9.39 cr Jan Dhan accounts seeded with Aadhaar: Jayant Sinha
As many as 9.39 crore Jan Dhan accounts have been seeded with Aadhaar, Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha said today.

"Government is linking bank accounts with Aadhaar to accurately transfer benefits. 9.39 crore Jan Dhan accounts have been seeded with Aadhaar cards," Sinha tweeted.

Aaadhaar, the unique identity number, is being used for transfer of LPG subsidy and some other government programmes.

There are plans to transfer fertiliser subsidy through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) using Aadhaar.

Last week, Parliament passed the Aadhaar Bill that aims at better targeting of subsidies through the Aadhaar unique identity number within hours of the Upper Housing returning it.

The government considers the Aadhaar bill as a significant instrument for implementing its Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) schemes for better targeting of beneficiaries but the Opposition attacked the government saying it was violating the Supreme Court direction that Aadhaar card cannot be made mandatory but should only be voluntary.
