Aadhaar not liable for denial of benefits, says UIDAI chief

UIDAI chief argues that the Aadhaar Act includes provisions for a beneficiary to receive their benefits even if they do not currently have an Aadhaar number or face authentication problems. He claims that notifications emphasising this fact have been issued to relevant organizations and says those who still deny beneficiaries their entitlements are violating the law and should be held accountable.
