The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Friday described as “factually incorrect” allegations that it has shared residents’ particulars in bulk for functions aside from these supplied within the Aadhaar Act.
It has by no means shared any knowledge with any entity aside from its Authorised User Agencies, and they’re “strictly prohibited from sharing any information about residents’ Aadhaar detail,” an official launch from UIDAI right here stated.
“The recent allegations that UIDAI has shared residents” details in bulk for purposes other than provided in the Aadhaar Act are factually incorrect. UIDAI is committed to protecting privacy of residents always,” it added.
Information collected by UIDAI shouldn’t be used for any goal aside from era of Aadhaar numbers and authentication, it stated.
“Any disclosure of information (other than core biometric information), including identity information or authentication records can only be made pursuant to an order of a Judge of a High Court, and that too after giving an opportunity of hearing to both UIDAI and the concerned Aadhaar number holder as per Section 31 of the Act,” the discharge added.
