A favourable decision is expected from the Union Petroleum Ministry by today evening or tomorrow, according to a statement from the Chief Minister's Office.

Oil marketing companies had fixed February 15 deadline for Aadhaar cards.

The CM has directed the officials to open 200 additional Aadhaar enrolling centres in addition to the present 210 functioning in the twin cities and Ranga Reddy district.

The Government has requested the consumers not to worry over this issue as a favourable decision is expected from the Centre.
