What is the benefit of a Jan Dhan account?

PMJDY is a National Mission for Financial Inclusion. PMJDY account holders will be given a RuPay Debit card. The main idea is that an unbanked person will have one basic savings bank account so that many of Central Government benefits can be directly transferred to their bank account, thereby eliminating middle men and corruption. You can read about the Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) – Benefits & Implementation in the given link.
