Re: [IAC#RG] CBSE rolls back Aadhar for IIT-JEE Mains exam on IAC complaint

Dear Sir/ Madam,
   Since I read your mails regarding Aadhar not being mandatory, I wish to bring some issues to your notice and seek your opinion for any possible action.
       I work in Thane District of Maharashtra--mainly in the tribal area of Murbad and Shahapur blocks.  Under Janani Suraksha Yojana as part of National Health Mission, tribal women are supposed to get Rs.700/- on delivery for first 2 live births as financial help for the mother.  From last 6 months, this guaranteed benefit is denied to hundreds of tribal women because they do not have Aadhar Card. Even the banks are not opening their accounts for the same reason.
       Similarly, the online wage payment system is made in such a way that a labourer who works under MGNREGA can not be paid his/her wages if he/she does not have Aadhar Card.
      How can the State /Central Government make Aadhar mandatory for these schemes if Supreme Court directs otherwise?

Dear IAC-ians

It appears (final reply still awaited) that CBSE has rolled back the clause that Aadhar is mandatory for students appearing in IIT-JEE Main exam after IAC protested and enclosed copy of the SC judgment in in WP(C) 686/2016 titled as ALL BENGAL MINORITY STUDENTS COUNCIL versus UNION OF INDIA dt. 14.09.2016

CPIO of CBSE has today replied in RTI they have notified some clarifications concerning alternative methods to Aadhar for students to sit for the JEE Mains exam. The actual order itself is coming by post.

Our online RTI no. is CBSED/R/2016/51816, and CPIO's reply (attached) can also accessed from there.
