Addressing Congress office-bearers at the party's 'war room' on Gurudwara Rakabganj Road, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said the government would try to roll out the scheme in 51 districts on January 1 but it was at present checking levels of preparedness in each district.

The finance minister, who is scheduled to visit some of these districts, said at least 80 per cent preparedness was needed for the scheme to be launched, according to sources.

Incidentally, the Congress appeared to be cagey about calling the scheme 'cash transfer'. A 12-page note on frequently asked questions circulated at the press conference called it a Direct Benefits Transfer Scheme.
