Special camps will be organised in all urban units of the district to intensify Aadhaar seeding. District Collector O P Choudhary asked the officials to start the camp from August 16 in a meeting held at collectorate on Saturday.  The district collector asked for biometric verification of those beneficiaries whose aadhaar seeding is already completed. The Collector also asked the officials for disposal of applications received at Lok Seva centres and warned of action in case of any dereliction. Also present on the occasion were District Panchayat Chief Executive Officer Nilesh Kshirsagar, Raipur Municipal Corporation Rajat Bansal, zone commissioners, CMOs of municipal councils and CEOs of janpad panchayats.

Meanwhile, under the directive of the District Collector O P Choudhary, police teams took preventive actions against use of plaster of paris in making idols of Lord Ganesha. The teams on Saturday carried out action at Mana Basti, Devpuri, Ramkund, Raipura, Mathpuraina, Tilda and Abhanpur. However, teams found nothing wrong being done by the artists. It is to be mentioned, use of synthetic chemical, paints and dye are banned in idol making. Central Pollution Board and NGT have issued necessary directives in this direction.
