Brief Information about Delhi

- No comments

Delhi (/ˈdɛli/, Hindustani pronunciation: [d̪ɪlliː] Dilli; Devanāgarī: दिल्ली), officially the National Capital Territory of Delhi, is the capital territory of the Republic of India. Delhi is historically and culturally connected to both the Upper Doab of the Yamuna-Ganges river system and the Punjab region. It is bordered by Haryana on three sides and by Uttar Pradesh to the east. It is the most populous city in India—about 1,484 square kilometres (573 sq mi). It has a population of about 25 million, making it the most populous city and most populous urban agglomeration in India and 2nd largest urban area in the world. Such is the nature of urban expansion in Delhi that its growth has expanded beyond the NCT to incorporate towns in neighbouring states and at its largest extent can count a population of about 25 million residents as of 2014. After Mumbai, Delhi has the second-highest number of billionaires and millionaires among all cities in India.

Delhi has been continuously inhabited since the 6th century BCE. Through most of its history, Delhi has served as a capital of various kingdoms and empires. It has been captured, ransacked and rebuilt several times, particularly during the medieval period, and modern Delhi is a cluster of a number of cities spread across the metropolitan region.

Delhi and its urban region have been given the special status of National Capital Region (NCR) under the Constitution of India's 69th Amendment Act of 1991. The NCR includes the neighbouring cities of Faridabad, Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad, Neharpar (Greater Faridabad), Greater Noida, Bahadurgarh, Sonepat, Panipat, Karnal, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Rewari, Baghpat, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Alwar, Bharatpur and other nearby towns. A union territory, the political administration of the NCT of Delhi today more closely resembles that of a state of India, with its own legislature, high court and an executive council of ministers headed by a Chief Minister. New Delhi is jointly administered by the federal government of India and the local government of Delhi, and is the capital of the NCT of Delhi.

Origin of the name Delhi

There are a number of myths and legends associated with the origin of the name Delhi. One of them is derived from Dhillu or Dilu, a king who built a city at this location in 50 BC and named it after himself. Another legend holds that the name of the city is based on the Hindi/Prakrit word dhili (loose) and that it was used by the Tomaras to refer to the city because the Iron Pillar of Delhi had a weak foundation and had to be moved. The coins in circulation in the region under the Tomaras were called dehliwal. According to the Bhavishya Purana, King Prithiviraja of Indraprastha built a new fort in the modern-day Purana Qila area for the convenience of all four castes in his kingdom. He ordered the construction of a gateway to the fort and later named the fort dehali. Some historians believe that the name is derived from Dilli, a corruption of Urdu words dehleez or dehali—both terms meaning 'threshold' or 'gateway'—and symbolic of the city as a gateway to the Gangetic Plain. Another theory suggests that the city's original name was Dhillika.

We have already discussed the benefits of getting Aadhaar Card issued. Though the project is relatively new and it has had it's own share of limitations, but is being increasingly being used by the government for public services related uses.

Now, lets see how to get one made for yourself. We will discuss both ways - Online and offline modes of applying for Aadhaar Card

Let us first take a look at offline method of applying for Aadhaar Card:

Aadhaar application is an appointment based process. This means, you will have to take an appointment before you go and meet the Aadhaar officials for your application.

Eligibility criteria for applying for Aadhaar Card:

  • You must be a resident of India, Non Resident Indian (NRI) or any foreign citizen residing in India
  • You can be of any age to apply for Aadhaar number. Children of age less than 3 years do not require giving bio-metric information. Their Aadhaar Card will be linked to the parents or the guardian. Once the child turns 5 years of age, he/she will need to give his/her bio-metric information
  • Children who their Aadhaar Cards made before the age of 15, will need to get their Bio-metric information re-registered once they turn 15 years old as by this age their bio-metrics would have changed.

