SC relaxes Aadhaar card use
New Delhi: The Supreme court on Thursday relaxed its earlier order extending use of Aadhaar card on voluntary basis in social welfare scheme MNREGA, old age pension scheme, provident fund and Prime Minister's Jan Dhan Yojana.
The apex court constitution bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu modified the order on a batch of applications by the central government and its various agencies seeking modification of August 11 order by which the use of Aadhaar card was limited for getting foodgrain and kerosene under PDS and for LPG.
