When I opposed Aadhaar in 2010 , I was called a BJP stooge. In 2016 I am still opposing Aadhaar for the same reasons and I am told I am a Congress die hard. No one wants to see why I oppose Aadhaar as it is too difficult. Plus Aadhaar is FREE so why not get one ? Ram Krishnaswamy

“The invasion of privacy is of no consequence because privacy is not a fundamental right and has no meaning under Article 21. The right to privacy is not a guaranteed under the constitution, because privacy is not a fundamental right.” Article 21 of the Indian constitution refers to the right to life and liberty -Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi

“There is merit in the complaints. You are unwittingly allowing snooping, harassment and commercial exploitation. The information about an individual obtained by the UIDAI while issuing an Aadhaar card shall not be used for any other purpose, save as above, except as may be directed by a court for the purpose of criminal investigation.” -A three judge bench headed by Justice J Chelameswar said in an interim order.

Legal scholar Usha Ramanathan describes UID as an inverse of sunshine laws like the Right to Information. While the RTI makes the state transparent to the citizen, the UID does the inverse: it makes the citizen transparent to the state, she says.

Good idea gone bad
I have written earlier that UID/Aadhaar was a poorly designed, unreliable and expensive solution to the really good idea of providing national identification for over a billion Indians. My petition contends that UID in its current form violates the right to privacy of a citizen, guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. This is because sensitive biometric and demographic information of citizens are with enrolment agencies, registrars and sub-registrars who have no legal liability for any misuse of this data. This petition has opened up the larger discussion on privacy rights for Indians. The current Article 21 interpretation by the Supreme Court was done decades ago, before the advent of internet and today’s technology and all the new privacy challenges that have arisen as a consequence.

“What is Aadhaar? There is enormous confusion. That Aadhaar will identify people who are entitled for subsidy. No. Aadhaar doesn’t determine who is eligible and who isn’t,” Jairam Ramesh

But Aadhaar has been mythologised during the previous government by its creators into some technology super force that will transform governance in a miraculous manner. I even read an article recently that compared Aadhaar to some revolution and quoted a 1930s historian, Will Durant. Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Rajya Sabha MP


Here is what the Parliament Standing Committee on Finance, which examined the draft N I A Bill said.

1. There is no feasibility study of the project]

2. The project was approved in haste

3. The system has far-reaching consequences for national security

4. The project is directionless with no clarity of purpose

5. It is built on unreliable and untested technology

6. The exercise becomes futile in case the project does not continue beyond the present number of 200 million enrolments

7. There is lack of coordination and difference of views between various departments and ministries of government on the project


What was said before the elections:

NPR & UID aiding Aliens – Narendra Modi

"I don't agree to Nandan Nilekeni and his madcap (UID) scheme which he is trying to promote," Senior BJP Leader Yashwant Sinha, Sept 2012

"All we have to show for the hundreds of thousands of crore spent on Aadhar is a Congress ticket for Nilekani" Yashwant Sinha.(27/02/2014)

TV Mohandas Pai, former chief financial officer and head of human resources, tweeted: "selling his soul for power; made his money in the company wedded to meritocracy." Money Life Article

Nilekani’s reporting structure is unprecedented in history; he reports directly to the Prime Minister, thus bypassing all checks and balances in government - Home Minister Chidambaram

To refer to Aadhaar as an anti corruption tool despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary is mystifying. That it is now officially a Rs.50,000 Crores solution searching for an explanation is also without any doubt. -- Statement by Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP & Member, Standing Committee on Finance

Finance minister P Chidambaram’s statement, in an exit interview to this newspaper, that Aadhaar needs to be re-thought completely is probably the last nail in its coffin. :-) Financial Express

The Rural Development Ministry headed by Jairam Ramesh created a road Block and refused to make Aadhaar mandatory for making wage payment to people enrolled under the world’s largest social security scheme NRGA unless all residents are covered.

10848 - Data is the new oil, Jio stands for affordability: Mukesh Ambani - Indian Express

By IANS  |   Published: 15th February 2017 07:55 PM  |

MUMBAI: Reliance Industries Ltd Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani on Wednesday said the company's newly-launched telecom venture Reliance Jio stands for affordability and data is the new oil in the industry.

"Jio was conceived at a time when the world was fast digitising. What the Jio platform offers is partner with the next generation to solve problems for India to make sure our industries are more productive," Ambani said.

"To my mind, data is the new natural resource. In that sense, India is blessed with 1.3 billion people, for it to have real value it has to be processed into intelligence. Data is the new oil and its benefit is immense to society. India with its young population will have a competitive advantage," he added.

