8 reasons why Good Governance will not come by building on Aadhaar
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the once upon a time staunch critic and opponent of Aadhaar numbering scheme, is not only enforcing, but also mandating usage of the UID number for his pet Digital India campaign 
 
The Aadhaar is putting national security in jeopardy. It is destroying governance and ability to govern. It will end the rule of law and perhaps even compromise the sovereignty of India. It is facilitating money laundering. Here is a summary of why Prime Minister Narendra Modi must act on the concerns and on his election promises.
 
1 The Political Gimmick: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been amongst the strongest critics of the unique identification (UID) or Aadhaar, recognizing that it was running on mere executive order and not legislative sanction, he had called it a political gimmick. He had further highlighted that neither the team that met him, nor the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had been able to allay his concerns and fears about National Security over the UID.
 
2 The Purpose of UID: In the presence of over a dozen different IDs, each of which serves a purpose and is not replaceable, there is no purpose served by the UID. When issued based on already existing IDs it is only adding yet another layer of red tape. When issued by “introducers” it serves no useful purpose, as it is not subject to any audit or verification. 
 
3 The Validity of UID: Furthermore, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and the Finance Ministry have admitted that there are no designated officials certifying the identity or address and as such the UID is neither proof of address (PoA) nor proof of identity (PoI). From the procedure announced by the UIDAI, to recover lost UID numbers it is evident that several records are returned for biometric and demographic information. It is required to narrow match to 5-10 entries. This also means that de-duplication using biometrics is a mere theoretical exercise and biometrics cannot produce a unique ID. The UIDAI and Ministry of Finance have both indicated that no verification or audit of the UID database has ever happened. The UID is merely a random number assigned by the UIDAI to unverified and unaudited data submitted by private parties paid for each record is therefore not even a proof of the existence of any person.
 
4 The Insurance of UID: In addition, biometrics are neither permanent nor immovable. Biometrics change during the life of a person, sometimes even within a year, without warning. Biometrics can be easily stolen, replicated or misused as has been demonstrated by hacking fingerprints, and iris scans of high profile targets. The enrollment agencies that have captured the biometric have the entire demographic and biometric database in their possession and as such it can be misused or stolen. Once the biometric fails or is stolen, all the functions that have crept to link access to the biometric are denied with little or no recourse to the victim.
 
5 The Security Risks of UID: Using the UID to establish other ID’s and claim rights as a citizen when the UID is not even a PoI, PoA or PoE or can even be stolen creates a perfect channel for identity theft and infiltration by terrorists, anti-nationals, organized criminals and illegal immigrants. It is therefore not only a threat to national security but also to the sovereignty of the country. Using the UID as the sole or electronic know your customer (KYC) to open bank accounts that have no restriction of anti-money laundering rules, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI)’s Master Circular on KYC, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the Basel Standards of keeping customer data, as has been forced by the Department of Revenue and the UIDAI on the RBI, is opening doors for use of such accounts to finance terrorism, organized crime, park black money, siphon direct cash transfers of subsidy and launder money. There are enough incidents in the country that highlight the compromise of national security through UID.
 
6 The Sufficiency of UID: Further, the UID is neither necessary nor sufficient to deliver any benefit, rights and entitlements. Each benefit, right or entitlement requires its own ID and information that can neither be captured by the UID nor was the UID ever needed to deliver these. The UID worsens the quality of the ID databases by eliminating genuine beneficiaries and adding fake beneficiaries as for example has been seen in Pondicherry. The use of UID adds a new layer to the business processes creating exclusion and increasing untraceable leakages. Any leakages can be plugged by audit of the original ID databases without requiring a UID. Further process redesign to reduce steps, increase auditability reduces leakages. Neither of these has been done. 
 
7 The Costs of UID: The UID adds cost to every business process that uses it to deliver any benefit, right or entitlement. There is no basis to show any savings effected by the use of the UID as such savings can only happen by denying the delivery of benefits, subsidies or entitlements by claiming those denied were fake entries in the ID database of the government department. Firstly there can be no claim of the UID database being free of fraudulent entries. Secondly there are no FIRs in any department against officials or fake individuals. Thirdly many genuine beneficiaries have been excluded by the use of the UID. The UID therefore has only costs, not savings. Furthermore no cost has been put to stolen identity or worse the theft of a part or the entire registry. 
 
