No Aadhaar, no sops after June 30: Centre to SC

NEW DELHI: The Center stood before the Supreme Court mandatory registration Aadhaar on June 30 and said that those who do not have the UID out of time would not be entitled to benefits derived from social protection schemes.
He said that only those who could not register under Aadhaar before June 30 due to lack of registration services in their regions are still to get benefits, but not to those who had the opportunity and opportunity to register, but did not.
“It should be noted that the notification requires people to register for Aadhaar before June 30, 2017, which are provided in the notice that if people can not register in Aadhaar before June 30 due to lack of facilities In neighboring areas, who can register their Aadhaar registration application before the competent authorities give their contact information so that, as these registration offices are in the region, they can be included in Aadhar and for these persons , Benefits remain seated, even if they have not enrolled in Aadhaar by June 30, 2017, “the Center said in an affidavit.
He asked the SC not to decide on the maintenance of a mandatory registration for Aadhaar June 30, according to which 95% of the population is already included in the project and that the link between Aadhaar and social assistance plans has saved the government Rs 49,560 crores over the last two years.
The Center’s sworn statement costs responded to the new requests by Shantha Sinha and others who requested to file the notice under Article 7 of the Aadhar Act in 2016. They alleged that many people were not included in Aadhaar and benefits are denied Under social systems if they have not registered before 30 June

If Article 7 of the notice has been suspended by the SC “, this would be tantamount to remaining in the enabling provision that allows the government to insist on Aadhaar for the delivery of the benefits and payment services of the Indian Consolidated Fund and, In this case, irreparable damage would be caused to a large number of vulnerable classes of Indians depend on subsidies and benefits to reach them because of their unique Aadhaar identification, “he said.

The petitioners expressed fear that Aadhaar’s biometric data were dangerous and could allow the government to monitor citizens’ activities in violation of their right to privacy. The Center said. “All premises of the petitioner’s argument that the data are for the purpose of surveillance is completely unfounded and unfounded By design, UIDAI’s technology architecture even excludes the possibility of finding people to monitor their activities, including purpose Of which they can use Aadhaar. “
