While the entire country was busy celebrating Dussehra on Saturday, a unique and hilarious incident took place on Twitter. After posting a Happy Dussehra tweet, UIDAI was asked about Aadhaar card for demon king Raavan. Undaunted, the UIDAI clearly said that Raavan is not eligible for an Aadhar card. Surprised? Well, this is exactly what happened! The official Twitter handle of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) which is the statutory authority charged with issuing the 12-digit Aadhaar number, shared a graphic showing 10 crossbows of “good governance” aimed at Raavan’s multiple heads.

“A time when the world sees the power of good governance. Let us continue this true spirit with Aadhaar… #HappyDussehra,” the tweet by UIDAI read. Even though the tweet was meant to be a positive one, it received one sarcastic reply. A Twitter user, who goes by the name of #DestroytheAadhaar asked how many Aadhaar cards a Raavan will have to get since he has 10 faces? “Sir how many Aadhaar can Ravan get? 10 faces * 10 iris pairs = 100 at least?” he posted.

On some other day, some other government body might have not even noticed this tweet but UIDAI, with a straight face, gave a stunning reply. “Not a resident of India. Not eligible to enroll for Aadhaar,” the tweet read. Here is the full conversation:

This response from UIDAI left Twitterati in splits, with the tweet gaining 4,500 retweets and 5,600 likes, at the time of writing. The wit did not end here as another user while praising the earlier tweet said, “the social media in charge of Aadhaar needs to be given a raise”. To this, the UIDAI concurred saying “agreed”.
