Aadhar Project Of India May Be Scrapped

Aadhar project of India or unique identification project of India (UID project of India) is one of the projects that have been imposed upon India and Indian citizens by Indian government. From the very beginning the futility of Aadhar project of India and UIDAI was apparent. However, Indian government kept on wasting crores of hard earned public money for the sake of commercial benefits of few Indian and foreign companies. In reality, Aadhar project and UIDAI are booty sharing mechanisms meant for few companies.

Techno legal expert and Supreme Court lawyer Praveen Dalal who is managing partner of techno legal ICT law firm Perry4Law has been constantly suggesting that Aadhar Project must be supported by a Techno Legal Framework that must be supplemented by robust Cyber Security, Privacy Protection and Data Protection.

In the absence of these Procedural and Constitutional Safeguards, both Aadhar Project and UIDAI are Unconstitutional, says Praveen Dalal. So much so that even after the passing of the National Identification Authority of India Bill 2010 (NIDAI Bill 2010), both Aadhar Project and UIDAI would “Remain Unconstitutional”, opines Praveen Dalal. We need an altogether different law than NIDAI Bill 2010 suggests Praveen Dalal.

Indian government, Aadhar project and UIDAI are hiding truth from Indian citizens and are fooling them. However, sooner or later the truth was bound to be revealed. Besides experts in India now even the home ministry of India has been opposing the Aadhar project and UIDAI.

Aadhar project is the most evil project of India that aims at strengthening illegal and unconstitutional privacy violation and e-surveillance in India. Internet censorship in India has already increased multifold. Censorship of Internet in India is a hint towards the growing hunger for e-surveillance by Indian government.

The truth of Aadhar project and UIDAI is too frightening to elaborate. Aadhar project and UIDAI have evil intentions that are executed under the façade of welfare and social good. Both Indian government and UIDAI are fooling Indians by using the façade of benefits and welfare. Aadhar project and UIDAI are big troubles. Still the PMO is supporting the unconstitutional Aadhar project and UIDAI.

Aadhar project and UIDAI are big brother project. Nandan Nilekani is wrong regarding Aadhar project. It is high time that Aadhar project of India and UIDAI must be scrapped. Sensing the gravity of the situation a parliamentary committee is set to reject the NIDAI Bill 2010, inflicting a severe blow to UIDAI chairman Nandan Nilekani and raising doubts about Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's pet project. This decision of parliamentary committee seems to be an agreement with the suggestions of experts like Praveen Dalal.

Parliament's standing committee on finance, headed by Yashwant Sinha of the BJP, held deliberations on the controversial NIDAI Bill 2010 for a year. It considered the suggestions and recommendations of various experts in this regard. The committee's draft report giving the thumbs down to the NIDAI Bill 2010 is ready.

Sources in the panel indicated that the decision to recommend that the government should withdraw the present NIDAI Bill 2010 and bring a new one was taken "unanimously". Even Congress members found the project "directionless". It is learnt that the draft report has recommended that the government should review or reconsider the project by a bringing in a fresh Bill. The committee has said that the Bill and the project are not acceptable in the present form. The PMO must seriously think about continuation of Aadhar project now.
