Now Aadhar Card is Not Mandatory for Using Government Services, Says Government

Central Government today has come up with some clarity on the usage of Aadhar Card. Since last few months, confusion is building up upon the usage of Aadhar card for accessing government benefits and subsidies. Now, Government has clarified that Aadhar card is not mandatory to gain access to Government services.

In reply to a question in Lok Sabha, State for IT and Electronics Minister P Chaudhary informed that Aadhar Card is now optional for Indian citizens and lacking of Aadhar card cannot be a basis for rejecting any benefits or subsidies for anyone.

Minister Chaudhary said, “Section 7 of the Aadhar Act offers that if an Aadhar number is not assigned to an individual, the person will be offered alternate and viable means of identification for the delivery of subsidy, benefit or service.”

On October 15, 2015, Supreme Court had ordered that Aadhar card usage should not be extended other than kerosene, LPG subsidy and PDS scheme. Later, it was extended to include MGNREGS, National Social Assistance Programme Pensions, Jan Dhan Yojana accounts and (EPFO) Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation.

However in this year September, confusions had raised on the usage of Aadhar. The government passed the Aadhar Bill as a money bill to give it a legal backing. After this, Government got sufficient control to force Aadhar on every Indian citizen and Government scheme.

Within a few days, Supreme Court had to interfere, and re-state that Aadhar is only a voluntary form of identification and nothing more.

Recently, Aadhar card becomes a mandate for booking railway tickets in IRCTC, to start a new business and even to buy smartphone handsets Aadhar is required.

The Indian handset makers have asked the government to allow the customers to buy products with old 500 and 1000 rupee notes for a month.

The device that is sold can be traced via International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI number) to avoid the misuse. Since the Aadhar card is unique and IMEI number is also unique which would ensure 100 percent traceability and significantly lower the abuse.

The Indian Cellular Association said in a letter to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, “This will also provide a trigger for further purchase of smartphones and feature phones to transition to digital payment platforms. In turn, this will reduce the pressure on cash transactions.”

At present, all the companies are looking at the market conditions carefully, and mobile companies like Intex and Micromax has said that “Earlier this week that if liquidity crunch continues, they would have to consider lowering local production to avoid inventory pile-ups”.

The government has recently announced the order of Rs. 500 notes can be used for a prepaid mobile recharge which is up to Rs. 500 per head till the last date of 15th December 2016.
