Aadhaar card mandatory for licence to set up roadside bunk shops: Madras HC

Meera Emmanuel January 13 2018

In an order passed recently, Justice S Vaidyanathan of the Madras High Court directed that those who apply for licences to set up bunk shops by roadsides must furnish a copy of their Aadhaar card to the concerned authorities.

A common order was passed last December in a batch of writ petitions filed by a number of persons claiming to have been forced to run from pillar to post to obtain licences for their bunk shops in various areas.
