    In view to the compulsion of providing aadhar card for attendance, i personally feel unless the Supreme Court dsnt give a clear verdict on the use and compulsion of afhar card it should not be made mandatory. After all aafhar card was first aimed with voluntarily consent. I personally feel that Govt should wait for the verdict n then go ahead with its plans.
