Disability rights groups disappointed over Aadhaar verdict

NEW DELHI: Disability rights groups on Wednesday expressed disappointment over the Supreme Court verdict which upheld the constitutional validity of Aadhaar, as they claimed that thousands of  disabled persons would now be denied pensions and other social security schemes. 
In a verdict with far reaching impact, the apex court upheld the constitutional validity of Aadhaar but limited the scope of the controversial biometric identity project, ruling that it is not mandatory for bank accounts, mobile connections or school admissions.
