• Pension with fraud details

One person is getting the AASARA social security pension with fraud details. To get the pension he modified his AADHAR age details(Actual 56 and modified to 68) and also he shown wrong property details(Actual 15 acres but shown 3 acres) to the government authorities. 

Note : As per government GO Pension eligibility... above 65 Years  and below 3.5 acres...

I have evidences(Actual Age, Actual Properties ) in this regard. 

Can we take this case to court? If yes, tell me the procedure.  

What is the punishment for these kind of frauds?
