Uniqueness Of Aadhaar Is A Lie As It Does Not Provide Any Unique Identity Opines Praveen Dalal

You must have heard a lot about uniqueness of Aadhaar that it provides a unique identity to its holder. That is a white lie as Aadhaar does not provide any unique identity informs Praveen Dalal.

Firstly, 99% people who have enrolled for Aadhaar have shown two or more government identity documents. If they already had government documents, where is the need for Aadhaar asks Praveen Dalal.

Secondly, Aadhaar is based upon the incorrect assumption that biometric is unique and safe. Truth is that biometric is neither unique nor safe inform Praveen Dalal. Many Aadhaar have been generated in India by single person on multiple occasions by tricking the biometric system. Further, once the biometric is compromised, you cannot change it forever unlike a disposable password.

Thirdly, Indian government itself is not capable of biometric authentication of even a small segment of people. That is why they are asking for paper copies of Aadhaar for verification instead of biometric authentication.

Both paper based Aadhaar cards and their biometric can be faked easily that is why criminals and terrorists have multiple Aadhaar. This has posed a national security threat to India that Indian government is ignoring right now.

Fourthly, government has been lying about 119 crore Aadhaar enrollments. Truth is that Aadhaar is not even 50% enrolled and even by government’s own faulty standards Aadhaar is not a unique identity.

Doubts about uniqueness were raised long before by many Twitter handles of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO). In fact, UIDAI or government has no mechanism to detect duplicacy of biometric of Aadhaar in its system. Next time if UIDAI and government say Aadhaar is a unique ID, tell them to stop lying now as their lie has been caught and myth of uniqueness busted by P4LO.
