Move to seed Aadhar with phones, bank accounts gets cabinet nod 18.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
New Delhi The Cabinet on Monday approved amending the existing laws to provide legal backing for seeding of biometric ID Aadhaar with mobile numbers and bank accounts as an optional KYC after the Supreme Court barred mandatory use of 12-digit unique identifier by private firms, sources said. The Cabinet headed by prime minister Narendra Modi approved amendments to the Telegraph Act and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after the Supreme Court in September imposed restrictions on the use of Aadhaar by private companies. “Private entities using Aadhaar as a KYC document will have to ensure safety and privacy of the Aadhaar data,” a source said. Sources said the two Acts will be amended to provide for voluntary sharing of the 12-digit identification number for obtaining new mobile phone connections and for the opening of bank accounts.

Virtual ID system in operation; banks to deploy Aadhaar verification tool by August 31st: UIDAI 30.6.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The UIDAI on Saturday said virtual ID mechanism that can be used in lieu of Aadhaar number for identity verification is now "operational" with its various authentication agencies. The authority, which issues 12-digit identifier, however, said banks would have time until August 31 to deploy the new feature. In January this year, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) announced plans to introduce virtual ID (VID) feature which an Aadhaar-card holder can generate from its website and produce for various authentication purposes, instead of sharing the actual 12-digit biometric ID. The VID feature aims at strengthening the privacy and security of Aadhaar data, given increasing concerns over collection of personal and demographic details of individuals.  In a statement today, UIDAI said virtual ID (VID) system is operational with authentication user agencies (AUAs) which have migrated to VID and UID token using the software (Auth API 2.5 and e-KYC API 2.5) that supports new VID capability.  The ...
