The notice was seen outside on a board outside a cremation ground in Faridabad’s Neharpar Mawai road, reported Mirror Now. 

The city mayor, however, denied the issue of any such notice. He further added that the that concerned authorities have been asked to look into the issue. The board has now been removed from the cremation ground. 

Earlier in August, the Centre had proposed linking Aadhaar number to the death certificate. However, the government later clarified that it was not mandatory.
