Control over fake beneficiaries due to the Aadhaar; country can save up to 77,000 crore every year!

JAN 08 (WTN) - From time to time, there has been questioning on Aadhaar card and the issue of the usefulness of the Aadhaar card was reached even before the Supreme Court of India. In its historic decision, Supreme Court had mentioned necessary of Aadhaar card in many services, and many of them had termed it as unnecessary and ended their indispensability there. During the UPA Government when the Aadhar service was brought, immediate Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi strongly opposed it but after becoming the Prime Minister of the country, Narendra Modi understood the usefulness of Aadhaar card and using its usefulness properly.

The Modi government, which has taken advantage of the usefulness of the Aadhaar for four consecutive years, has called the Aadhaar a game changer. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, on the benefits of Aadhaar, says three financial projects like Ayushman India can be financed from the financial savings generated from the implementation of the Aadhaar.

According to Finance Minister Jaitley, the supply of subsidy through Aadhaar has saved nearly 90,000 crores during the last few years up to March 2018. According to Jaitley, the Aadhaar card has helped in the removal of many duplicate, unknown and forged beneficiaries. He said that in the digital dividend report of the World Bank, it has been estimated that India can save about 77,000 crores every year from the Aadhaar.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has given credit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the success of the implementation of Aadhaar card in India. Jaitley says that due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the usefulness of Aadhaar card has been utilized in the right way; otherwise the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government worked apathetically on the Aadhaar due to its contradictions and not being able to take decisions. 

For your information, let you know that till now the subsidy of about Rs 1,69,868 crore has been transferred to the needy through the Aadhaar. Finance Minister Jaitley says that due to the disappearance of intermediaries, now the benefit is now going directly to beneficiary’s bank accounts. For your information, let you know that during the last 28 months, 122 crore Aadhaar numbers have been issued. 99% of the population of the country above the age of 18 years is under it.

Explaining the benefit of the Aadhaar, Finance Minister Jaitley said that 22.80 crore people are getting LPG subsidy through Aadhaar-based bank accounts. Jaitley said that 58.24 crore Ration Card holders have been linked with the Aadhaar and 10.33 crore MNREGA cardholders are being paid their wages smoothly through this.

Similarly, 1.93 crore beneficiaries of National Social Assistance Program are being paid in their accounts through the Aadhaar. Jaitley, while targeting the UPA government, said that a senior minister of the immediate government had stopped the idea of the Aadhaar. The UPA was divided on the Aadhaar idea of Nandan Nilekani. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was unable to take any decision at that time. Although the nomination was continued for the Aadhaarm, but its work was running very slow.

Finance Minister Jaitley has appreciated two people for the success of the Aadhaar. Jaitley said that Nandan Nilekani started it and later Dr. Ajay Bhushan Pandey gave it a new direction and expanded it. If the views of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley are believed, then the country is benefiting thousands of crores every year due to the Aadhaar because it has managed to stop the fake beneficiaries. It can be said that the UPA Government could not utilities the Aadhaar, it has been implemented better by Narendra Modi, whose benefits are getting to the country.
