Aadhaar, GST and Demonetization helped in Financial Inclusion: Arun Jaitely

Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitely has said that the starting and the execution of Adhaar, demonetization, and GST have played a very important role in making financial inclusion in India. He also added that the minor glitches of GST will also be addressed by the GST council.

At the conclave meeting on the Financial Inclusion, he also talks about 30 crore families have been given bank accounts since the initiative was launched in September 2014. He said the country’s biggest ever bank account opening drive, Jan Dhan Yojana, was initiated as a platform for financial inclusion.

He added that the Aadhaar legislation will stand the test of constitutionality of using the unique identification number for giving government benefits.  

Jaitley said,  "Aadhaar was an evolving idea under the previous United Progressive Alliance regime. When National Democratic Alliance came to power, it gave the necessary legislative backing to make it purposeful, he noted."
