Aadhaar seeding must for bank accounts under KYC norms: RBI 21.4.2018 General News
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has made linking of national biometric ID Aadhaar to bank accounts mandatory as part of its updated 'Know Your Customer (KYC)' guidelines. This, however, will be subject to the final decision of the Supreme Court on making of Aadhaar mandatory, RBI said in a circular late last night. Till now, an Officially Valid Document (OVD) for address proof together with Permanent Account Number (PAN) issued by the Income Tax department and a recent passport size photograph were the key KYC documents.

Not sure if Aadhaar is best model to accord benefits: Supreme Court tells UIDAI 19.4.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Supreme Court today said it was not sure whether bringing people "face to face" with authorities through Aadhaar was the best model as the State should reach them to accord the benefits of the welfare schemes. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, was told by the counsel for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that the 12 digit national identifier brought the citizens face to face with the service providers for getting the benefits. "We are not sure if that is the best model. The individual should not be a supplicant. The State should go to him and give him benefits," the bench, also comprising Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar,DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, said.  The bench observed that the UIDAI says Aadhaar is a means for identification, but the "only caveat to that is that there should be no exclusion". Senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for UIDAI and the Gujarat ...

Puttaswamy who is opposed to Aadhaar, countered the submission of senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), that Aadhaar authentication was not required for all transactions. "I do not have Aadhaar. I went to UCO bank branch in the Supreme Court for opening a fixed deposit account. I referred to the Supreme Court order. Still, they refused to open the account and insisted for Aadhaar," Divan told a five-judge constitution bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan.

Biometric authentication would form wealth of info which can be muisused: SC 18.4.2018 General News
If biometric authentication is attached to every transaction entered into by a person, it would "form a wealth of information" necessitating the need for data protection, the Supreme Court observed today. A five judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, apprised the UIDAI of its apprehensions saying biometric authentication of Aadhaar number in every transaction could lead to aggregation of meta data of citizens, which can be collated and used for many purposes including surveillance. "Fingerprint by itself does not disclose any information. But, when it attaches with all the other information, it forms a wealth of information and then comes the need for data protection," the bench, also comprising Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, said. "If my biometrics are attached to every transaction I undertake, it ceases to be just an identification mark," Justice Chandrachud

Certain section of people trying to fail Aadhaar by stoking imaginary fear: UIDAI 18.4.2018 General News
UIDAI today dismissed concerns that it might use Aadhaar data analysis in the future, saying a certain section of people are creating "imaginary fear" to "fail" the national ID programme. In a statement here, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) clarified that the media reports published today quoting UIDAI's Counsel Rakesh Dwivedi's argument yesterday in the Supreme Court that Google is trying to fail Aadhaar "are not correct". "...Rakesh Dwivedi, Senior Advocate had submitted that as far as Google, Facebook and Twitter are concerned, they cannot be compared with Aadhaar due to the nature of information being different and also due to difference in the nature of algorithms being used," the UIDAI statement added. Drawing a distinction between itself and such companies, it said Aadhaar is only matching biometrics, while the other global companies are using learning tools for analysis of data which creates knowledge. Moreover, UIDAI said law prohibits it from doing any .
