Since Aadhaar Bill 2016 has been tagged as money bill its passage will not be stalled by the Rajya Sabha, where the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is short of a majority.The Bill intends to empower the government in providing targeted services to the intended beneficiaries by assigning them unique identity numbers, called Aadhaar Id. It will be given to every person, who has stayed in India for 182 days in the year preceding the date of application.Making Aadhaar mandatory for availing Financial and Other Subsidies will eliminate the loop holes involved and bring down its subsidy bill, which has been budgeted at Rs.2.5 trillion in 2016-17. It will also help push India towards a cashless economy.
