Three bills tabled in Lok Sabha; House also takes up Motion of Thanks on President's address
New Delhi, June 24 (RNI): Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad introduced the Aadhaar and and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in the Lok Sabha today. It will replace an ordinance issued in March this year and proposes stiff penalties for violation of norms.

The Bill seeks to amend Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act 2016, the Indian Telegraph Act 1885 and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002. The Bill also proposes give children an option to exit from the biometric ID programme on attaining 18 years of age.

NK Premachandran of RSP opposed the introduction of bill saying that it violates an earlier Supreme Court judgment and allows private entities to store. Allaying concerns, Mr Prasad said, Aadhaar is in national interest and it does not violate privacy.

He said, he wants to reassure that there is no mandatory compliance because SIM cards can be taken with or without Aadhaar. The bill makes provision for allowing voluntary use of Aadhaar as an identity proof for opening bank accounts and getting mobile phone connection.

The Lok Sabha has taken up the discussion on Motion of Thanks to the President Ram Nath Kovind’s address to the joint sitting of both the Houses of the Parliament.

Moving the motion, Minister of State for Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Pratap Chandra Sarangi highlighted the success of several development initiatives and schemes by the Narendra Modi led government.

He highlighted the positive atmosphere created by the Modi Government by introducing the Direct Benefit Transfer removing middle men in every scheme. He said the people across the country have reposed the faith and given huge mandate Modi government.

BJP MP Heena Gavit seconded the motion moved by Pratap Chandra Sarangi. Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary initiated the discussion on the Motion.
