The state government may soon enact their own “State Aadhaar Act”, as the central government has made a proposal for the same. Though a five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court is set to hear challenges to the Aadhaar Act, the Centre put up the idea at the national conference of state chief secretaries, organised by governments think-tank NITI Aayog last week. However, the states need to follow the lines of the central Act passed by Parliament last year for enacting their separate Aadhaar Act, reports The Indian Express. The issue was emphasised by AR Sihag, Secretary (Coordination and Public Grievances) in the Cabinet Secretariat while giving the presentation on the topic of “effective implementation of DBT (direct benefit transfer) in states”. “Enactment of State Aadhaar Act” was one of the “interventions requested” by the Cabinet secretariat, said the report.

The Aadhaar Act of the Centre makes Aadhaar mandatory for every welfare subsidy or benefit given to any state from fully-funded or centrally-sponsored schemes in which states share a part of the fiscal burden. The Act clearly mentions that for any scheme for which the expenditure is borne fully or shared partially by the Consolidated Fund of India, there should be verification through Aadhaar. But besides these schemes, some states have their own subsidies or benefit schemes that are funded by the state exchequer like Nitish Kumar led-Bihar government’s bicycle scheme for girls or previous Uttar Pradesh government’s laptop scheme started by the then Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. Such schemes do not fall under central Aadhaar Act. However, the proposed State Aadhaar Act could provide the legal basis for making it mandatory for state-funded welfare schemes too, said the report.

But as the proposal suggested by the Cabinet Secretariat seems tricky as it may affect the freedom of the state governments to set up a mechanism for expenditure from the state exchequer as per the report, it is yet to see whether it will come into effect or not.

    When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish. Jai Hind. 1. 25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4. AADHAAR bio-metrics can be stolen, printed and used for #AADHAAR pay 5. #AADHAAR does not work for NRIs, people outside India 6. AADHAR can not be generated if a person's fingerprint matches with someone else's with 60 percentage probability. 7. Rogue government can deactivate your #AADHAAR blocking ur gas, electricity, mobile, bank account 8. AADHAAR works for millions of illegals staying in India 9. AADHAAR is blocking subsidies for millions of legitimate people 10. Take 10 lakh insurance for each #AADHAAR failure case/delete

      Aadhaar product is SEVEN years old, authentication still fails for "Half Billion" indians, millions of honest tax payers are unable to link aadhaar with PAN, UAN, etc. #AADHAAR's right place is in dust bin, it has wasted billions of dollars of tax payers money. When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish. Jai Hind. 1. 25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4.

        Dear UIDAI, Please take 1 crore insurance for each #AADHAAR bio-metrics, one lakh insurance for each #AADHAAR authentication failure or else delete #AADHAAR bio-metrics from your database, archive, third party storages and deactivate #AADHAAR. Jai Hind.

          As per aadhaar act, if someone steals your fingerprint and use it to clean your bank account, sell your properties, UIDAI will fine that guy 3 lakh INR, so criminals get your property, bank balance, UIDAI gets 3 lakh commission and you the victim of iden y theft gets NOTHING and land in footpath. Destroy #AADHAAR before it destroys you, Jai Hind.
