Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajeev Shukla said in the Lok Sabha: "Complaints of a large number of Aadhaar letters not delivered from post offices have been received."

He said the government had taken various measures and also instructed all the postal circles in the country to ensure their "smooth and timely delivery".
