I do not want to apply for an Aadhar card, and the website and the Supreme Court ruling clearly state that it is not mandatory. However, to claim my discount on cooking gas (I am eligible for it) the Government has made Aadhar card mandatory. I am not sure if this is legal or not. The last time, to register for the connection, the Government had made Aadhar mandatory,but had later backed down and repealed the requirement.

However,I am not able to find any location in my area where I can even hand in the documents, all of which are filled up and ready. The official, and all associated, websitees are outdated and every place I call gleefully tells me that they won’t do it. So much of trouble for something I don’t even want in the first place, which is being forced on me.
Could someone help me? I live in JP Nagar 3rd Phase, south Bangalore.
