Aadhaar registration is required for children availing food under the centrally-sponsored National Nutrition Mission, the Lok Sabha was informed on Friday.

Union minister of State for Women and Child Development Virendra Kumar said the use of Aadhaar as identity document for delivery of services or benefits or subsidies simplifies the government delivery processes.

He said it brings in transparency and efficiency, and enables beneficiaries to get their entitlements directly in a convenient and seamless manner.

“Aadhaar obviates the need for producing multiple documents to prove one’s identity. Aadhaar would be unique identity of the beneficiaries,” he said during Question Hour.
