Concise News reports that a cordial post on the verified social media handles of the scheme (Twitter and Facebook) on Monday morning generated complimentary comments from beneficiaries.
The mood is different from the often uncivil reactions from beneficiaries, especially times they are yet to be paid their monthly stipends.

The timely payment coupled with the ongoing headcount – which some volunteers believe is a step towards permanency – may have been the cause of the cheerfulness.