He was speaking at an interactive session at the Nasscom India Leadership Forum 2017 here.

Reliance Jio has disrupted the Indian telecom industry with its free data offer till March.

"With the investment in Jio and concurrent action spurred in the industry, India can be among the top 10 in broadband access. Data is the oxygen of this digital life and no Indian should have this in scarcity," he added.

Ambani said human race is at the doorstep of fourth industrial revolution of convergence of digital and biological science. "At the foundation of fourth industrial revolution is connectivity and data, the convergence of all the sciences has been brought about."

Ambani said Aadhaar has enabled Reliance Jio to have millions of customers within few months.

Talking about digital payments, he said: "After the Aadhaar, you consider the digital payments system that is fast developing. Earlier, loans and financial resources were only available to a few people at high value. Now, I see that changing on the basis of technology. Now based on data, you can get a loan on your mobile phone."

"We are at the doorsteps of change in adapting technology to change the lives of people."

"In this new world in terms of digitisation it is important to be open. Whatever the world trends may be, we have to make sure we are always open, always connected. The goal of improving the lives of hundreds of millions of people is the opportunity that we have," he added.

Talking about digitisation, Ambani said: "We have opportunity to adapt artificial intelligence, natural language processing, drones in terms of our logistics. Opportunities are immense. Now we have infrastructure to do it in our own market and make India one of the biggest software markets"of the world."

Counselling a five-point tip-sheet for budding entrepreneurs and potential start-up founders, Ambani said it is essential to find a passion for solving a problem without focusing primarily on financial returns.

"As an entrepreneur, you find a solution to the problem you are passionate about. It is not solving problems but first finding problems and then solving it. Financial results are actually a by-product. Failures are normal. Learn from them.

"Two non-negotiables for me is treat investors' money even more carefully than your own money. You cannot do anything without the right team, align it passionately to your own mission. An entrepreneur is always optimist," he added.

During the Nasscom India Leadership Forum 2017 on Wednesday Reliance Industries Ltd Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani said the company's newly-launched telecom venture Reliance Jio has been able to acquire a million customers a day because of Aadhaar.

They have crossed 100 million customer base since it launched in September 2016. 

"When we started Jio we set a target of 100 million customers in shortest time. Even we didn't imagine we will do it in months. Aadhaar enabled us to acquire a million customers a day, which is unheard of in the industry," Ambani said.

However, the data sharing between the Central government and Reliance-Jio Private Limited has been contested in the Kerala High Court in December.

Jio sim can be activated within hours after the sim cards are authenticated with Aadhaar numbers. The company doesn't mention for how long the information would be retained.
The Kerala High Court had sent notices to the Central government, chairman of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), and Reliance-Jio Private Limited on a public interest writ petition filed by  Sunil TG, general secretary of Kerala Pradesh Youth Congress, according to the Hindu. 
According to the petition, as per the Aadhaar Act, all data collected by Aadhaar authority is meant to be protected in a permanent locking manner and can only be accessed by biometric authentication. 

However, Reliance Jio Private Limited is not the only company to use the eKYC process. Airtel and Vodafone are also listed as eKYC User Agency under UIDAI, allowing them to validate individual customer using biometrics and Aadhaar details. The process is believed to be faster, foolproof and will help avoid the misuse of sim cards. 

Here's a list of all eKYC User Agencies under UIDAI. However, the permission granted by the UIDAI and the Centre is in violation of the Adhaar (Target Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, benefits and Services) Act, 2016. 

The petitioner had sought a directive to the Cabinet Secretary and chairman of the UIDAI to show cause the authorising department for use of Aadhaar information by private companies. The petition also sought cancellation of permission given to Reliance-Jio Private Limited for authentication of data using Aadhaar.

10846 - UIDAI CEO: We’ll ask SC to test Aadhaar Act on standard of privacy as a fundamental right - Medianama

By Nikhil Pahwa ( @nixxin , +NikhilPahwa ) on February 16, 2017

Rajesh Jain (Founder, Netcore) and Ajay Bhushan Pandey (CEO UIDAI)

“I would urge all of you, please read the Aadhaar act and the regulations,” UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey said at the India Digital Summit last week, adding “What the underlying theme is that we have presumed that privacy is…whether privacy is a fundamental right or not is a question which will be answered by the Supreme Court, finally.” 

Pandey was responding to a question from MediaNama, which pointed out the Union of India’s statement in the Supreme Court that ‘Violation of privacy doesn’t mean anything because privacy is not a guaranteed right’, and asked about privacy protections in the law to prevent mass surveillance of citizens.

