Aadhaar data safe, not being sold: Prasad

There has not been a single case of data breach from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) database, the government said today, claiming that a recent report about Aadhaar data being sold was “completely false”.

Replying to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Minister of Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad asserted that the Aadhaar data was fully safe and secure.

“UIDAI, for the purpose of grievance handling, has provided a search facility to state government officials, which provide demographic information of the person whose enrolment ID or Aadhaar is provided. The reported case was a misuse of the said facility,” Prasad said.
