Congress-led UDF Government in Kerala has decided to defer its earlier plan to implement it from January 1. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the Opposition leaders had sought the issue to be discussed in the state Assembly before effecting transfer of various subsidies through banks.

The LDF had opposed the cash transfer scheme at an all-party meet convened by Chandy to work out a consensus on it. The opposition, however, wanted the government to bring the proposal to the Assembly for a threadbare discussion. In another decision, the cabinet proposed to take measures to strengthen the public distribution system in the state and make it transparent through computerisation.

It also approved a comprehensive scheme to rehabilitate and upgrade over 1000 km of roads in the state and seek funds from credit institutions like NABARD for the project.Replying to queries, Chandy said government would consider setting up a mechanism to look into widespread complaints about poor pay and working conditions prevailing in most unaided schools in the state.
