He alleged that this was due to sheer negligence.  Member Bhaskar demanded that the people involved in the data entry be fined. He said entries need to be cross-verified. A resolution should be passed against irregular entries in ration cards, Aadhaar cards and income and caste certificates, he added.

Member Rama Kulal also joined other members in condemning the mistakes done in the ration cards and Aadhaar cards.

In-charge Executive Officer Rajendra Bekal said he would inform Deputy Commissioner over the irregularities.  Member Devdas Hebbar demanded clarification over the criteria on which the tax is levied. He said in Belle gram panchayat, the PDO has charged heavy and unreasonable tariff to the public.

Hebbar also said the census copy of 2011 comprising the details of Belle gram panchayat also has many mistakes.  It needs to be reconsidered as reservation would be decided based on the census of 2011.

The list says that there are nearly 156 people belonging to SC/ST communities in the gram panchayat.  As per the list, there are 29 people belonging to ST communities. However, there are only three people in the region. The total population of Belle  gram panchayat is 7130, he added.
