Aadhaar for anganwadi staff

Aadhaar for anganwadi staff

Aadhaar is casting its web wider with the government now making the unique identification number mandatory for anganwadi workers for drawing their honorarium.

The workers, who are government’s frontline warriors in fighting malnutrition and child hunger, will face hurdles from April if they are not Aadhaar enrolled.

Also, women and children who are availing supplementary nutrition programme under the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) also need to have Aadhaar by April 2018.

Despite objections from a section of activists and concerns raised over security of bio-metrics collected, the government is continuing with extending the Aadhaar to PDS and cooking gas.
