The government is considering a plan of linking the Aadhar card to the matrimonial accounts.Be it women or men, more than half of the accounts in the matrimonial sites are identified as fake. Due to this, the people who are completely dependent on these sites are going forward basing on the details specified and finally realizing that, they are cheated. Especially, the women are being cheated in these cases, and there are instances, where they even committed suicide. So to avoid these kinds of situations in the future, central minister Menaka Gandhi came out with an innovative proposal. She said that, when anyone decides to give an advertisement on any kind of matrimonial platforms, they should mention their Aadhar number too, which is to be noted by the concerned matrimonial sites and only then the advertisement will be valid. Speaking on the issue, the minister said that, when the above procedure is followed, it would be easier to find out the people with the fake accounts by their Aadhaar card number.  The proposal was unofficially granted by the government and regarding this, the department of Electronics and Information Technology is conducting a meeting with the marriage bureau managements on Wednesday. The decision on the issue would be taken by considering the ideas given by the marriage bureau managements in the meeting.Hope the new proposal comes into existence and save the women, who are completely being cheated by the fake accounts on the sites.By Phani
