How to Get Final Installment under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY)? 

On the other hand, the government has used a new technique of odd-even number to avoid overcrowding in banks and ensuring social distancing.  

As per the schedule, women account holders under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) having account number with the last digit as 0 and 1 will get the money in their accounts on June 5, while accounts ending with 2 or 3 can approach the bank on June 6. 

On the other hand, the beneficiaries whose account numbers ended with 4 or 5 can collect their money on June 8, while accounts ending with 6 or 7 may withdraw on June 9. 

The last tranche would be remitted on June 10 for account numbers ending with 8 or 9, it said. 

In an emergency case, the beneficiary can withdraw the money immediately but must follow the banks' payment plan for orderly disbursal, it added.
