Rajya Sabha returns Aadhaar bill with amendments

New Delhi, March 16 (IANS) The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday returned the Aadhaar bill to the lower house with four amendments, including ensuring that it remains voluntary.

The amendments are in clauses 3, 7, 33 and 57 of the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Bill, 2016.

The Rajya Sabha had a limited role in passage of a money bill, as the Aadhaar bill has been designated, and can only suggest amendments, which can be accepted or rejected by Lok Sabha.

In case amendments are recommended, the bill will remain pending unless the process is completed in Lok Sabha.

The bill now has to go the Lok Sabha again, where the amendments would be either accepted or defeated.
