Central government withdraws advisory not to share photocopy of Aadhar card

The ministry, in its advisory, had said, “Only those entities that have obtained user license from UIDAI can use Aadhaar to establish the identity of an individual. Copy of Aadhaar card to unlicensed entities like hotels and film halls.” There is no right to collect or retain the same. This is an offense under the Aadhar Act 2016.
