If you are an LPG holder and still haven’t got yourself enrolled for an AADHAR card, you have just received a reprieve from the State Government – though the cut-off date for enrollment for LPG holders to avail of the Government’s scheme to transfer cash directly into the holder’s AADHAR-linked saving’s bank account for not more than nine gas cylinders per financial year, was February 15, 2013, the State decided to extend this date by a month.
Hence, the new cut-off date for enrollment is now March 15, 2013, said Chief Secretary Jayantkumar Banthia in a meeting yesterday.
Moreover, such LPG holders would receive first preference at UID enrollment centres across the city and State throughout this month. There would be separate lines for them. However, the enrollment process for others will also continue simultaneously, till December 31, 2013. Obviously, non-LPG holders would do well to attempt enrollment after March 15 to prevent additional chaos at each centre.
The subsidy will be transferred directly into the holder’s bank account if he/she provides the bank with the AADHAR number and ask for the AADHAR number to be linked to their account.