8 The Disenfranchising by UID: A multi billion pound National ID program was scrapped by UK Prime Minister David Cameroon as part of his election promise even after the citizens had paid for their IDs for similar reasons that promised to disenfranchise the citizens and make them helpless if such an ID did not work. The US government post 9/11 under Bush had already discovered the use of Social Security Number (SSN) had resulted in identity theft of massive proportions and had issued explicit memos to all offices about "Safeguarding Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable Information”. This also required restricting the use of the SSN and delinking the SSN from multiple usage.
 
What the Prime Minister must do?
  1. Stop the UID linkages to government programs and initiate delinking UID from all government databases.
  2. Verify and audit the entire UID database; if it is too expensive to do so, destroy the database as was done in the UK.
  3. Initiate a time-bound judicial probe by a retired CAG and Supreme Court Judge supported by the CBI to investigate the exposure of the country to serious threats to national security due to UID.
  4. Audit of other government databases can be done to "clean" them without requiring any new ID.  If an ID is desired or an easy method to deliver and audit benefits is desired, consider shared ID http://www.sunday-guardian.com/analysis/time-to-think-of-aadhaars-alternatives or benefit delivery described here http://www.moneylife.in/article/10-digital-solutions-to-make-india-the-best-governed-nation/38338.html.

    UID ? what is it? People of Chennai do not even know of this. So why should Modi link anything to Aadhar? That is blatantly unfair and illegal. Modi had fought against Aadhar. Now he is for. Why? What changed his mind?

    Dr Anupam,enjoyed reading your optimism brother.

    Nandan creator of UID has lost election.So people rejected.

    Except Sukaram all Ministers in India are legally honest & clean because our country is run by Lawyers( Jaitley is Master Finance Minister & Ravi Shankar Prasad is Master in Telecom/Broadcast/IT along with Law)(Raja ex Lawyer did great Telecom service in 2G,Coal Scam Lawyer Ashwin Kumar) & great General Entertainment Political Tamasha like news entertain our gullible audiences well with 36 news channels day & night INDIA WANTS TO KNOW??).

    Sir its great country with great laws great systems feeding excellence in corruptions in varieties so relax & enjoy across the ministries.

    Ask What Sucheta /Chitra got ROI for breaking Stock & Bofors?

    Lastly our PM who says before elections NCP is ( Naturally Corrupt Party and after elcetions ( I used to consult Sharadji during my Chief Ministerial days on Governance at Baramati visit-result Ajit Pawar is answering ACB queries from home needles to say Lawyer Rahul Narvekar & may be additional batteries like Chidambaram Lawyer).

    So why get upset things are gettng better Acche Din aagaey.

    Laugh be merry be healthy why get into another Aadhar which is avghad in Marathi.

    I will give real example of how poorly designed social benefit schemes are, while linking it to Aadhaar no. In Gas subsidy scheme there were multiple ways in which people could link Aadhaar no to gas subscriber data eg SMS, toll free no, filling form etc This way one could only 'add' a record to DBTL database. What if a mistake is done in recording this dta because either user made mistake in giving Aadhaar no by Sms Or similar mistake by person receiving call on tollfree no? It happened to me. I made a mistake in registering wrong Aadhaar no. Now, I find that there is no way I can delete or modify this record that was created in DBTL database. Even subsequent submission of filled form at gas agency is not able to change earlier record! I have got in to several telephonic and email exchanges with UIDAI and DBTL officials but no one is able to rectify a wrong record created by SMS or Tollfree no official.

    Worst part is that it seems that there is no basic verification done by DBTL to ensure that name of gas subscriber and address is matched with that on Aadhaar no. If done, such wrong record would not get created in DbTL database.

    Going by this information above, if some one manages to send SMS or talk to toll free no before I do, he can link my gas subscriber details with any Aadhaar no and deprive me of the gas subsidy for ever!!

    Even there is a lack of any confirmation by banks when we give request to link Aadhaar no with bank account no. Bank simply say we have taken request. Whether they have really linked bank account no with correct Aadhhaar no remains a mystery, till you start receiving subsidy money in your bank account. What is the remedy if bank maakes a mistake?

    We are left to deal with bad systems and processes!!!

    A hapless situation in spite of brightest IT brains in our country.

    Assume for a moment that everything about AADHAAR is wrong. Please tell which other 'proof of identity' that we otherwise use if fool proof, less error prone or even better than AADHAAR. End of the day, nothing can be perfect and the need is to find improved solutions and not just crib.

