    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.

    One crore fake Aadhaar Cards ? Thats mind boggling scam which aimed at swallowing all the government offered schemes and programs. Time and again Modi government was insisting Aadhaar seeding for every purpose and even courts were not in favour fearing leakage of personal data to unknown sources. But our PM Modi wants to bring corruption of high order in the guise of duplicate AADHAAR CARD. Now a thorough investigation through CBI must be investigated and earth out who was behind this scam which aimed at swallowing all the government funds and also the cards must have used during demonetisation ?

    No, Mr. Mohan , not AADHAR cards. More than one crore fake job cards under MGNREGA. This scam has come to the notice after linking of AADHAR cards with job card-holders.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    Even Aadhaar cards are duplicated during the demonetisation and the IT sector would soon come with details of such cards as old notes was exchanged for new with Aadhaar as compulsion.

    Mindboggling figure!

    Highlights the point I made in another thread. People are corrupt. They make use of every loophole to their advantage.

    And if what Mohan has stated is correct then here is a question. How was duplicate Aadhaar registration made possible? The system should have identified the similarities in not just the address etc, but in the fingerprints and irises and turned down the request. So, is the news correct?

    Anyway, Aadhaar was not mandatory during demonetisation or was it?

    When people wanted to take old notes for new and that exchange was made at post office and other banks, there was compulsion to submit Aadhaar card which even I did.

    What a country? Are the people of this country so ethicless? If there is any chance they can try to get the parliament Bhaven registered in their name. A benefit of linking Aahaar with various benefits given by government has resulted in such a big revelation. This will be an indication that how much governemnt money or as said by the author the taxpayer's money is going and helping the heedless people.
    Why many people are opposing this linking is now understood by all. One crore bogus beneficiaries, which is a very big number which can't be imagined. These things will not happen without the support of officials at the helm of affairs and the politicians. Now slowly many other facts and figures may come out with this.
    But even BJP government is also not helping in any way to the taxpayer and following the same laws that are existing for a long time. In this country, the only sufferer is a Tax Payer who is earning by taking many difficulties and doing service in private firms and spending their life.

    #625956 - I do not recall there being any compulsion for Aadhaar number to be submitted while depositing the banned currency with the bank. Account holders were required to submit their PAN card details on the form that had to be filled and submitted along with the money.

    Many people did not have an Aadhaar card and the rule that made linking of Aadhaar cards to the bank accounts was introduced much later.

    There are still many people who do not have Aadhaar card yet. I know of at least one sprightly young thing who refuses to get an Aadhaar card. Also, the last date for linking of Aadhaar number to financial institutions is in March. How could it then have been mandatory to submit Aadhaar number during demonetisation? There would have been chaos had that happened.

    It's a combined efforts in aspects of the policies & the implementation on behalf of the elected government that now the result is showing & curious to see the coming part.

    The opening of the bank a/c for the poor along with getting them insured with the min sum, then Demonetization, then BENAAMI (Transactions) Act amended and notified after 18 years, then Switzerland signs the treaty to share all real time financial transaction details with India, crore of unaccounted money by 64,200 people declared under the Voluntary Income Disclosure, approximately 18 Lakh people who have made deposits of "unaccounted sum" post demonetization identified. Income Tax department sends notice to them, asking them to explain the unaccounted Cash transactions have been reduced & paving the way for electronic transactions so that the same can be traced back t o whatever transaction seems dubious. & on latest the elections to be conducted simultaneously for Central & State & many more.

    One thing that the above is not the way it did happened. Adding, I have tried to provide few examples as the complete details would never be possible is such small articles but surely a bold & mature steps that even world has large is now observing this government. So many big decisions in such a short time & is such a uncertain that even the most experienced is not sure about what is going to happen.

    Last year we heard about the 2.3 odd crore bogus ration cards found while linking Aadhaar cards with savings of 14,000 crores to the country. Now this, 1 crore odd job cards under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act. MGNREGA is said to be one of the world's biggest rural employment schemes, so we can safely guess about the magnitude of this scam. Can the money lost in the scheme be recovered from the culprits? I think if in one scam we religiously recover the swindled money, then it would make the scamsters think before they start such scams.

  • #626124
    Anyone aware how many names are under MGNREGA right now? Any official websites to refer state-wise split-up about head count and the amount spent each year, etc. It would give more clarity on this scam.

    Though people are a bit puzzled with the various cards like voter card, PAN card, Aadhaar card etc and always ask why so many cards are required and also intrigued why it is to be linked with banks, share market etc but they do not know that the idea behind all this is to catch the defaulters.

    Please note that no genuine person is against the move of the Govt to link cards to bank account or mutual fund. The people who have managed to hide their money behind fake names and duplicate cards ( by giving fake names against some known address) are actually baffled by the Govt strictness.

    Common people have no knowledge of these tricks and malpractice which some clever people are practicing to siphon great amounts out of Govt chest.

    Knowledge is power.
