Hello Sir/Madam, Aadhar is being advertised as a magic wand to clean the loopholes in the current social schemes. However, the process of getting Aadhar itself is corrupt. From my personal experience I had to bribe Rs.100 to have details added to national database. Aadhar was advertised as a 'free' social identity card. What is the actual fee for getting Aadhar and why are people being misled.

Posted on February 02, 2017 by Balaji Pasupathy

According to present UIDAI declaration, link- http://aadhaarcarduid.org/aadhaar-frequently-asked-questions/ clearly mentions that there is no fee associated with any stage of the Aadhar Registration process . Recently the UIDAI has started taking action against Aadhar centres that ask for money. In case of encountering such an event, one cna report to us, and we can submit the Grievance to the the UIDAI, for further action.

Hi,I am looking to file a complaint against an official in the Home Department of Uttar Pradesh. Could you guide me as to under which area of government does it fall?Thanks.

The jurisdiction of Home department can vary slightly from state to state. Generally, the police, prison, Fire services, home guards and Sainik welfare are the departments which fall under the purview of Home department. Department of prosecution is put under Home in some states.

I'm from Himachal Pradesh, recently Himachal was awarded Rs650 Crores under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna. In a certain district of Himachal Pradesh there is a nexus between a leading contractor and HPPWD hence alomst 6-10 contracts were unfairly awarded through pooling process and malpractices. This has caused exchequer a loss of more than 15cr (Because of the rates at which contracts are awarded). I have all the facts and figure handy and intact but I don't know whom to approach.

A corrupt police officer has implicated me and my father in a serious case . Even , I was not present at the place of incident . ( I have sufficient proof to show my alibi ). He also managed local doctor and took a false firearm injury report from him . The informant actually suffered no such injury. I am preparing for UPSC . My career and future is at stake . My father is a 60 yrs old man . He was behind the bars without any guilt . What should we do ?

Posted on December 06, 2016 by Raj Prashar

Your question does not have details. Depending on where this incident has occurred , please meet a very senior police officer under whom the case comes directly and in whom you have confidence  and give a detailed representation. In the alternative you may also approach a senior officer from the vigilance/ anti corruption agency/Lok Ayukta and provide a representation. You also have the choice to try both the options simultaneously in order to be sure that at least one of the agencies acts on your complaint.

I recently changed my electricity connection (BESCOM Supply) from COMMERCIAL to DOMESTIC.We have paid all the due charges and even paid an amount of INR 5,500 without any receipt givenFollowing payment of INR 5,500, now the "Sub Contractor" is demanding additional INR 3,200 as additional amount for the consumed electricity as "Arrears" due to "HIGH CONSUMPTION". Owing to this, our electricity meter has still not been converted to DOMESTIC

Posted on December 05, 2016 by Yash Ponnanna

A BESCOM’s form for transfer of electrical connections (which you must have submitted to BESCOM) contains very important information viz outstanding arrears must be cleared, the consumer must pay the costs of installation, the consumer must also pay security deposit, fixed charges and advance as fixed by BESCOM.  Payment is made to BESCOM. The sub-contractor cannot demand any money as arrears. BESCOM alone can do so after raising a bill. Please complain to your local BESCOM office about the sub- contractor’s unauthorized demands.
