The latest news about Aadhar comes on a daily basis. Today’s news is linking Aadhaar and mobile numbers with ration cards by the end of January 2021. As we know that Aadhaar is a unique identification number that consists of 12 digits and its eligibility is only for the citizens of India. Just like a ration card which is provided by the Indian government to their residents who are in need and are not able to buy food for their families and themselves. This ration card is used to get an allotted food which is given by the Public Distribution System. This department works under the National Food Security Acts (NFSA). A ration card is also used as an identification proof in India.
Aadhar serves as a key document throughout India. No one can think to live without it. There are several benefits of registering and getting an Aadhar card.
The Nashik district management had passed the law by saying that the people who are getting allotted food by the public distribution system and Antyoday scheme, should have to associate their Aadhaar and mobile number to their ration cards. The management also said that the procedure should be done before the end of January 2021.
If the one who is getting allotted food, do not complete this procedure will not be getting any advantage as per the promise made by the public distribution department from February 2021 till ahead. The government passed the law by saying that, partially one mobile number and Aadhaar number should be recorded from each family to link their ration cards with them, so the PDS can easily extend to the respected family. If the person does not submit his/her Aadhaar card number, will be considered as an unreal ration cardholder. The Fair Price Shop(FPS) will automatically remove that person’s part from the allotted food. And in this case, the FPS will not grant the food the to ration cardholder.
The process of recording the Aadhaar enrolment will be done by a specific drive fulfilled by the fair price shop (FPS). It is the shopkeeper’s responsibility to urgently inform the e-KYC (Know Your Customer) department if in January any of the ration cardholder or his family visits the shop to collect the allotted food.
People should keep in mind that the Government initiative to link Aadhar, mobile number with Ration Card is to increase transparency and overcome the corruption problems in the society. By doing this, more and more resources will be devoted to helping the people who are in need of Government grants. So, as an Indian resident, it is your responsibility to support the Government in completing the linkage or mapping process as soon as possible. If you wait for the last date, you may face trouble such as technical faults, etc. So, act now to avail the Government grants in the years to come.
