Yes, since this is a beneficiary oriented scheme, in terms of extant guidelines, the Aadhaar number of the beneficiary has to be mandatorily provided. In case Adhaar number is not available, then in such case the application has to provide the Aadhar enrolment number to avail of the benefit under the scheme. However, only for transfer of first installment relaxation has been given for transfer of benefit to beneficiaries on basis of alternate documents for identification. However subsequent installments will be transferred only where States/UTs where Aadhar number is not available.
In cases of beneficiaries in States of Assam, Meghalaya, J&K where Aadhaar number has not been issued to most of the citizens, Aadhaar number shall be collected for those beneficiaries where it is available and for others alternate prescribed documents can be collected for identity verification purposes by the States/UT Governments
