Central Government is in the last phase of finalizing the proposal of amendment to the Central government Base Act. After this modification, all citizens will be given the option of withdrawing their Aadhaar number, including biometrics and data.
Aadhaar Cardholders may soon get the freedom to surrender their Aadhaar number. Now if the citizen can get rid of the base forever. According to media reports, the central government is in the last phase of finalizing the proposal of amendment to the Aadhaar Act. After this modification, all citizens will be given the option of withdrawing their Aadhaar number, including biometrics and data.
According to the proposal, users’ data will also be deleted forever after have their name from the Aadhaar card. Full data of users and biometrics are then used when a person enrols themselves for the basis. The Hindu news is being followed by the Supreme Court’s decision in September.
The Supreme Court had scrapped the inevitability of the Aadhaar card with certain conditions in its judgement. However, with some things, the validity of the base was retained. Supreme Court benches cancelled Section 57 of the Base Act, forcing private companies to give Aadhaar numbers in the name of verification. The bench also believed that the obligation to add Aadhaar numbers to bank accounts and SIM cards is unconstitutional.
The initial proposal was prepared by India’s Distinguished Identification Authority (UIDAI). It said that once the child is 18 years old, it will be given 6 months to determine whether or not he or she wants to withdraw the Aadhaar number. The proposal was sent to the Ministry of Law. The Ministry further recommended that all citizens be provided with the option to withdraw Aadhaar numbers and not be limited to any particular group.
While the proposal which will now be sent to the cabinet will benefit only those who do not have pan cards because the court retains Pan’s relationship with the base. Let’s say that more than 37.50 crores have been released on March 12, 2018. The number of pan cards issued to the people has exceeded 36.54 crores, of which 16.84 crores are linked to the pan base.
According to the court order, the proposal seeks to appoint an election official to decide whether or not to disclose data pertaining to an individual’s basis in the interest of national security. The court was referring to section 33(2) stating that the Joint secretary was allowed to disclose the base information on an official order below for national security reasons. The court was told that an official above the joint Secretary should consult the judicial officer and take steps about this.