    Many of the points are not convincing nor relevant. Aadhaar, in essence, is the assigning of a number to a unique set of biometrics. One set of Biometrics = One Individual. Now the weak point may be the name and identity used by that individual - this is a matter that can be verified as and when needed.Whatever name/guise adopted by an individual, the biometrics attached to the Aadhaar number will identify him. Why should an address be of such major concern - people are mobile and an address should be considered as a variable. Many of the weaknessess/shortcomings are solvable problems over the long run.

    Look at the benefits delivered by Aadhaar so far and weigh that against the hypothetical problems.

    Yes, it is importaant to have a proper sytem with checks and balances and laws to prevent abuse but the basic concept is sound.

    It is the identity of immigrants, who have been allotted AADHAR numbers on the recommendation of politicians that is the major issue. Once that is set right, the other glitches can be corrected. It is reported that a number of Bangladeshis have been enrolled. That is the major defect.

    All very valid reasons why AADHAR is a very weak document, especially because of reason 2 in the list.
    But have you tried meeting Nilekani and tried to convince him?
    The least the Govt. can do now to raise the credibility of AADHAR is to de-recognise those AADHAR cards which have been issued on "introductions".

    Was the opposition to UID during the 2014 Parliament election a "Chunavi Jumla"? If so, the party in government owes an apology to the people of India. An excellent piece of writing by Anupam.
    Let me give some unsolicited advice to the PM and his cabinet colleagues as well as his party chief. The best way to ensure your defeat at the next elections is to harass people with these kinds of new-fangled technologies, improperly applied for inappropriate uses at the behest of foreign lobbies.

    The fundamental reason why Aadhar will be just one more way to torment and fleece the helpless and the disenfranchised Mango Man of India is the experience of the last 65 years. Every tool and law in the hands of India's tyrants, beginnign with the constitution, has been used by the Neta-Babu-Cop-Milard-Crony-Preferred Castes, tribes and religions Kleptocracy to divert others wealth, opportunities and happiness into their pockets. Neither Aadhar nor Digital India will be different.:

    At least, immediately the Aadhar Cards issued on the basis of Introducers should be cancelled or suspended to be revived on submission of necessary documents.

    Aadhaar is a disaster, says Dr Swamy
    Dr Subramanian Swamy reiterated his view that the Aadhaar numbering scheme, which is based on existing data and the software prepared by foreign companies should be scrapped
     
    Dr Subramanian Swamy has called for scrapping the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) promoted Aadhaar numbering scheme terming it a 'disaster'.
     
    In response to a question during a seminar organised by Moneylife Foundation in Mumbai, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, said, "Aadhaar is a disaster. It is based on existing data systems. Software is prepared by foreign companies. Aadhaar should be scrapped. Sooner or later, it is bound to happen.”  
     
    Dr Swamy was asked why the BJP government was going ahead with Aadhaar and seemed to be finding back-door ways to make it mandatory, when there was a stay order by the Supreme Court and there were several serious problems with biometrics based identification. 
     
    Dr Swamy explained how he had spoken against Aadhaar, while campaigning from BJP minister Ananth Kumar in the Bengaluru Sought constituency for the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.  Ananth Kumar’s main rival was Nandan Nilekani, the former chief of UIDAI and Congress candidate. Nilekani, a software billionaire and former head of Infosys Ltd was considered a tough candidate and it was expected that the many benefits promised by Aadhaar would work to his advantage. 
     
    “Nilekani was contesting for the Lok Sabha election from Bengaluru and our party candidate Ananth Kumar gave me a panic call and asked me, if I would campaign for him. He said Nilekani was propagating Aadhaar and he (Kumar) did not know the technical details to demolish it. I studied it and then went for the campaigning. I gave two-three speeches, which went very well and also against Nilekani, who lost the seat,” he said.
     
    “But then I found when the new government came in, they decided to renovate or bring it (Aadhaar) in new form. So I asked, Ananth Kumar, who had become a minister, that you made me to come and argue (against Aadhaar). Now with what face I will go and tell people that I do not know what is going on? He said, I also don’t know what is going on. So if the minister doesn’t know what’s going on then don’t blame me if I don’t know what is going on,” said Dr Swamy with a laugh. “But I certainly think that Aadhaar is a disaster,” he added.
     
    Dr Swamy’s speeches had drawn attention to the flaws in the biometric identification scheme, which is opposed by privacy groups and on the grounds of efficacy of its identification. Dr Swamy is the first leader of the BJP to have the courage to speak his mind and stick to his stand on this issue, despite the political cost that would probably be involved. 
     
