The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has stated that Aadhaar law will “pass all the test of the constitutionality” and that it is important to build the “ironwalls” to protect people’s data.
He further added that Aadhaar scheme announced by UPA Govt. was “technologically great” but it did not realise “full potential” of unique identification system.
NDA Govt. has provided legal backing to Aadhaar to realise its full potential, including the direct transfer of the benefits to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries.
SC is hearing the petition challenging the making of Aadhaar mandatory for availing the benefits under the various Social Welfare Schemes of Government.
The Next hearing is in the first week of November,2017.
