Abstract

Aadhaar card is an innovative step taken by the Government of India to facilitate smooth functioning of government welfare programs among the needy citizens of this country. This chapter deals about the Aadhaar Project of the Central Government, its features, its impact on the welfare schemes of government, etc. Second, it also deals with the challenges and loopholes associated with the Aadhaar scheme which eventually led to the case of Justice K. S. Puttaswamy and Another v. Union of India [Writ Petition (Civil) No. 494 of 2012]. At last, the chapter deals with the potential challenges which the Aadhaar scheme may face even after it has been declared constitutional by the Apex Court in the case of Justice K. S. Puttaswamy and Another v. Union of India [Writ Petition (Civil) No. 494 of 2012].
