Prasad visits widows of Vrindavan Ashram to issue Aadhaar

Telecom Minsiter, Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad visited the widows of Vrindavan. He made this trip to an ashram to issue aadhar numbers to them. According to him, this is a ‘high watermark’ of digital India. Till date, only 15.2 crore aadhar numbers have been generated in Uttar Pradesh. This is 72% of the population the mentioned state, according to the numbers recorded in the year of 2015.

As for Mathura district, 18.44 lakh aadhar numbers have been generated. This is 68.5% of the total population of that area. Mr. Prasad is of the opinion that the aadhar system is a very good way in which the underprivileged and the poor can be incorporated into digital India. The widows he visited will have a digital identity now and will be able to enjoy benefits of public distribution scheme, Jan Dhan Yojana and others.

The minister also said that the government is also working on a mobile application that will give access to people of over 1000 services from the Centre and state governments. This application is set to be launched by December 2016.
