J. Chandrachud: the DoT notification says that Aadhaar SIM linking is being done on the direction of the SC while the SC had not issued any such direction.— sflc.in (@SFLCin) April 25, 2018
RD: No, it was done on the recommendation of TRAI before the Lok Niti order had even come out.
JB: Requirements under Rule 9(1)-(13) is made mandatory by Rule 9(14). The master circular is now in conformity with PMLA rules. RBI has no option but to amend the master circular.— sflc.in (@SFLCin) April 25, 2018
RD: We need to have big data, processing power and statistical knowhow to do big data analysis as Google is doing.— sflc.in (@SFLCin) April 25, 2018

RD: in aadhaar similarly, there is criminal liability; no exception whatsoever for core biometrics; No breach so far.— Prasanna S (@prasanna_s) April 24, 2018
RD: Petitioners should suggest improvements if any...should not just ask it to be knocked off.

Sikri J says it is a question of apprehension of using the data in a manner and for purposes unauthorised and against the individual.— Prasanna S (@prasanna_s) April 19, 2018
RD says fear has to be real not fantastic.
CJI says RD cannot make those subjective judgment on that.
CJI advices RD to structure his submissions to articulate it as a Article 21 and minimal intrusion.— Prasanna S (@prasanna_s) April 19, 2018
Minimality of intrusion will take care of balancing and Article 21 for many will be the legitimate state interest.
RD reiterates that the point of Aadhaar is to bring the provider of benefit face to face with the beneficiary.— sflc.in (@SFLCin) April 19, 2018
J. Chandrachud: I'm not sure if that's the best model.
The individual should not be a supplicant. The State should go to him and give him benefits.
