If not Aadhaar, a consent form will get parents ration for their children | IndiaToday
A 'consent form' will now allow parents who have not yet got their Aadhaar cards made to take ration for their children under Poshan Abhiyaan. The government has stressed on making Aadhaar mandatory for people to avail ration from Anganwadis, despite constitutional validity of Aadhaar being currently discussed in the Supreme Court.
However, the women and child development ministry officials have figured out a middle path. According to the new measures, now parents and children who will get their Aadhaar cards made will have to sign a consent form allowing the Anganwadis and the district collector to use their information.
After the ruling by SC, an undertaking will be signed by parents wanting to avail ration - by agreeing that their information on other identity proofs will be used and shared by the government.