Pandey added that “We’ve presumed that the privacy is almost like a fundamental right. And if a fundamental right has to be protected, what protection measures should be there? So, whenever the hearing takes place, we are going to take this stand in the Supreme Court, saying that whether the privacy is a fundamental right or not doesn’t concern only Aadhaar, it concerns many other aspects. But so far as Aadhaar is concerned, please test the Aadhaar act on that standard, saying that presume that Privacy is a fundamental right, and whether whatever Aadhaar is doing meets that fundamental right criteria or not. And we’re very sure.”

“Now the Aadhaar act has been passed, it is almost one year, and the way we’re doing it, all other apprehensions that government will become big brother, government will aggregate big data and all kinds of things, data will be misused, private companies will misuse it, all these things, you know all these things today, you know I wouldn’t say there are no complaints, but genuinely there are no specific instances”, and “Nor have such complaints have been brought to the notice of the court.”

Please note that Renuka Sane (visiting fellow at the IDFC Institute, Mumbai) and Vrinda Bhandari (Advocate at the Delhi High Court) had detailed out earlier issues related to privacy in the Aadhaar Act, saying that the Aadhaar Act and the IT Act are “important failures in enshrining privacy.” Read their detailed analysis here. Importantly, they also point out that there is a possibility of a conflict of Internet “since it may be in UIDAI’s interest to cover up breaches of privacy. Without the UIDAI’s proactive action, an individual Aadhaar number holder is left without remedy.”*

The other question we asked Pandey was about the failure rate, and “what recourse do people who have been denied their benefits, have? This concern about fingerprints was also raised by the parliamentary standing committee, under Yashwant Sinha

To this, Pandey said that “Ideally there should be no failure rate. But what is happening is that we’re seeing a failure rate of 92-98%…I mean success rate. What is that 8% or 2%? That is somebody who could not get authenticated.”

“Sometimes people are very innovative,” he added. “They try to see if their fingerprint works or not (for someone elses Aadhaar number). I’m not saying that that is the only reason. 

Sometimes, you know, some of the fingerprints are worn out. In that case, we have the facility that you can authenticate any of the fingerprints. 10 fingerprints or the iris. Using this you can reach almost near 100%. The telecom companies that have started given SIMs (SIM cards for mobile numbers) using this, their success rate is 98%. Whereas, the business correspondents, who go to the villages and actually hand out cash, have a success rate of 92%. They have to improve that.”

Frankly, even 2% and 8% failure rates are significantly large numbers when you consider a population of 1.2 billion on Aadhaar: it is real people who are getting impacted, and someone denied their rights – rations are critical for many – shouldn’t be seen as just a percentage point. That is one of the problems with the proponents of Aadhaar (and digital payments): a lack of empathy, and thinking of technology as the be-all and end-all of India’s problems.

10844 Privacy advocate notes Aadhaar records are not verified - Biometric Update

Privacy advocate notes Aadhaar records are not verified

February 14, 2017 - 
An Indian MP has claimed that none of the records contained within the Aadhaar database have been verified, according to a report recently published by Mashable.
Independent Member of Parliament and privacy advocate, Rajeev Chandrasekhar told Mashable India: “There are two fundamental flaws in Aadhaar: it is poorly designed, and it is being poorly verified. Aadhaar isn’t foolproof, and this has resulted in fake data get into the system. This in turn opens new gateways for money launderers.”
Chandrasekhar also told Mashable that “there is no firm legislation to safeguard the privacy and rights of the billion people who have enrolled into the system. There’s little a person whose Aadhaar data has been compromised could do.”
“Citizens who have voluntarily given their data to Aadhaar authority, as of result of this, are at risk,” he added.
Aadhaar is the 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Indian government to every individual resident of India. The Aadhaar project aims to provide a single, unique identifier which captures all the demographic and biometric details of every Indian resident. Currently, Aadhaar has issued over 900 million Aadhaar numbers. Over one billion people have now been enrolled for the project, which initially was only used for the provision of social services. The Indian government’s next intention is to extend Aadhaar to the majority of consumer financial transactions.
Recently, BiometricUpdate.com reported however that the Indian public is concerned about new fingerprint payment schemes that leverage Aadhaar, and that the prospect of using fingerprint authentication for everyday payments has raised concerns at theCentre for Internet and Society.
Sunil Abraham, executive director of the centre, told Mashable: “Aadhaar is remote, covert, and non-consensual.” He also added that Aadhaar doesn’t use basic principles of cryptography, and that much of its security is not known.
Other prominent critics, who include lawyer Rahul Narayan, an advocate who has argued in front of the Supreme Court of India, also told Mashable that “there’s no concrete regulation in place” that governs Aahaar.
