The Aadhar controversy

Friday, May 04, 2018

THE news report of PF portal being hacked and 2.7 cr members registered exposed to data theft comes as a shock. Aadhar seeding portal is the site from where your personal data is being stolen in most cases of frauds and scams. Is linking your bank accounts and other important financial transactions to ‘Aadhar’ a sensible move by the govt when the system is not fool proof is a matter of contention and controversy. Not sure why everything should be linked to Aadhar when matters of financial transactions are already linked to your PAN number. Nobody denies the advantages Aadhar number has for future as it would give an uniqe identity but one needs to plug the loopholes before it is made mandatory. We are today living in the times of online digital frauds which has their roots in some African countries where even the govt is helpless to undo the damage whenever such frauds take place. Prevention is always better than cure is not just limited to health but also to the world of finance. Top IT companies should be hired to plug all loopholes in ‘Aadhar’ and digitization platform before linking Aadhar or any other important personal details linkage is made mandatory by law!
