A public interest petition has been filed in the AP High Court questioning the decision of the authorities to link Aadhaar card for the purpose of supplying subsidised LPG gas cylinders.

Oil companies decided to insist on production of Aadhaar card when they get LPG cylinders. The petition was filed by G. Bala Goud, a city resident. The petitioner claimed that the State government, in its letter to the Union government, had now sought extension of the deadline on the ground that the Aadhaar enrolment process was still in progress.

The case is likely to be listed next week.
