Budget 2016-17 and Aadhaar

The Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley has announced the government’s intention to introduce a bill in this Budget session of the Parliament to give statutory basis to Aadhaar

In his Budget 2016-17 Speech on February 29th 2016, he noted:

we will introduce a bill for Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services by using the Aadhar framework. The bill will be introduced in the current Budget Session of the Parliament. The Aadhar number or authentication shall not, however, confer any right of citizenship or domicile. A social security platform will be developed using Aadhar to accurately target beneficiaries. This will be a transformative piece of legislation which will benefit the poor and the vulnerable

At Indicus, we await full details of this Bill as the pending legislation has been a consistently called out by us in our policy briefs and op-eds – See

In addition for DBT he also announced the following measures:

    • We propose to introduce DBT on pilot basis for fertilizer in a few districts across the country, with a view to improving the quality of service delivery to farmers.
    • Of the 5.35 lakh Fair Price Shops in the country, automation facilities will be provided in 3 lakh Fair Price Shops by March 2017
    • The Director General of Supplies and Disposal (DGS&D) will establish a technology driven platform to facilitate procurement of goods and services by various Ministries and agencies of the Government.
