As the Oppositions raised concerns, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asserted that the proposed amendment is in compliance with the Supreme Court judgement and that there will be no infringement of privacy.
Regarding privacy issue, he said privacy is "not being invaded at all" from these amendments. The parallel authentication norms are there to safeguard privacy issues, he added.
The Supreme Court had struck down Section 57 of the Aadhaar Act that made seeding of the biometric ID with SIMs and bank accounts mandatory, saying it had no legal backing.
