After this many people became beneficiaries illegally. He first got the date of birth changed in his Aadhar card and after that made this change in Jan Aadhar card also and applied for pension. These were also approved. In this case, he was supported by the E-Mitra operators and he made these changes while taking the amount illegally. In this way, I have also taken action against them.
