It is right that now it is the high time that Govt should focus towards this massive exercise and make the records alright. Unfortunately in our country we are very poor when it comes to implementation and local politics always comes in picture to safeguard the interests of the local voters in one way or other. States wants to have certain distributions as per their convenience and everyone knows how the records of people are maintained in the state Govt offices. So, the fact is that there should be only one card for one person and it should replace Adhar card, Ration card, Voter card, PAN card etc so that the credentials of that persons are known fully and his hidden bank accounts should be disclosed if any. Until this type of radical exercise is done, I do not see any improvement in the system especially at the implementation side. Even if a person has entered from outside in our country we can always issue him a card with a remark that he entered India in such and such year and will be here temporarily till he is sent back to his country of origin. The online details of this card holder will be known to the Govt on a continuous basis. Until we have this type of transparency in the system it would be very difficult to monitor as people will have multiple cards taking one benefit with one and other benefit with other. If a country wants to develop it has to take hard decisions which many people would not like especially whose black money is unearthed.
