There is nothing surprising. The very same method of finger print faking was demonstrated ere the Parliamentary Standing Committee that studied #Aadhar in 2011. @UIDAI knew this is possible. Biometrics is the least secure password of all (1/n)
Nobody with minimum understanding of / concern about security or privacy would plan a project like this.
and all those in power who decided to implement such a dangerous project like #Aadhaar , without any study or cost benfit analysis should be held accountable.
A project of this magnitude that infringe on various fundamental rights including privacy, right to equality, right to life etc was implemented unconstitutionaly without any legilation or approval from #Parliament
It was implemented by an executive order of the planning Commission. Planning commission to my knowledge is an advisory body. Havent heard of it being an implementing agency of any project before.
Obviously, planning commission had no infrastructure or manpower or mechanism to implement such massive project. So they outsourced it all to private agancies with know knowledge or expertise or accountability.
Now they have blacklisted at least 50,000 such agencies. Nobody knows how many fake enrolments were done by these agencies. There is no way to ascertain. The entire #Aadhaar database is unaudited. No mechanism to check the veracity of info.
The technology-biometrics, is an inherently fallible technology. It is probablistic. Fundamental rights and security of the country is left to permutations and combinations of a half baked system of algorithms over which we have no control
Fingerprints and iris system can be duped very easily. And once the data is lost, it is lost forever. None can change their Fingerprint and iris like email-passwords or debit card PIN.
The only way out is to #DestroyTheAadhaar
Otherwise it will render even the Crime Investigation mechanism invalid, with all criminals implanting innocent people's biometrics all around the crime-scene.

AG told the Supreme Court that they did a proof of the concept study before launching #Aadhaar project in rural India. This is outright lie.
#Aadhaar was launched in Tmbhli village in Maharashtra in 2009 by issuing first Aadhaar letter to Ranjana Sonawane, a poor tribal woman. That is the project started in rural India

The Proof of The Concept Report came out in 2010 only. A year after the project started. AG loed in the court. (3/10)

If we take into account the amount we spen don AADHAAR and the amount various irganisations are still spending and the charges for each and evey verification process at retail stage, the profit will be negative. (7/n)
Having seen that #Aadhaar is not feasible technologically or economically. We will move to Rights. I have another thread explaining how Aadhaar violates Universal Declaration of Human Rights here
Since, #Aadhaar involves mandatory collection of biometric and demographic data, and its centralised storage, it essentially involves the question of #Privacy . Especially in country where there are no Data protection frameworks.
