The Indian Unique Identification Authority (UIDAI)

The Indian Unique Identification Authority (UIDAI), which issued the Aadhaar number, says that even if the Aadhaar number is not available, the benefits of the necessary services can not be denied. This includes essential services like getting ration, admission in schools and availing health services under public distribution system.

In a statement, UIDAI has asked government departments and state governments to 'ensure that the actual beneficiaries of essential services and benefits should not be refused to take advantage of them if they do not have Aadhaar numbers. Whether it includes the necessary requirements like getting ration under public distribution system, getting admission in schools, hospital admission, and taking advantage of health services. "

According to the statement, in this regard, its circular issued by UIDAI on October 24, 2017 should be followed and it should be ensured that in the absence of the base, the real beneficiary is not deprived of its benefits. UIDAI has said that it has taken such reports seriously, in which it has been said that due to absence of Aadhaar card, the hospital was deprived of essential services like recruitment or treatment.
