the North East states she said PTI News reports that the mandatory use of Aadhaar could be extended to a host of new areas are extremely disturbing According to these reports the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has identified 20 new areas for which Aadhaar can be made mandatory This includes registration of companies and NGOs insurance competitive examinations and property and vehicle registration If this happens then it confirms the worst suspicions of all those who are opposed to Aadhaar – and this spans ideological divides – that it can be used to seriously compromise individual privacy A villager scanning fingerprint for Aadhaar Reuters file photo The defenders of Aadhaar – mainly the previous and current governments the UIDAI and Nandan Nilekani the father of the Aadhaar – have always argued that these concerns are exaggerated They have pointed out that Aadhaar does not take any details that are not already in the public domain – name date of birth and permanent address – and that the biometric data is not shared with any of the authorities that seek verification by Aadhaar That data remains with the UIDAI and it only confirms that a person with a particular Aadhaar number is who he claims he is But Aadhaar’s opponents have argued that the extensive use of Aadhaar allows disparate bits of information to be linked and this could become a genuine concern if this hare-brained idea gets official approval Now there is certainly no doubt that Aadhaar is in the absence of anything better the best technological tool for establishing identity It is not entirely fool-proof – there are issues relating to the fingerprints of manual labourers and iris scan of aged people or those with cataract – a solution needs to be found for this According to this report by the Centre for Internet and Society there was fingerprint authentication failure in 290 of 790 ration card holders in Andhra Pradesh who did not lift rations and there was an ID mismatch in 93 instances These problems notwithstanding there is no denying that Aadhaar has helped in significantly containing (perhaps not entirely eliminating) the problem of identity theft for diversion of government doles and other benefits So making Aadhaar compulsory for such cases is perfectly justifiable Indeed the Act giving legal status to Aadhaar is called Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Act 2016 Mandatory quoting of Aadhaar can even be justified in the cases where duplication or falsification of identity can be used by criminals or those who fall foul of the law Passports for example can be brought under the ambit of Aadhaar Or even driving licences A person whose licence has been suspended for repeated traffic violations should not be allowed to get another one under the same name or an assumed name But why should it be mandatory for bank accounts if an individual is not interested in getting government doles The quoting of Aadhaar for property transactions also does not make sense If the idea is to prevent fraudulent transactions it will not be foolproof A person intending to sell an already sold property or one he does not own can do so even with an Aadhaar number since people are allowed to own more than one piece of property What will prevent this from happening is compulsory registration and digitisation of records as well as mandatory property titling; there has been little progress on both When filing of income tax returns is not possible without a PAN there is little rationale for making Aadhaar mandatory for filing returns and even for PAN It is not clear how quoting of Aadhaar is going to help in ensuring that fly-by-night companies and NGOs do not get established The insistence of Aadhaar on purchase of vehicles landline and mobile phone connections and demat accounts is seriously violative of individual privacy and has enormous potential for misuse The Act does give the government unbridled power to access data in the name of national security This itself is worrying since it can allow security agencies to go an random fishing expeditions to access personal financial transactions Making it mandatory for even buying cars and phone connections (even though it is not illegal to own more than one vehicle or telephone connection) makes it even riskier – private agencies get access to one’s Aadhaar number Forget security agencies even unscrupulous private persons can track an individual’s personal activities especially financial transactions As it is investigating agencies want to tap Aadhaar and biometric data at the drop of a hat The UIDAI had to approach the Supreme Court in 2014 against a Goa High Court order ordering it to share biometric details of everyone enrolled in the state for solving a gang rape case Even after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of UIDAI a Kerala special investigation team wanted it to share biometric details to solve another rape case If Aadhaar now becomes mandatory for a host of financial and other transactions the points of potential privacy breaches only increase The move to extend the mandatory use of Aadhaar has to be stopped in its tracks The mandatory use should be limited to delivery of government welfare benefits and doles (after ensuring that glitches are eliminated) and security-related services like passports For everything else it should be purely voluntary There can be no compromise on this Written by Paul Zacharia | Published: February 11 2012 2:16 am Related News When Kerala Marxists tried to induct Jesus into the party Jesus Christ has been all over Kerala for something like 1800 years now and he is quite used to our politics and media and vice versa It is generally agreed the religion that goes under his name arrived here when the first Christians were still underground in the Roman Empire and mainland Europe was pretty much a jungle It is also almost certain that the Jesus story came here via the spice-trade connectionsthough Kerala Christians love to believe that the apostle St Thomas (the one who had those famous doubts) himself came over It makes them feel better But more sober observers point out that perhaps it was from the JewishSyrian and Persian trade enclaves that the seed of Christianity was planted in the Kerala soil Anywayin 1498when Vasco da Gama anchored his ship at Kappad and went sightseeing he was shocked to see Christians Christians In this God-forsaken coconut jungle Later came the Dutchand the British followed They all brought

religion or ideologysimply take the man for granted Cool is the word Even when you fight the Churchnobody fights him He is treated as that no-problem guy Considering his popularitythe Marxists were foolish not to have inducted him into the party long time back Wisdom came too late and at a time when the ruling UDF is faced with a live-or-die by-election at Piravom where the Christian vote is the key Andworseat a time the two communist parties are holding their state conferences and the pro-UDF media is leaving no stone unturned to damage them any which way Andnot to forgetit was just recently that the Church and the Marxist government were in a bitter battle over the issue of self-financing professional colleges All about money of courseaccounted and unaccounted And the Church can be very tough about money And so when an innocuous painting portraying crucified Jesus was featured in a cultural exhibition innovatively titled Marx is Right at the CPMs state conference venueit was picked up by pro-UDF votaries as an ominous somethingthough they couldnt exactly say what A few days earlierMV Jayarajanthe CPMs northern Kerala boss with a nasty reputationhad picked up the Jesus-scent (he doesnt know the difference between Jesus Christ and Jesse James) and prematurely announced that Jesus was a revolutionary and added a wonderful historical footnote: thereforePrakash Karat was like Jesus Everyone just smiled Thank God Jayarajan didnt ask Karat to be crucified also to fit the bill better Then the UDF media landed on the Last Supper parody a hilarious take on Da Vincis famous workput up by the CITU on a hoarding in Thiruvananthapuram It shows Obama in Jesuss place and the 12 disciples around him range from Manmohan Singh to Narendra Modi It is sheer fun A pro-UDF newspaper displayed the picture on its front page and insinuated that it was an attack on Christianswhen even a child knows that Leonardos painting is not holy and it is a work of art in the public space The internet will give you at least a few hundred famous parodies of the Last Supper To be faireven enemies of the Church would vouch that left to itself it would not have even glanced at these minor taunts It lives in a world of supreme confidence In this case it would have been only pleased that Jesus had found a place in Marxist iconography And the Churchs humanistic showpieceLiberation Theologyis all about Jesus being a crusader for the poor and the oppressed The CPM had said only so much The dangerous sign here is how the media had forced the Churchs hand to politicise the issue a

McIlroy a four-time major champion “He said: ‘You’re Rory McIlroy what are you doing”’ Initially his response was passive “Whatever” replied McIlroy who had bogeyed four of his first five holes and was about to drop another shot at No 6 But then came the recovery McIlroy got up and down from a front bunker for par at the short 7th hole rolled in a 15-foot putt for par at the 8th hole having pushed his drive into the rough and birdied four of his last eight holes to shoot a 1-over 71 One of the biggest roars of the day at Royal Birkdale came from the giant grandstands at No 18 when
