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.

Are your parents in unclean jobs? Haryana students asked 11.4.2018 Deccan Herald - News
The BJP-led Haryana government is courting controversy over seeking "absurd" details from school students, including one that seeks to know if their parents are engaged in any "unclean occupation". The student admission form that has been circulated by the state education department also seeks details of parents Aadhar numbers, caste and religion. The deadline for submitting the forms for admission is April 16. The Congress has slammed Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and his government for what they infer as uncalled surveillance on parents and propagation of untouchability. The 100-point questionnaire also asks students to state if they are "mentally challenged". Another question wants to know if the student is suffering from any "genetic disorder".
