Aadhaar Card Linking in Jan Dhan Yojana Accounts

Now, here comes the trail of linking Aadhaar Card with Jan Dhan Yojana bank accounts. Banks have been asked to link Jan Dhan Yojana bank accounts to Aadhaar by our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The NDA Government has proposed to use Aadhaar as a platform in order to implement 33 central schemes by NITI Aayog by the direct benefit transfer. This would be further motivating because as per the government claims roughly 99.74 percent household have already got coverage.
Previously BJP Government has taken a stand against Aadhaar on the grounds of lacking approval from Parliament; right to privacy can be invaded or can be used to legitimize illegal immigration. Now when their own government has decided to use Aadhaar for the direct benefits transfers in all the schemes, it should resolve these issues and henceforth come up with a new legislation for the approval of parliament.  

Now with this Government disposition it is necessary to remove the stay on the Aadhaar Card from Supreme Court in order to avail the welfare schemes and to bring Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) under the administrative power of some ministry. 

It is advisable if we can put the UIDAI under IT Ministry as being the governing body of Aadhaar-based identification model who created the standard model template of attendance system for government employees. Putting both IT Ministry and Aadhaar under the same roof can synergize the government actions and planning.
