- While there has been a massive outcry about linking pan cards, mobile numbers, bank accounts and what not, in the country, authorities are adamant to commit errors and add to people’s woes.
- In a small town in Madhya Pradesh, more than 5,000 people from five villages have the same birth date on their Aadhaar card due to some technical glitch.
- Around 80% of the people in Palsoda, Devpura, Fatah Nagar, Jetpuria and Bhopalganj villages in Neemuch, MP – with an approximate population of 7,000 have the same birthday – January 1.
- Because of this technical error, many people are being denied the government schemes that they were entitled to.
- The villagers have complained to the authorities that details on their other documents and Aadhaar cards do not match.
- The software for Aadhaar is designed in a way that it automatically lists January 1 as the date of birth for people who do not know their actual birthday. It takes between 5-10 days to get the correction done.
- The lackadaisical approach from the government in a matter to worry. In Jharkand, people have died of hunger recently because they did not link their ration card to Aadhaar, and were hence denied subsidised food.
