Integrate Aadhaar with welfare schemes: TN

Chennai: Tamilnadu government has asked all the departments to integrate Aadhaar number with welfare schemes. This initiative is said to have been taken to avoid malpractices in welfare schemes.

The government has ordered to compulsorily add the Aadhaar number to whichever schemes possible.

Necessary corrections should be made in the forms and online application before 31 December, the government has instructed.

It is to be noted that the Tamilnadu government had ordered to recover gold loan amounts along with interest from those who have borrowed money from different cooperative banks from the same family.

Sources said that the government has found out that members from the same family have got gold loans from different cooperative banks which is against the rules. It is said they did this based on expectation that the government would waive off the loans.
