Furnishing the Aadhaar card has been made compulsory by the government for nearly 34-35 central schemes, whether it is investing in the EPF or availing mid-day meals in schools. This could soon extend to all 84 schemes so far under the Direct subsidy Benefit Transfer scheme. Aadhaar will also be required by NGOs seeking assistance for working on welfare of SCs and backward castes.
