Aadhaar barring poor from state benefits: Activists
Citing information from RTI pleas, information activists said on Tuesday the government’s claim that technology and Aadhaar had helped weed out corruption “was without any basis”.
Unique Identity Authority of India (UIDAI) CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey, however, denied the allegations. Pandey clarified that Section 7 of the Aadhaar Act ensured that no one is “excluded” and social benefits are not denied to anyone.
