Bill proposing voluntary use of Aadhaar as ID proof tabled in Lok Sabha
Updated : June 25, 2019 09:50 AM IST
The Bill will amend the Aadhaar Act 2016 and replace an ordinance issued in March. It also proposes stiff penalties for violation of norms.
Opposing the bill, RSP MP NK Premchandaran said it was a "grave violation" of the Supreme Court's judgement on Aaadhar. He claimed private entities can get hold of Aadhaar data and violate fundamental rights especially the Right of Privacy.
