Descriptive Test

Write a Letter To The Executive Health Counselor, Delhi administration, Delhi, requesting him to set up a dispensary in your village. You are XYZ, the Sarpanch of KMN village in Delhi.

The Sarpanch,
KMN Village,
12 December 2017.

The Executive Health Counsellor,
Delhi Administration,

Subject: A dispensary in KMN Village.

Respected Sir/Madam,

With the above-mentioned subject, I’d like to draw your attention towards the need of KMN village to set up a dispensary. I am the Sarpanch of KMN village, writing a letter to you on behalf of the entire village about our concern of having a dispensary inside the village.

The nearest dispensary is not actually close to us. Villagers have to stroll a long way to get a treatment against minor flu symptoms. The village hasn’t witnessed any serious problems due to this, but we do not wish for one to arrive.

Children in the village are prone to a lot of diseases. They experience a sudden rise in their body temperature or symptoms go way out of control due to inadequate medical attention and inadequate medication. Being the Sarpanch of the village, it is my duty to make proper arrangements to provide the right medication and time to time treatment for all villagers.

Health is a basic aspect that needs attention. With a dispensary inside the village itself, it shall become convenient for villagers to seek medical advice and understand the condition of their health and also take proper precautions. The experts in the dispensary shall help create an awareness among the villagers about specific diseases and hygiene.

Kindly do the needful as soon as possible. KMN shall be highly grateful if you consider our need and take some action.

Thanking You.

Scope and benefits of linking aadhar card with bank accounts

The issue has been debated extensively at different forums, and it all ended with the Supreme Court ruling in favor of linking Aadhaar Card and the biometrics with numerous services. It brought to an end the several petitions challenging the validity and the logic of connecting Aadhaar with various services.

The frequent reminders that we are getting in the form of messages on our mobiles to link Aadhaar Cards with many essential services. RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has also made it mandatory to connect bank accounts with Aadhaar number with the deadline being 31st December 2017.

As per the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), linking the card with various schemes aids in eliminating duplicities and fakes. It eventually provides factual data helpful in the implementation of different welfare schemes of the Government and at the same time ensuring that the benefits reach the ones intended for.
As already seen in the case of Permanent Account Numbers (PAN), mandatory linking with Aadhaar lead to weeding out duplicate PANs and minimize tax leakages. It is similarly expected that linking bank accounts will bring down benami (buying of property without registering the same in the name of the buyer but some other person) transactions and money laundering activities.

For account holders linking the bank account will provide us access to the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS). Even a rural person with little exposure will be able to transfer or receive payments in a seamlessly easy way.

The various subsidies on commodities like sugar, rice, pulses, kerosene and other similar products will be directly transferred to our linked bank account. Further, the LPG subsidy will also be credited only to the bank account with which consumer’s Aadhaar Card is connected with. Therefore, to receive the credit of the subsidy amount the linking of the account number of the consumer is necessary.

The various scholarship schemes of the Government meant for the students will also adhere to this guideline.
The rural citizens of India and more importantly the BPL (Below the Poverty Line) families, the wages under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee (MNREGA) will get credited only to the bank account of the workers. Similarly with regards to the tribal welfare schemes, the same will be applicable.

With all these benefits in mind, we all need to take this small step of linking our bank accounts with our Aadhaar Cards. Failing which, the banks will have the right to freeze our accounts as per the government directive.

Devising the government welfare schemes and its implementation becomes effective when the authorities have access to accurate data. Linking bank accounts with Aadhaar Card is going to ensure this. The benefits of the various government schemes will not go wasted and will be received by the ones for which the plans were intended.

Although, there are concerns regarding privacy and frauds that need to be addressed. If one links his Aadhaar fraudulently with someone’s account, he can use AEPS to withdraw money. These procedural issues also need to be addressed.
