LS passes Aadhaar bill, rejects 5 amendments
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.
