Jakarta Government through Social Agency is currently updating data to ensure Social Cash Assistance (BST) distribution process is running well and on target.
" For BST Phase 2, funds will be transferred simultaneously to beneficiary accounts in the second week of March 2021"

Due to changes in data, BST Phase 2 disbursement will be carried out in March, followed by Phase 3 disbursement.
"For BST Phase 2, funds will be transferred simultaneously to beneficiary accounts in the second week of March 2021. Except for new proposals that must wait for printing Bansos (social assistance) account book and ATM card. While for Phase 3 disbursement will be carried out by the end of March after completing Phase 2 fund transfer. God willing, it will be on time," she explained, as quoted from Jakarta PPID Press Release on Friday (3/5).
The following are things that can affect social cash assistance (BST) COVID-19 2021 to stop being given to Beneficiary Families (KPM);

b. There is changes in results of village meeting and field verification conducted by regional officers
c. Duplication in PKH/BPNT social assistance recipient

She continued, beneficiaries who are newly proposed in village deliberation forum are the result of BST Phase 1 evaluation and meet the criteria for obtaining social assistance. The beneficiaries will receive assistance in March 2021 according to BST card distribution schedule that will be informed by Bank DKI. "For BST recipients who cannot attend or are not represented will be re-invited at 2nd to 3rd invitations to take BST account card according to predetermined schedule," he explained.
For information, BST is given to people who have Jakarta ID card and family of social staple food assistance recipient in 2020, whose data has been updated and matched from Jakarta Population and Civil Registration Agency.
