Clearing the air around Aadhaar status
Post the September 26, 2018 SC verdict relating to authentication of Aadhaar, there has been much confusion with respect to services where Aadhaar is necessary and where not.
Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for services such as bank account, telecom services, and school admissions/entrance tests.
However, it is still necessary for getting a PAN, filing I-T returns, and availing government welfare schemes.
