Indian gov’t says it won’t link Aadhaar to national security database

The Indian government has stated that it will not link its Aadhaar biometric identification scheme with its national intelligence databases.
Ravi Shankar Prasad, India’s Minister of Law and Justice, told the parliament on Monday: “Let me assure the house that Aadhaar’s linking with NATGRID is not there.”
Aadhaar is the 12-digit unique identification number issued by the Indian government to every individual resident of India. The Aadhaar project aims to provide a single, unique identifier which captures all the demographic and biometric details of every Indian resident. At last count, over 1.1 billion people out of India’s population of 1.27 billion have been registered in the Aadhaar database.
The program, governed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), is currently used to authenticate delivery of social services including school attendance, natural gas subsidies to India’s rural poor, and direct wage payments to bank accounts. The system also provides identification to people who do not have birth certificates.
