Is it correct? More than one crore card-holders have vanished!He has been very determined. Despite severe and sustained opposition from many camps, he directed the officers to link AADHAR with every scheme being implemented by the Government. He directed the officers to link AADHAR with PAN card, Bank Account, Life Insurance Policies, Mutual Fund portfolios, Demat Accounts, etc. Many pointed out the difficulties. Many people said that the direction would violate the privacy of the citizens. But he has been determined.
The reason behind the sustained opposition has come out in the open. The Government has released data which indicates that more than one crore fake names were registered under MGNREGA, The direction of linking AADHAR cards with MGNREGA has brought into light the massive scam being continued over the years in many states of the country.
It would be very difficult to count what a colossal amount of tax-payers' money was being wasted under this scam. Now after the linking, more than one crore bogus names have been deleted from the list of beneficiaries under MGNREGA. Hundreds of crores of money have been saved.
Thank you, Prime Minister for saving the tax-payers' money.
