Without aadhaar also, the citizens would be able to access these three basic services. The stand was made clear recently by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India).
These three services are health services, admission to schools, and ration at fair price shops.
The UIDAI, in an official statement, said that the basic social services shouldn’t be denied for want of aadhaar number. The Aadhaar, in the official tweet also, reiterated the stand.
Often it has been seen in the media reports that some government agency allegedly denied the social service to a beneficiary, who was entitled to the same, simply because the person didn’t carry a genuine aadhaar number.
In a quest to stop this practice, the UIDAI has cleared the air saying that the agencies should refrain from denying the services under the pretext of beneficiaries not possessing the aadhaar.
