Personal security and legality of Aadhar card data


aman8210

Question

aman8210

Thank you sir and mam, I got your point .

I also wanted to know that if I want to ask about legal framework and privacy norms of any policy run by gov of India then what should I ask for? As auditors certify the financial management, is there someone else who certify the legal framework of that policy?

Privacy is an individual right, which is considered as a facet of fundamental rights. Government policies are meant for public benefit and hence there is openness and transparency and accessible to public, subject to exemptions under Section-8 or 9 of RTI Act.

 

Public policies are outcome of legislative exercises and such policies are framed for public benefit. Illegalities, if any, can be assailed before competent court of law.

Hon sir/ mam,

My previous query regarding privacy and legality was in context to UIDAI, Aadhar card company.

Actually I want to know that the biometrics and data of each is in safe hands or not.

Beacuse I heard that uidai lacks its legal framework and they can do anything with data they have, it would like spying on everyone with consent of all.

That's why I want know about its legal framework regarding the privacy of our personal data.

So please let me know what should I ask for in this situation.

Wrong thread: Thread must be : Privacy and legality in AADHAR card linkage.

 

Hon Manoj,

The issue is undoubtedly RTI issue and most important issue. This requires indepth study and one must be familiar with which AADHAR is presently being linked to.

 

Let senior moderators also advise as one has to go through SC judgment and several other important aspects as personal security is involved. (Experts please study the post and guide all others about the intricacies involved in the process of AADHAR, as Govt has first stated that it is not linked to any welfare and now from rationcard, gas connection, voter card , welfare schemes, Bank account, Electricity, Municipal tax, employment...this AADHAR is being linked to every aspect that links citizen with every Public authority)

There is a specific directive from Hon'ble Apex Court that biometric or any other data from Aahdar should not be shared with any authorities unless the person concerned gives consent in writing.

 

You may file RTI Application with the CPIO of UDAI and seek the

 

[1] certified copy of the data sharing policy with respect to AADHAR database held by and under the control of UDAI, as on 31/5/2015.

 

[2] Certified copy of any Rules, Regulations, Notifications, Circulars, OMs or any other document stipulating specific prohibition to share data for any other purpose than civilian application for which AADHAR data were created.

 

[3] Please inform me the designation and office address of the competent authority, to disclose Aadhar data to any other Government Agencies including Police and Intelligence agencies for investigation purposes.

 

[4] Certified copy of any order by Hon'ble Apex Court specifically prohibiting to share the Aadhar Data with any other Govt agencies for investigation purpose.

 

Central RTI Rules and Fee shall apply - CENTRAL / STATE RTI RULES - GUIDE
