Join us on January 12, from 4-6pm at the Mumbai Press Club as we respond to the government in one voice that we do not support this Aadhaar-enabled coercion!

#BreakAadhaarChains

 

  • Rachna Khaira of the Tribune, Chandigarh, broke the story of admin logins to the UIDAI official site being sold for Rs. 500, giving access to billions of Aadhaar details! The UIDAI responded by filing an FIR against her and the Tribune!
  • The UIDAI announces the creation of temporary “Virtual IDs” which, in the view of tech experts, will not work unless all existing Aadhaars – already publicly available – are revoked and reissued!
  • The Justice B.N, Srikrishna Committee has put out a white paper calling for a public consultation on a data protection framework, and is currently holding public meetings.
  • “If people do not have Aadhaar cards, do they not exist for the government?” the Supreme Court asked on January 10, in a hearing on night shelters requiring the homeless to show Aadhaar as proof of identity.

 

Aadhaar, the supposedly unique identity, involves the largest collection of personal information anywhere in the world. No other democracy subjects its citizens to such a lifelong risk. Today, Aadhaar is required for a host of services from birth certificates to death certificates, school admissions, scholarships, PDS rations, NREGA job cards, bank accounts, mobile services – the list is endless. This expansion has happened despite the growing number of exclusions and denial of welfare benefits, subsidies, and other services for want of an Aadhaar number, and data security breaches.

 

Multiple #AadhaarLeaks and #AadhaarScams have repeatedly exposed how every facet of Aadhaar security, including biometrics, are prone to being hacked. Foreign companies with dubious origins have been contracted to ‘store, transfer and process’ our personal information, posing a threat to national security. With the Supreme Court’s Constitution Bench set to decide the validity of Aadhaar in hearings starting January 17, we may have just one last chance to stop Aadhaar – before it alters our lives completely.

 

#BreakAadhaarChains is a campaign to stop the government from treating us like criminals out to loot the state.

    The movement for protection against aadhar must pick up because it is being linked to every walk of life. This may be dangerous for future as privacy may be curtailed
