    Dear sir,
    When the AAdhar card scheme will be launched in Ladakh distt. of J&K state? I heard about this card through Doorgarshan Channels Advertisements. I found that this card is so helpful for every individual. Kindly start this scheme as soon as possible in our district, because our place is country side and it remains cut off from the rest of India for six-seven months, and our place is also important because we have so many borders here namely China, Pakistan, Tibet. As ur goodself knows that our place is so solitary and countryside that’s why whenever Govt. starts some scheme they should start it from here (Ladakh). Because the real AAM-ADMI in so extreme condition lives here in Ladakh. Kindly get the needful done. Yours Sincerely AAM-ADMI Tsewang Nurboo (Spituk) from Ladakh.
