Aadhaar becomes Optional

I commend all the members who stood up against the forced Aadhaar in these circles. Aadhaar has become optional, thanks to the courts and one can now opt out of it so your information isnt compromised in a mass way.

The Supreme Court had ordered against the government’s orders to make linking of Aadhaar number a must to avail almost all government services and even the private services like the mobile phone. The SC had upheld the sanctity of Aadhaar but with condition.

The initial UIDAI proposal suggested that once an individual turns 18, he/she would be given six months to decide if he wants to withdraw from Aadhaar. The Law Ministry, however, reportedly recommended that the option to withdraw be made to all citizens regardless of the age group.

The proposal also says that those who opt out of the Aadhaar scheme, won’t be able to avail the government schemes and subsidies where linking Aadhaar is a mandatory. more

Why Aadhar is opposed in such a way while we all had been compromising with our identity even before introducing Aadhar by giving all our details excepting biometrics for getting services from the banks and any other establishments? Looking to the identification of millions of duplicate Ration Cards, Voters' Id, Gas connections (subsidised), falls & duplicate billing under various government schemes etc. because of Aadhar, the government's decision making Aadhar mandatory has been proved to be a very effective tool, which must be continued in the future as well. more  
The Evil spirit under Privacy demand is such that it kills National Economy. Supreme Court to re-define please more  
All financial transactions must be linked to aadhar and pan.This will help in detecting and removing bogus/fraudster benami transactions and will clean economy.Even tax payer and tax payment will improve.There are crores of people who are filthy rich and do not pay any tax will be forced to pay tax. more  
It is really a piety if we think of the silence of Governing Bodies while lakhs of Crores are getting looted in many means more  
It is moronic to oppose Aadhaar. It should be compulsory for all. more  
Sure. Like your my baap to decide for me more  
Everyone here i want to give you a free session on information security and why your bio metrics are so important and why you shouldn't allow any government to force you with an id that has your vital information in it. Interested? Comment below. more  
Haha one guy here who calls himself a software professional who has no idea about how information security works, has no knowledge of English, and cannot argue technically just reported my comment as inappropriate. What a shame. I wonder if all graduates from what's app university behave like babies in public forums. First he replies to my comment, then when i give plenty of reasons why aadhar is not secure he marks it inappropriate. Teens shouldn't be allowed to use this website. more
