Nellore: Even as people are facing several ordeals to obtain Aadhar Cards, police have found 169 Aadhar cards in the residence of a former corporator Velpula Rajani at Ummareddygunta of Nellore on Saturday.



Police have raided the house along with revenue and civil supplies wing officials following a tip off over the sale of the cards by the husband of the corporator. The team led by V Town CI S.V. Rajasekhar Reddy was puzzled when they found 169 cards, which are ready for delivery, in the house.



They had no clue as to how they are lying in the house when they are supposed to be delivered to the applicants by the postal department. In addition to the cards, the team also noticed applications for Aadhar, ID cards and Aadhar data enrolment receipts at the house during the search. This led to suspicion over printing of fake Aadhar cards.



When contacted, Reddy said that Velpula Rajani or her husband Sagar were not at home when they searched the place.



He said that Aadhar cards are being printed at the regional printing centre in Hyderabad with the data transferred from Bengaluru and sent as bulk mail to Central Post Office in Hyderabad.



Thereafter the cards are sent to post offices concerned through speed post based on the pin number. He said that cards are distributed by postmen only after obtaining signature of the card holder or his family members in a sheet containing 100 names of recipients.



“We are obtaining the sheets from the post office concerned to verify further whether the cards are delivered to the former corporator by some erring postman,” Reddy said.
