No one to be deprived of benefits for lack of Aadhaar: Govt of India

New Delhi:

The Government of India on Tuesday said that no one will be deprived of the benefits for lack of Aadhaar. The government also reiterated that till Aadhaar number is assigned to any individual, the benefit will continue to be given based on alternate means of identification.

It also directed the departments to provide Aadhaar enrolment facilities to their beneficiaries under Regulation 12 of Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) Regulations 2016.

Considering the usefulness of Aadhaar in curbing leakages and bringing transparency in the delivery system, the Government has recently issued orders to use Aadhaar in several other welfare schemes funded from the Consolidated Fund of India.

While these orders require beneficiaries of these programs to give their Aadhaar number, it has also been ensured that no one is deprived of the benefits for want of Aadhaar.

Aadhaar has been given to more than 112 Crore people. With such wide and extensive coverage, Aadhaar has become an important tool of transformation, good governance, and empowerment of people.
