Swaraj and her Bhutanese counterpart Damcho Dorji are understood to have discussed bilateral issues between the two countries.

The decision was not mine alone and it was taken with the consent of the party. If he keeps a different opinion, then he is free to do so,” Nitish told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The govt hasn’t fixed any time-frame to complete Aadhaar-PAN linking, Jaitley said. Earlier this month the government had finalised the last date for the linking on August 31. As on June 28, there were over 25 crore PAN card holders in the country while Aadhaar has been issued to 111 crore people. The government had said linking of Aadhaar with PAN was an effective anti-evasion measure and had helped weed out bogus PAN cards.
