The order needs to be modified after Supreme Court Judgement laying down specific ruling that Aadhaar Card will be hence forth required for PDS and Gas subsidy only.Central Govt has been further directed to give wide publicity to this decision

The issue of Pensioner!s Identity Card is presently at the cost of Pensioners.The practical difficulties relate to inclusion of New Address after issue of cards.The key area which needs special attention.

Regarding Aadhaar Card :The term !!! If Available!!! used in the Government Letter is self explanatory.Address Change is a separate issue.This has to be sorted out in consultation with the Pension Paying Agency for the purpose of authenticated copy of New Address.In the sense the existing card can still be used for the purpose of Identification on the basis of Revised Orders on the subject.
