Delhi police has registered the first case under violation of Aadhaar Act 2016 against a man for allegedly spreading rumours on various social networking sites that the Aadhaar ecosystem is vulnerable.
As per the complaint by UIDAI assistant director general Yashwant Kumar, Sameer Kochhar wrote a misleading article against the Aadhaar ecosystem and also uploaded a video to substantiate his claims.
Sameer Kochhar has claimed that the Aadhaar ecosystem is flawed, vulnerable, has very poor security, and can be easily hacked.(source).
It’s altogether a different matter that there are reports of Aadhar data breach caused by partner organizations including Axis bank, business correspondent Suvidhaa Inforserve and e-sign provider eMudhra and so far, there has been no clarity from the government on the security breach.
Isn’t the government playing big brother and NOT ready for any discussion or debate around Aadhar data and the privacy / security of that data?
What about iSpirit ? Who is responsible?
