Private Companies trying to get Access to Aadhaar Data

[once data is created, it will be misused. so to protect data, dont generate data in the first place.]

Five years ago, the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional for private companies to use Aadhaar data to establish someone’s identity.

But the Union government is now proposing that private companies should be allowed access to people’s Aadhaar data, as long as such use promotes “ease of living” and enables “better access to services.”

Critics of the government’s proposed legislation say that the government’s use of vague wording in trying to expand access to Aadhaar data poses a risk to individual liberties.
