THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE
(SHRI ASHWINI KUMAR CHOUBEY)

(c): For effective implementation and proper monitoring of the JSY scheme, the Ministry has issued the following instructions to State Governments:
Setting up of grievance redressal cells for prompt redressal of all grievances;
To ensure fast and seamless flow of funds under JSY from State headquarters to District and further to Block PHCs and Sub-centre levels and payment of financial assistance before discharge of pregnant women after delivery;
Payment of cash assistance under JSY to all beneficiaries through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) mode;
Public display of names of JSY beneficiaries in health facilities on a monthly basis so as to ensure transparency and check fraudulent payments;
Physical verification of beneficiaries by State and District officials in a random manner;
To create awareness on JSY, States/UTs have been authorized to utilize upto 5% of JSY budget on administrative expenses including IEC. 

Further periodic verification of beneficiaries and assessment of the scheme is being done by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare through the Regional Evaluation Teams (RETs) of the Regional Directorates. 

Since 2011-12, the Ministry is also getting the annual transaction audit of the National Health Mission (NHM) done through the Comptroller & Auditor General of India (CAG) in all the States in order to facilitate independent monitoring and to take corrective measures to control financial irregularities.
