Kasaragod: Around 2000 applications for Aadhaar, the individual identity card by Govt of India, were found abandoned on roadside. Documents including photo copies of necessary identity proofs for applying Aadhaar were found on the way side at Melpparambu for last two days.

The applications were submitted at the Akshaya Centres, which were entrusted for facilitating the Aadhaar service delivery, in Keezhur, Madhur and Chemmnad.

The government earlier made clear that all benefits including subsidies would be made available to the public through the identity cards. Therefore a large number of people applied for the card.

As many of the applications including that of the students were thrown away in roadside and nobody has come in search of the applications so far, the struggle of common people to obtain the card will continue in large scale.
