The combined income of the families of people applying for state welfare cards, along with other assets including their homes, land and saving bonds could be taken into consideration to determine elgibility as authorities scramble to ready the next round of registration.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has instructed the Ministry of Finance to review the criteria of those who apply to root out any abuse of the system.
Government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana said yesterday that the finance and labour ministries are sharing data to enable a review of state welfare eligibility to prevent duplication so that low-income people can truly benefit.
Mr Thanakorn said Gen Prayut has instructed the Finance Ministry to ensure that applicants meet all the criteria while the Fiscal Policy Office is preparing a new round of registration for the welfare cards.
The new criteria are expected to be forwarded to the cabinet for consideration next month.
