Well, the  Finance Minister Arun Jaitley welcomed the  Supreme Court’s verdict on Aadhaar and referred it as a historic judgement.

The BJP leader said that Aadhar had been a way through which government was saving Rs 90,000 crore every year.

Finance Minister said “It is a historic judgement and the whole concept of unique identification number that has been accepted after judicial review is an extremely welcome decision,”

Mr Jaitley added, “India can’t afford to be a tech laggard. Everyone who has been criticizing Aadhaar should understand that they cannot defy technology. Mainstream should accept changes.” While taking a dig at Congress which had been after Aadhar card for a long time.

The central ruling govt leader said that the verdict of the apex court empowers democracy. He highlighted the importance of Aadhar card and said that it was needed for proper distribution of welfare schemes and it had already helped govt in saving over Rs 90,000 crore.

He further added that the governments stand for the need of Aadhar card had been proved as apex court accepted that Aadhaar Act was a money bill.

The Apex court of India consisting of five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra announced that the Aadhar Scheme was valid but it needs some improvement in its provisions.

The top court said that Aadhar would remain mandatory for the filing of IT returns and allotment of Permanent Account Number (PAN) but not necessary to link it to a bank account and for mobile connections.

A bench of five judges cleared that Aadhaar scheme, which registers the biometric data from every citizen and provides national identity card does not violate the right to privacy and was constitutionally valid.

The Apex court’s verdict states that private firm cannot seek Aadhar information, telecom companies cannot insist for Aadhar number, bank account need not be linked with it, Aadhar card is not required for child’s admission in school.

Aadhar card will be required for filing ITRs and should be linked to PAN information
