But aadhaar would remain mandatory for people not seeking social benefits!

Own fridge, AC or car? No welfare schemes for you - Times of India

About six in every 10 households in urban areas will be eligible for assessment for identifying whether they are entitled for government's social welfare schemes, according to the recommendation of a government panel.
Those having a four-room set or four-wheeler or an air conditioner will be automatically excluded from being eligible for social benefits in urban areas. Households owning all of three items — refrigerator, washing machine and a two-wheeler — will also be automatically excluded, the Bibek Debroy Committee for implementation of the Socio Economic Survey has recommended.
The report also specifies who will be automatically included in the list of beneficiaries based on the parameters set for residential, occupational and social deprivation.
Those who are houseless or have a house with polythene wall or roof, no income or households without adult male or headed by a child will be included.
According to the report, the rest of the households will be assessed to find whether they can also be included in the list of beneficiaries.
