New Delhi, March 21 If you just have to identify the citizens, what is the need to centralise and aggregate their personal data under the Aadhaar scheme, the Supreme Court asked the Centre on Wednesday. The Centre, in turn, urged a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra to allow Ajay Bhushan Pandey, CEO of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), to make a powerpoint presentation to the court to allay the apprehensions about the Aadhaar scheme. Attorney General K K Venugopal, who started the arguments for the Centre, said the CEO would answer queries of the bench on all issues like surveillance, data security and exclusion and sought the nod for it tomorrow.

Jat quota: Report on caste data likely to be delayed 22.3.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, March 21 As the collection of caste data of population is in progress, the Haryana Government is likely to move an application before the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking extension for submission of a report by the Haryana Backward Classes Commission (HBCC). In its order pronounced on September 1, 2017, the High Court had directed the HBCC to determine the quota entitlement, if any, to Jats, Sikh Jats, Muslim Jats, Bishnois, Rors and Tyagis, and submit its report by March 31. Sources said the state government had provided the HBCC with the data on representation of castes in government jobs, albeit with a little delay, but it is yet to furnish caste-wise data on population. An indication of delay in submitting the report can be gauged from the fact that the departments of Rural Development and Urban Local Bodies started collecting caste-wise population data on March 12. However, HBCC chairman Justice SN Aggarwal said the state government had assured the commission of ...

In a relief for depositors who have lost their money in Ponzi schemes or deposit plans, the state government will amend the law to ensure that properties of such companies and their directors can be auctioned faster and the money returned to the victims.
