Aadhaar Card Issues

Centre bans sharing of Aadhaar details

  1. Context: UIDAIā€™s efforts to ensure the Aadhaar information is not misused
  2. Regulations: Agencies in possession of Aadhaar number of an individual will not be allowed to publish or post the information publicly and will have to ensure security and confidentiality
  3. These agencies have also been mandated to inform Aadhaar holders the purpose for which their details will be used
  4. The biometric information cannot be shared with anyone for any reason whatsoever
  5. Any violation of the Aadhaar Act will constitute an offence and is punishable under the Act

Discuss: What is the legal status of Right to Privacy in India? Discuss it in the context of recent Aadhaar Act. How can this issue be taken care of?