Detailed steps for application for Aadhaar Card:

  • Visit the link - Fill all the details as requested and then click on 'Fix Appointment' button. Here is the screenshot of how the webpage looks like:

  • Entering the Mobile Number is very important as it will be used for sending all the updates to you and will also be used in case you want to get your appointment cancelled or rescheduled.
  • Once you fill the person details you can select the enrollment center and the date and time of the appointment online.
  • Once you have appointment details, you will need to visit the Aadhaar center to get yourself verified and registered with the UID department. Note that you will have take your original documents along with the print-out of the appointment form with you for first-level verification of your particulars.
  • The officials at the center will verify your details, take your photograph and will record your bio-metric readings. Bio-metric readings are your finger-prints, your eye-ball patterns, etc.
  • With this, the official will ask you to verify the details on the computer screen - the way it will get printed on the actual Aadhaar Card. Verify these properly as these details will get printed on your Aadhaar Card.
  • Once this process is complete, it will take a few days for your Aadhaar Card to get printed and get delivered at your home.
Here is a small animated video which shows the above process in an animated format:

    • Photo ID card
    • Ration card
    • Passport 
    • PAN Card

Please note that the above process has been written based on the inputs from official Aadhaar website. But, it can change anytime without us getting any intimation. Hence, you should check the official website for exact process.

International calls from +231 / +341 and the scam behind it

- No comments
Have you received a call or a missed call from an international number? And when you called back, you realized later that you have been charged a bomb for calling those paid numbers? If Yes, you are not alone who has fallen for this new age scam.

For ages, there have been always a section of people who make a living by tricking other people and getting away with it. Nowadays, scammers have found new ways to make money. This post tries to save you from one such scam being operated from some countries such as Liberia, Algeria, etc. These numbers will generally start from +231 / +341 and even +92 (Pakistan).

How does the +231 Premium CallBack scam work?

For anyone who hasn’t received such a call, this is how the scam rolls out. You get a missed call from an unknown number. This missed call starts with the international code +231 which is of Liberia and generally comes in at odd hours like late night or middle of the day i.e. a time when most like you will notice the call. Now when you check your phone and see the missed call notification, out of sheer habit you may just call back to understand who had called. And that’s exactly what the scammers want.

These calls mostly come in at odd times to make you feel you truly missed an important call. When actually these calls never last for more than 2 rings! When you call back these numbers, they will connect you with a premium hotline number, which will call you somewhere around Rs. 45-90 per minute. When you call in, there may be a voice saying something like – “Hello, you have reached the operator. Please hold.” or something else to make you wait longer. This way you end up paying a lot more for every second you hang out. By the time you disconnect you will realize either you are out of precious mobile balance or there is a bump in your monthly bill.
Some of the numbers these calls originate from are:


This list may not cover all numbers as these keep changing but essentially they are all with the same ISD code. If you have received one such call from a different number, do let us know through comments so that we can add it here.

So what should you do?

First this first - never call back on these numbers.

But the bigger problem here is that there are scammers who keep calling from different numbers to trick you in different ways. Now how can you make sure that you already find out that the call in not genuine and save hard-earned money?

Firstly, when you get a missed call from any unknown number – do not immediately call back.
Similarly if you get a call from an unknown number who is offering you any kind of deal and congratulating you for being lucky – do not believe them.
Once you get the missed call or you are done talking with the suspicious person, check if someone has reported the same as scam. These people use the same tricks on a lot of people and quite of few of them are reported online. To find out, there are two ways:

Check it on TrueCaller's spam check

Good old google. Simply google the number or the scheme. In your search string, add the word 'Scam'.

The other way is installing TrueCaller. TrueCaller is an app where you can mark any number as scam adding it to a global database and others will find the same. So you can simply search for the number and find details like the potential name, location of the call and if it has been flagged by others.

It is better to spend some time understanding whether the call was genuine or not instead of rushing to call back the number and to ask - 'Hi, who is this?' and loosing a big money. Stay cautious and do not fall for any too-good-to-be-true offers. Definitely do not call back to that missed call number.

In case you have already fallen for this scam - please share your experience here so that our readers can know more about it.