    A study conducted by Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, judged the Aadhaar scheme “the most useless” and the Standing Committee of Parliament on Finance too had echoed the same view, Dr Swamy had said. He had also said, during his campaign speeches that Nilekani ought to be prosecuted under Section 13 (1) (G)/3 of the Prevention of the Corruption Act for squandering of resources on the Aadhaar scheme.
      
    Hearing public interest litigations (PILs), the Supreme Court, had repeatedly directed the government not to make Aadhaar number mandatory to provide social benefit to citizens. In the hearing on 16 March 2015, the Bench of Justices J Chelameswar, SA Bobde and C Nagappan also expressing dissatisfaction at defiance of Court's repeated orders by the central and state governments.

    Secularism is code word for tolerance to corruption, nepotism, dynastic rule, reservations to divide and destroy India and bad governance. Hope utterly honest, non corrupt and hard working Modi & Yogi team is capturing hearts of all Indians. India is in competition with totalitarian single party China. India needs to have direct democracy where every law is enacted using SMS based referendum with due weigh given to voter's knowledge of the issue. This is possible with advances in communication and computing.

    Why does moneylife keep giving so much coverage to Mr. Subramaniam Swamy ? Are there not more credible persons on the subjects under discussion- like Black money, or Aadhar ?

    Why is Moneylife devaluing its own credibility by citing and promoting discredited politicians like Mr. Subramaniam Swamy ?

    We do need a good identification card that is difficult to manipulate. If AADHAAR is bad, the errors should be flagged and rectifications carried out. To a layman who has seen Voter ID cards, Ration Cards, Driving Licences, this seems to be the most sophisticated one as finger prints and the retina too are scanned and are verifiable.

    It is amusing to say the least that Subramanian Swamy is commenting about a project that he has apparently 'studied'!!! I for one would be very much interested to know exactly what has he 'studied' of the project and its implementation. And if his creative genius as a better manner in which the Identity of an individual can be established, it would be even more welcome to hear it out!! Surely the genius that he is, he must have already thought of a great solution to all the billions of rupees that are accounted for in the subsidies!! A champion that he is for Nationalist causes, Subramanian Swamy can even publish a white paper on his analysis of the project and its purported defects for the technical community to analyse and respond. Wonder why he doesn't seem to be interested in bringing this out?! Unfortunately, mediocrity is admired and celebrated in our country and this article is just another evidence! If he has studied Biometrics and its aspects, understood the algorithms that are being employed in the project and the security features that it embeds, I wonder just how he'd have been able to rant. He is adept at beating around the bush, and his response only shows his disinclination for pursuit of knowledge let alone admit to his wonderful lack of the same!

    you have put it very simple language. Why SS stopped at Ananth Kumar he should have got his doubts clarified from NaMo because NaMo has taken the seat with single aim to remove any thing remotely connected with Congress. Still NaMo has been convinced by Nilakeni the benefits of Aadhaar, definitely there must be some major good in Aadhaar.

    Dr Swamy is paranoid and is quite infamous for spreading disinformation . He should know the difference between the software provided by world class and the software provided by " foreign companies" . AAdhar is a world class project pioneered by world class companies , in which no single company has the KEYS to alter anything . It is the single biggest initiative to reduce the drain on the perpetual drain on the exchequer . Nandan should be honoured for his work that he did pro bono , rather than he be cast in a prison . Nandan never asked for the job . He was asked to get the job done by two successive governments . It is a tribute to PM Modi that he rose above politics and saw the merits in the AAdhar scheme. So what if he lost the elections . Has Dr Swamy ever won any ?

    at present nearly most people have aadhaar card.particularly people living permanently in other states and other areas ,because of compulsion for gas subsidy. (eventhough the court order is different ).In future without compulsion voter's ID may be replaced for new applicants for above eighteen years. If we do like this after ten or fifteen years all have aadhaar card.precautions must be taken to maintain( as per Mr. swamy's discussion on )

    Aadhar is not approved by parliament and SC has also objected to it and passed directions to govt to not make it compulsory for any service. BJP is under no compulsion to continue Congress wrongs. BJP knows it well but after PM Modi invited Nilekani, he had a change of heart, and adopted Congress's brainchild, perpetuating coercion on hapless citizens, coercing them to join scheme and to expand it further from where cong left. Aadhar gives extra power to the state at the cost of citizens and no wonder once in power BJP has had a change of heart. BJP Cong r in same boat and Dr Swamy could not have been more blunt holding his own minister to the U-turn.

