DELAY IN HANDING OVER OF ECHS SMART CARD TO ECHS BENEFICIARIES

Please refer to Central Organisation, ECHS letter No B/49711-IT/AG/ECHS dated 13 Sep 2018. (Copy enclosed).

The procedure of dispatching the 64 Kb ECHS Cards by the Card making company and their distribution by respective station HQ’s was given vide a/m letter. As on 17 Jul 2019, the card making company has printed and dispatched 8,33,468 cards to various station HQ’s through respective Regional Centres. It is seen that only 4,11,948 cards have been physically handed over by the station HQ’s to the beneficiaries. This shows that the rate of distribution by most of the station HQ’s is very low. This has led to dissatisfaction amongst the ESM.

In view of the above, it is requested that suitable instruction be passed to Station HQ’s under your justification to handover cards on priority and clear the backlog.
