What is the News?
Wayanad from Kerala became the first district in the country to provide basic documents and facilities to all tribes people under the (Akshaya Big Campaign for Document Digitisation) ABCD campaign.
What is the ABCD campaign?
Under the ABCD campaign, Wayanad district administration has provided basic documents and facilities such as an Aadhaar card, ration card, birth/death certificates, election ID card, bank account and health insurance to all tribes people.
Since all the relevant departments were brought under one roof in a camp, each beneficiary gets all the needed services at the camp itself, saving them the time and effort of visiting several offices.
Apart from these, other services such as income certificates, ownership certificates, age certificates and applications for new pensions were also provided.
