the first bank to access Rs.20.00 crores from FIF. RBI set up a state level steering committee with CS as chairman
Critical learning from the project 1. Detailed implementation arrangements: At state level, district & Sub-district level Should involve Govt., Banks & Service providers Involvement of Regional Office of RBI A dedicated team at every level is critical * Bank & Service Provider position a point person at district level 2. Enrolment: Better to start block by block, saturate and move on Arrangements for prior intimation identification of beneficiaries After completion of main phase. Separate arrangements for handling left over enrolments. For Coordination
Critical learning from the project 3. Issue of Cards: Delay in opening accounts Delay in activation of cards Delay in handing over cards to beneficiaries * Activated cards ready for operation should be delivered in 2-3 weeks after enrolment 4. CSPs : Identification, Training and Positioning - delays Regular over sight Periodical training, inspection * Possible problems of politicization Contd..
Critical learning from the project 5. Payments: On-line MIS and 100% biometric based electronic payments are very critical Advisable to keep a pass book with beneficiary 6. Change management: Orientation to Govt. Officials, Banks staff and Public representatives – On concept and procedure – Helps raising awareness, removing apprehension and problem solving – Training Branch managers and Bank Staff is critical Contd..
Critical learning from the project 7. Long – Term issues De- duplication of data Laying uniform technology standards Inter –operability across varies service providers Delivering Banking services Contd..
