Government Letter Asking To Link Property To AADHAR Is Fake !!!
The PIB (Press Information Bureau) said that the government has issued no such letter attributed to Cabinet Secretariat on Digitization of Land Records & subsequent linking of the same to Aadhaar. The letter was fake.
Officials’ Statements :
The district information offices in the state rolled a circular to this effect to the revenue department. As per the revenue department officials; since, digitization of land records was incomplete; therefore, it was not possible to follow the central order.
Officials of the revenue department says that the letter was on a watermark sheet. The move was to take appropriate action against those not linking properties to Aadhaar number under the benami transaction act.
“Only after error-free digitized records are uploaded, can they be linked with Aadhaar. We have no notification on the same,” said an official.
