Delhi HC issued notice to the central government on a petition challenging the implementation of the unique identification or "Aadhar" cards scheme.
Unique Identification Authority of India targets to enrol another 40 crore in the next couple of years.
The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance asked govt to redraft the
UID Authority Bill, stating it was not
acceptable in its present form.
As many 90 lakh people have been
issued Unique Identification numbers under the Aadhar project so far, Nandan M Nilekani said.
Former president APJ Abdul Kalam has said the Unique Identification (UID) Scheme, being undertaken by the government, can help in fighting corruption
in public services delivery.
