SummaryThe government’s decision to begin rolling out Aadhar-based payments to 51 of India’s 659 districts by January next year, 18 states from April 2013 and the remaining 16 states by April 2014 or earlier is probably the biggest reforms step the country has seen in a long time and, more important, has seen relatively little opposition as compared to measures like, say, raising the FDI limits in insurance from 26% to 49%.

distribution of foodgrains—once government procurement of grain reduces as the poor get cash transfers, the government will save money and can just as well increase Aadhar payments under this head.
