Its main motive is to ensure that foreign funds don't dominate the political and social discourse of India." MoS MHA further said, "Experience says that many organizations attempted to hide their identity and were successful in doing that. The reason behind this is that they had no fear because their identity wasn't established completely. So Aadhaar card has been brought in to establish their identity."
