Aadhaar empowers marginalised sections of the society and gives them identity, which outweighs the harm, Supreme Court said, pronouncing the national identity card "constitutionally valid" in response to petitions raising violation of privacy. "One can't throw the baby out with the bathwater," said the judges, which asserted that private parties cannot seek Aadhaar data. Significantly, the court, in a majority verdict, said Aadhaar is not compulsory for school admission. "No child shall be denied benefits for the want of Aadhaar," the judges said.
