Gas Cylinder procurement vs Aadhaar Card.
In my opinion "Aadhaar Card" is a cruel joke played on the common man. It has already siphoned off several Crores of tax money.
Today's newspapers carry the news that Supreme Court has passed an interim order stating that it can only be issued to those with proven Indian nationality and cannot be mandatory for accessing public services and subsidies.
However the Gas agencies are insisting of linking Aadhaar numbers with Bank accounts to reimburse cash subsidy. I wonder when the matter is under judicial review how the Government could insist on such procedures.
Every day a new rule is imposed on the people by Cooking Gas supply firms. The latest being, if a customer do not draw their quota of Gas cylinder for six months, he/she has to take the original documents to the Gas Supply Agency to revive supply.
