Now you can use SIM card or you can use the passport, ration card, or any other valid documents right instead of Aadhar card to open an account in the bank. No organization can put pressure on you for the use of Aadhaar card.
The central government has taken an important decision regarding the inevitability of Aadhar card. Now it is not necessary to give Aadhaar card to open an account in the bank or to take a SIM card, but will depend entirely on your wishes. As a proof of identification and address, banks and telecom companies may have to pay a fine of up to Rs one crore for making pressure on the Aadhaar card.
Not only this, the employees of the companies who do so can be punished for 3 to 10 years. In this way, now you can use a passport, ration card or any other valid document right instead of the Aadhar card to get a SIM card or open an account in the bank. No organization can put pressure on you for the use of Aadhaar card.
The government has incorporated this rule by amending the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and Indian Telegraph Act. On Monday, the central cabinet approved the amendment. Government sources say that this decision has been taken keeping in view the recent order of the Supreme Court. The apex court had said that Unique ID can only be used for Welfare schemes.
50 lakh fine, 10 years sentence on data misuse(SIM card)
According to the amendments made in the law, if an institution with a base authentication is found responsible for data leaks then fine up to Rs 50 lakh and a sentence of up to 10 years can be imposed. These amendments are yet to get Parliament’s approval. However, such information can be given in the interest of the nation.
Right on the basis
Due to this decision of the central government, you will no longer have the obligation to open accounts in banks and give the basis for getting a SIM card. So far, the companies and banks were telling it compulsory. In this way, you have got the right on the basis that if you want, give it information or you do not.