    Aadhaar like New(National) Pension System came in without any legal backing, hanged around with support from certain vested interests and now, are being supported by government. A Government which dared to dismantle Planning Commission should have reviewed the approach to Aadhaar and NPS.

    Aadhaar for students: Maharashtra govt openly flouts Supreme Court order

    The Supreme Court directed union as well all state government not to make Aadhaar mandatory. Yet, Maharashtra's Education Department is enforcing Aadhaar registration for all students below 14 

     

    Despite a clear direction from the Supreme Court and statement from the Narendra Modi-led union government for not making Aadhaar mandatory, the Maharashtra government is openly flouting both. Without knowing that biometrics, especially of children is most susceptible to undergo change over years, the Education Department headed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s Vinod Tawde is forcing Aadhaar enrolment for all students across the state.
     
    According to a report from Times of India, "Aadhaar will be compulsory for school students and they will have to apply for it by 26th June. It will be linked with children's admission numbers and government benefits they are entitled to. Over 1 crore children in the state up to 14 years of age will be brought under Aadhaar."
     
    The Maharashtra government issued a resolution (GR) (201504211358081421) on 21st April that makes it mandatory for all students up to 14 years of age in the state to register for an Aadhaar number and connect it with their school admission number. The district collector, as well as district education officer, is asked to fully implement this scheme before 26th June and submit a report. What the Education Department has forgotten is that at present majority of schools in the state are having summer vacations and would reopen only in second or third week of June.
     
    Quoting sources, the newspaper report says, “…the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), through the state government, has directed the state's school education and women and child welfare departments to employ agencies to bring the children under Aadhaar, instead of deploying teaching staff. But the government wants school staff to create maximum awareness among students and ensure their registration quickly. It also wants these departments to take up a massive public campaign.”
     
    This order from the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra government is completely in contrast with the decision of the Supreme Court. On 16 March 2015, a Bench of Justices J Chelameswar, SA Bobde and C Nagappan directed the central and state governments not to insist on possessing Aadhaar for availing benefits under the various social security schemes as it reiterated an order it passed in September 2013.
     
    The apex court did not appear appreciative when Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar submitted that some states were not abiding by the court order.
     
    "It is your duty to ensure our orders are followed. You can't say states are not following our order," the Bench told him, stressing it was incumbent upon the central government to ensure that the states complied with the apex court's order.
     
    Directing the next hearing of the matter in the second week of July and noting the presence of the centre and all the states, the court said: "We expect all to scrupulously adhere to our order dated 23 September 2013."
     
    Last month, in a written reply to Lok Sabha, Planning Minister Rao Inderjit Singh said, the government was not considering any proposal to make it mandatory for citizens to get Aadhaar card issued by the UIDAI. “Various ministries, departments and agencies of Centre and states that implement different schemes/ programmes involving provisions of benefits or services are encouraged to leverage Aadhaar for elimination of fakes and duplicates from the list of beneficiaries, increasing efficiency of implementation and achieving higher levels of transparency in operations. In doing so it has to be ensured that no eligible person suffers, or is denied any benefit or service, merely for the lack of an Aadhaar," the minister had said.
     
    Earlier too in March 2014, the Supreme Court directed the union government to withdraw all orders making Aadhaar or the unique identification (UID) number mandatory for residents.

     

    Coming back to the issue of biometrics related with Aadhaar, it is a well-known fact that human body parts like fingerprint, iris, voice age, wither and decay with the passage of time. Is there a biological material in the human body that constitutes biometric data, which is immortal, ageless and permanent? 
     
    Besides working conditions, humidity, temperature and lighting conditions also impact the quality of biological material used for generating biometric data. Both Aadhaar and NPR are based on the unscientific and questionable assumption that there are parts of human body likes fingerprint, iris, voice etc” that does not age, wither and decay with the passage of time.
     
    Those who support Aadhaar and NPR seem to display unscientific temper by implication. A report “Biometric Recognition: Challenges and Opportunities” of the National Research Council, USA published on 24 September 2010 concluded that the current state of biometrics is ‘inherently fallible’. That is also one of the findings of a five-year study. This study was jointly commissioned by the CIA, the US Department of Homeland Security and the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency.
     
    There is a need for the Parliament, Supreme Court, state legislatures and High Courts to examine whether or not biometrics provides an established way of fixing identity of Indians. 
     
    With the Maharashtra government openly flouting directions from the Supreme Court, it is high time the apex court take suo moto action against those responsible, be it the Education Minister or other babus.
