As reported in moneylife.in on 29 July 2013:

Aadhaar not mandatory for LPG subsidy, school admission - Moneylife

 

Aadhaar not mandatory for LPG subsidy, school admission

 

As per the answer provided in the Lok Sabha by Rajiv Shukla, Aadhaar is not mandatory to avail subsidy for LPG cylinders, admission to private aided schools and opening a saving bank account

 

The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government and the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) have been complicit in the coercion and bullying that is now part of the UID enrolment process, and its silent acquiescence while people are threatened with exclusion from services and benefits if they have not enrolled. While minister for petroleum Veerappa Moily has been saying that all consumers of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will have to Aadhaar numbers to receive subsidy, the union government itself has admitted that it is not mandatory.

 

Replying to an un-starred question on 8 May 2013, Rajiv Shukla, minister of state for parliamentary affairs and planning said, "Aadhaar card is not mandatory to avail subsidized facilities being offered by the Government like LPG cylinders, admission in private aided schools, opening a savings account etc."

 

Rudramadhab Ray, a member of Paliament from Kandhamal constituency from Odisha, had asked the question.
