Yes, they are the same.

If you do not have a bank account, you can still receive the benefit. Once Meghalaya TMC forms the government in 2023, an official will guide you through the process to receive funds, based on the details we collect now.
It is advised to keep the card safely. However, we have the Unique Identification Number (UID) of everyone registering through SMS or online confirmation, which can be used to reissue the card in the future.
The scheme aims to provide non-discriminatory, guaranteed income support to each household, which is why the scheme only targets one woman from each household who can avail the benefit, and not multiple, since the number of women in each household may vary.
With people’s blessings, as soon as TMC forms the government in Meghalaya the scheme will be implemented, and a woman from each household can avail this benefit.
