Jakhal/Fatehabad: Families of BPL cardholders who received free ration from the government are now caught up in e-KYC again. Since cardholders’ thumb is not certified at the food depot operator’s ATMs, they have to face the hassle of performing e-KYC again to receive food from the government food depot. For this, laborers and daily wage earners have to walk to the Aadhaar center located in the sub-tehsil office. Here they have to stand in queues for hours to get their Aadhaar updated. For this reason, poor BPL families seem to have major problems.
Families who hold BPL ration cards said that the month is about to end but their ration is stuck at the food vending machines due to lack of thumb authentication. BPL beneficiaries said that around three months ago, the list of BPL ration cards of people was released systematically by the government and the list of ration cards was prepared on the basis of family ID and Aadhaar membership number, but now this has happened again out a list of people’s BPL ration cards. To complete the KYC of the members, one has to make trips to the Aadhaar center. To carry out e-KYC, BPL-beneficiary families had to take their children on leave from school on Tuesday and queue up at the Aadhaar center at the sub-tehsil office to update their Aadhaar. Meanwhile, these BPL families said that the programs run by the government for poor families were not being implemented locally. To provide relief to BPL ration card holders, the government is trying to harass them by introducing new rules. Here they are sent by the ration depot owner. This causes them to suffer unnecessarily. He demanded that the government implement the relief given to it quickly and properly.
BPL families presented their problems
Preeto, Chandu, Tarsem, Sandeep, Gudiya Ram and Hari Singh etc., who came with their children to get KYC of Aadhaar card created in Jakhal Sub-Tehsil, said that their BPL card was created earlier with much difficulty became. He said that he works hard to support his family. In the first list, his ration card was not issued because his income was higher than what was shown in the family certificate.

After taking his children on leave from school, he has come here to conduct a KYC experience at the Aadhaar center so that they can get rations.
