"Aadhaar To Help Reduce Duplicates In PDS"
(Saturday, February 11, 2012 8:06:57 AM IST)
Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee believes in UID as the basis for reforms in the public distribution system (PDS). "Use of the Aadhaar number in PDS will reduce duplicates, fakes and ghost beneficiaries in PDS databases which will result in reducing wastage and diversion in the system. Portability of benefits in PDS is of critical importance due to the migrant nature of India's poor population who are the most important targets of the Food Security Act. An Aadhaar-enabled system makes access to PDS benefits portable across a state and also the country," he recently said while addressing a conference on public distribution system in the capital. As PDS faces challenges like leakages and diversion of foodgrains, fake ration cards, lack of transparency, viability of fair price shops, etc., the best way to address these is through leveraging Aadhaar for unique identification, the minster added.

Got Your Aadhaar Number? Enroll For NPR Too
(Thursday, February 02, 2012 1:33:13 AM IST)
All citizens need to mandatorily get the union home ministry's national identity card, even if they have got their unique identification (UID) or an Aadhaar number.

An HT report quoted home minister P Chidambaram as saying that biometric details of those with Aadhaar numbers would not be collected again. However, the information provided for creating a UID card will be verified in the NPR data. "In case of variance, NPR data prevails and Aadhaar will be corrected," he clarified.
