In a gaffe, the image of an actress was embossed instead of the head of the family in a Smart PDS Card issued by authorities to a householder here.
The Smart Ration Card features the photograph of popular South Indian actress Kajal Aggarwal instead of the family head Saroja.
However the name has been correctly printed.
Addressing the media, Saroja’s relative said, “The picture on the smart card is of an actor, Kajal Aggarwal. The picture on the smart card and Saroja are not related in any way. Another woman from our neighbour also has a picture which does not look like her. How are we supposed to use this to get ration? We again have to go and get this photo changed now. Why can’t the officials do their work properly.”
Many people from the same village claim that there are several mistakes on their smart cards.
PMK leader Ramadoss criticised the government for these mistakes and said it is all due to the negligence of the government staff.
The smart card with the picture of actor Kajal Aggarwal has gone viral on social media.
