In an attempt to put up a face of robust and state of the art digital system for disposal of services that ensures cost-savings, denying services to the citizens who are not enrolled in an evasive set up of aadhar is one way to compromising individuals rights. Cancelling eligible beneficiaries and calling is savings is outrageous. Bursting this bubble of a greater good by putting the civil liberties at risk is highly derisive. Aadhar fall shorts on multiple fronts of privacy and security. data can be stolen and misused in a multitude of ways and a victim whose identity gets compromised can't file a complaint against the UIDAI with a looming threat of mass surveillance.
Rhe significant amount of powers that lies with UIDAI is terrifying. It holds the power to wipe the details of aadhar card holder which ultimately means depriving the citizens of any services. Already, we are seeing huge numbers of people facing problems in biometric authentication. The government should take these points into consideration before rolling out One ID for everything could very well mean a strong government for a weak nation. We definitely don't want it for us.
How do I act against aadhar?Taking forward the voice of citizens, we at Not just an opinion asked our law friends to help us prepare a disposition that outlines the concerns of citizens regarding the violations of the orders of Apex court by the government and how it can distress the democratic set up of India by it's ever expanding list of services. It's time to draft your member parliaments to work. Draft your MP and please inform your friends to do the same so the campaign of #IndiaAgainstAadhar can gain further momentum.
Subject: Mandatory Use of UID-Aadhaar in Violation of Orders of the Supreme Court and Lacunae in Aadhaar (Enrolment and Update) Regulations, 2016.
