How Can Aadhar Card Stop Corruption?by Santosh Kumar Website Promotion
These days, Aadhar has been mandatory for different purposes. From opening bank account to availing the benefits of Jan Dhan Yojana, Aadhar card is mandatory for all purposes. People have debated on benefits of using it for a while now. One of the major benefits is that it has slashed corruption to a great extent. So, let’s start with how it is helping India to avoid corruption from the root.
Subsidy Control – These days, only genuine LPG customers can avail subsidy using Direct Benefit Transfer which links Aadhar Card to the bank as well as LPG distributor. This step has been very beneficial for the government. This way, data cannot be manipulated about funds for subsidies.
Ban on Multiple Pan Cards – Many people had several PAN cards to evade taxes. Recently, the government has made it important to link their PAN card to Aadhar to keep people from holding multiple PAN cards. It also helped in eliminating corruption.
Keeping Tab on Government Employees’ Bank Accounts – It has also been mandatory by the government to link their Aadhar card to banks and this rule also applies to government services. Eventually, the government has been able to keep tab on cash flow in the accounts of government employees and it would definitely help avoid bribery in government employees.
Eliminate Duplicate Votes – According to some reports, some of the politicians have several voter IDs to vote for their party in elections using these ID cards. It is actually a gross corruption that can be common in elections. It is a big blow to the democracy. According to a recent notification, they are working on Aadhar card linking to keep the misuse of voting rights and to avoid fake Voter IDs.
Control Black Economy – It has also been mandatory to link Aadhar with PAN number and bank account to help government keep track on black money. Now, transactions are tracked easily as Aadhar is mapped with income tax and it has been easier to build a relation between income of a person and transaction.
