did not elaborate what amendments BJP was proposing Questioning the delay in bringing the billRajnath said”Why the UPA-led Congress government took so long in passing the bill and that too through the ordinance route even though it had promised to bring the Bill within 100 days of coming to power after 2004 elections” The scheme aims at providing 5 kg grain per person per month to 67 per cent of

from its earlier stand the Home Ministry has come out in full support of the Aadhaar scheme saying it will facilitate “anytime anywhere anyhow” authentication to its beneficiaries In a letter to all state governments the Home Ministry said that since one Aadhaar number is allotted only to one person it allows universal verification of one’s identity Aadhaar card also enables the deprived and needy people to access services like banking facilities “Since Aadhaar is based on the demographic and biometric information of an individual it eliminates the threat of any fraud and bogus activity “Aadhaar will provide its possessor with universal identification (It) will facilitate ‘anytime anywhere anyhow’ authentication to its beneficiaries (and) be a single source of identity verification” it said The ministry’s stand on Aadhaar is in complete reversal of the position taken by it under two predecessors of Rajnath Singh — Sushilkumar Shinde and P Chidambaram During the previous UPA regime the Home Ministry had raised concerns over the sanctity of the the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI)’s database saying uniqueness of identity was not a necessary condition for ensuring authenticity of identity or genuineness of other entries or records of Aadhaar numbers The ministry had raised concerns over supporting documents submitted by people as proof of identity and proof of address for getting an Aadhaar number In its latest letter to the state governments the Home Ministry said that the benefits of Aadhaar are many and it can be used at multiple places to prove one’s identity very easily A person’s Aadhaar number can be used while opening a bank account as it meets the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) norms of RBI The card can also be used for booking tickets online applying for passport and at many other places where there is a need to provide some proof of identity “Aadhaar will give migrants universal mobility of identity The government can now provide services and facilities to people especially in the rural areas in a more effective manner “As more and more government services are going to be linked to Aadhaar it would be of utility to have an Aadhaar card Aadhaar will hence help the poor to take the benefits or the facilities provided to them by the government which could not be accessed by (them) earlier Aadhaar will thus become the simplest way of proving one’s identity” the ministry said Aadhaar and the National Population Register (NPR) are national identity programmes of the government of India The former is being implemented by UIDAI and the latter by the Registrar General of India under the Home Ministry “Both collect biometric data covering 10 finger prints iris scan of both eyes and a photograph The identity and address of the resident are also identified during the enrolment process “Aadhaar provides a unique identity number to every resident in the country The NPR database is sent to the UIDAI for Aadhaar de-duplication and generating Unique Identity (UID) numbers” the Home Ministry said The Home Ministry’s letter also said that since a correctional home has a number of inmates who might have missed the enrolment process it would be of immense utility to offer this service to them as a welfare measure when they are released Tihar Jail in New Delhi has also started an enrolment process and received a good response The enrolment process is entirely voluntary and there is no compulsion involved as in ‘The Identification of Prisoners Act 1920’ Moreover the data collected by UIDAI is not meant for use by the correctional home and is only for the provision of an Aadhaar card to enable the re-integration of the UTP or convict upon release Necessary documentation to aid the enrolment process may be facilitated by correctional home authorities “It is hence suggested that the local UIDAI authorities should be approached for initiating the enrolment drive in all correctional homes and the prisoners should be briefed adequately as to the benefits of obtaining an Aadhaar card before the start of the drive to remove any misgivings about the process” the Home Ministry said UIDAI was established in 2009 with a mandate to generate and assign UID numbers to residents of India Under the UID scheme enrolment is done by registrars through enrolment agencies and the government provides outcome-based financial assistance to them More than 6738 crore Aadhaar numbers have been generated so far by the UIDAI since August 2010 when the first such card was generated The total expenditure incurred by UIDAI since its inception is Rs 4906 crore (as on August 31 2014) For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Press Trust of India Written by

Janpath residence for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday two days before the poll verdict His decision to skip the dinner and go “out of town” left senior leaders of the ruling party — which is staring at perhaps its worst defeat ever — fumbling for answers Embarrassed Congress leaders said Rahul was out of town but offered no reasons Almost all the party’s ministers and members of the Congress Working Committee attended the dinner Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office said Rahul met Singh on Saturday and expressed his inability to attend the dinner as he would be out of town

party’s poll campaign —from the blame for the party’s possible rout While party leaders have already started chanting the “collective responsibility” mantra Rahul’s absence on Wednesday may perhaps be an indicator of what is in store for the grand old party Those close to Rahul insist that he has high regard and respect for Singh but his public denouncement of the ordinance brought to save convicted lawmakers from disqualification had injected an element of frostiness in their relationship Singh had earlier declared that he would not seek a third term in office even if the UPA is voted back to power When asked about Rahul’s absence senior leaders and union ministers were left searching for words “I do not know why he did not attend” said Union Minister Kamal Nath Senior Congress

campaigning Rahulji is out of town for two days (He) will be back tomorrow Rahulji had already met the honourable Prime Minister on May 10 to personally thank him for his services and contribution rendered to the nation” said AICC general secretary and head of its communication department Ajay Maken But even the Congress’s allies seemed unconvinced “If you knew he was not attending the dinner
