  1. The mobile companies had suggested that from 1st December they will introduce visiting of their executives to residence of those who cant visit mobile co. offices for linkage of aadhar with sim ,due to illness etc. But till date on being asked or requesting for same no certain reply is being given by mobile service providers .In case they want to extend this facility ,they should inform their subscribers ,so that the needful can be done by cerain people ,without visiting mobile co. offices.

  2. For existing LIC policies ,post office accounts ,kvp etc ,the aadhar and pan card may be made compulsory to be shown at time of maturity and renewal and only for new accounts ,investments in these ,there should be requirement or giving copy of aadhar and Pan card .As on maturity the amounts are paid by cheques or transferred to bank accounts ,there cannot be any evasion.Now if existing investors are made to visit offices of insurance companies ,post offices etc for linking aadhar for investments already made ,the govt should think of time consumed and inconvenience to investors . As the deadlines of linking at various places is almost same ,it is very difficult for people especially old and retired ,who are main clients for these schemes to run from one to other place. The Govt should thus consider granting exemption for investments already made and insist for documents at time of maturity and renewal
