Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked for immediate integration all the land records with Aadhaar in order to monitor successful implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana or crop insurance scheme.
The Prime Minister emphasised on Aadhaar integration while examining the progress of digitisation of land records under the Digital India programme at a monthly PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation) meeting recently. Aadhaar has been made mandatory for residents to avail any public service.

The PM also urged the officers to further accelerate work in this regard, it added.
Modi also requested to increase investment and efforts to enhance ease of doing business, which is very necessary to create a positive perception, the statement said.
The progress of vital infrastructure projects in the roads, railways, power and oil sectors spread over several states including Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand was also reviewed by the prime minister, the PMO statement said.
