Smartcitizen, you must have known that during the Covid-19 pandemic there was a social cash transfer fund from the government for residents in need. Previously, this social aid was provided in the form of basic necessities. But now, social aid is distributed in a form of cash which is called Bantuan Sosial Tunai (BST). BST is given to people affected by Covid-19 to meet basic needs.
For residents of DKI Jakarta, if you are registered, you will be eligible to receive BST from the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta. This fund comes from the DKI Jakarta Regional Budget. For those of you who are registered as BST recipients, you will receive the fund that is distributed through a DKI Bank account in the amount of IDR 300,000/month. This distribution will be carried out for 4 months from January to April 2021.
BST recipients are citizens registered as recipients of social basic food assistance in 2020 as a result of updating and matching data from the Disdukcapil or Jakarta Civil Registry Office. BST recipients do not include recipients of the Family Program Social Fund (PKH) and/or Non-Cash Food Fund (BPNT)
The following is the BST distribution mechanism for those of you who are registered:
The process of disbursement is gradual and rotating throughout the Jakarta administrative area starting in January 2021.
There are 160 distribution points in each administrative area & a maximum of 500 people per day at each point.
Receiving an invitation for a maximum of D-1 from the designated regional officer.
If you do not attend according to the first schedule, it will be rescheduled for the second invitation until the third invitation after the first stage distribution is completed in the 5 municipalities of Jakarta & Kepulauan Seribu.
To make it easier for Jakartans to check whether or not they are BST recipients, you can use the JAKI application with a smartphone. Here's how:
