Lobby groups had previously disapproved of the department’s move to change the criteria for applicants to be approved for the grant, as this would result in millions of South Africans being disadvantaged.

However, the department’s Minister Lindiwe Zulu has published draft regulations to amend some of the provisions for the SRD grant for the period 1 March 2022 to 31 March 2023.

In a statement, the department announced:

The key proposed amendments relate to the maximum allowable income, the application of the bank verification and the requirement for applicants to confirm their need for the grant after every three months.

According to statistics, individuals who had R624 a month available for food were living below the poverty line, according to the South African national standards.

In this draft, the maximum allowable income for applicants has been increased from R350 to the food poverty line of R624.
