Cabinet approves Aadhaar Ordinance to allow its use as ID proof for bank accounts, SIM connection
Updated : February 28, 2019 11:50 PM IST
The Ordinance was necessitated as a bill, passed by the Lok Sabha on January 4 but pending in the Rajya Sabha, would have lapsed with the dissolution of the current Lok Sabha.
The Ordinance will now give the effect to the changes in the Aadhaar Act such as giving a child an option to exit from the biometric ID programme on attaining 18 years of age.
