NEW DELHI: The Lok Sabha passed the Aad­haar bill a se­cond time on Wed­nes­day evening, re­ject­ing five amend­ments made less than an hour ear­lier by the Ra­jya Sabha that un­der­scored its reser­va­tions about pro­vi­sions in the pro­posed leg­is­la­tion.

The Lok Sabha’s dis­ap­proval com­pletes the leg­isla­tive process for en­act­ing the bill to en­sure tar­geted de­liv­ery of sub­si­dies through the Aad­haar plat­form. The Lower House has the priv­i­lege to re­ject the Ra­jya Sabha’s amend­ments since the Aad­haar (Tar­geted De­liv­ery of Fi­nan­cial and Other Sub­si­dies, Ben­e­fits and Ser­vices) Bill, 2016, was treated as a money bill.
