Privacy issues exist even without Aadhaar4 min read . Updated: 16 Nov 2017, 04:46 AM IST
There is a critical need for a data privacy regulator to penalize unauthorized disclosure of personal information
In part I, I argued that while Aadhaar can be a tool to infringe upon our right to privacy, it is merely one such; there exist other tools that can be similarly exploited. This becomes evident when you analyse each privacy issue related to Aadhaar using the National Privacy Principles framework, and compare Aadhaar’s data privacy risks to other national ID systems. We need an independent data privacy regulator, backed by a robust law, to safeguard against the risks.
