Aadhaar Enrollment Assumes Significance
Getting enrolled under Aadhaar Scheme is becoming crucial to availing basic utility services in the country.
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s refusal to modify its interim order with regards to voluntary use of Aadhaar Card for welfare schemes other than the public distribution system (PDS) and LPG schemes, the Gurgaon administration has announced that Aadhaar cards are now mandatory for obtaining LPG cylinders in the district.
Aadhaar card enrollment may hold greater significance if other states in India follow a similar approach as the Gurgaon government. Therefore, the Aadhaar Enrollment could play a crucial role in getting an LPG connect in the near future.
