Aadhaar exposed over 5 crore fake and Ghost Account in India

Aadhaar exposed over 5 crore fake and Ghost Account in India
According to a recent report published by New Indian Express, it has been revealed that aadhaar card has helped the government in tracking down over 5 crore ‘ghost accounts’ in the country.

These details were revealed by Piyush Goyal, who is the Minister if Railways and Coal in India on last Saturday. Ever since the government has made it mandatory for Indian citizens to link their aadhaar accounts with their LPG, bank account, and other government approved services, the government has found and eliminated millions of fake and ghost accounts from the said authorities list. Government has captured 1.6 fake ration cards and 3.5 crore LPG connections with the help of this aadhaar card linking rule. Piyush Goyal shared a video on his Twitter account which he captioned saying that Aadhaar helped in exposing over 5 crore, ghost accounts, including ration cards of over 1.6 crore fake users and 3.5 crore LPG connections.

Goyal tweeted this great news one day after Supreme Court heard the plea under which Aadhaar card has been accused of challenging the “constitutional Validity” of Indian citizens.
