UIDAI introduces Virtual ID for Aadhaar-card holders
UIDAI introduces Virtual ID for Aadhaar-card holders
Latest india news Journalists express solidarity with Tribune reporter for Aadhaar expose
13 January, 2018, 03:25
As the Aadhaar debate takes a tumultuous turn, especially after the investigative report by The Tribune showing the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) database admin rights on sale for as little as Rs 500, two developments shed a serious light on the possible course of events. Virtual ID will therefore not attack the root of the problem.
Bharti Airtel did not comment on UIDAI's order pertaining to its payments banking arm, but one of the persons cited above said "status quo had been maintained" in so far as Airtel Payment Bank goes. However, his tweet, showing an image of his Aadhaar card, still carried the QR code that was enough for those with basic tech expertise to decode his demographic details, his bank account numbers, and other sensitive information. It may be recalled that Airtel used the e-KYC Aadhaar verification process to open payments bank accounts without consent of users. For an authentication request by agencies, UIDAI will send a UID Token, which is a specific number that will remain the same for a specific agency but will be different for different entities.
The Aadhaar-issuing body will start accepting the "Virtual ID" from March 1, 2018.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has also introduced the concept of "limited KYC" under which it will only provide need-based or limited details of a user to an authorised agency that is providing a particular service, say, a telco. Commenting on the matter, the UIDAI also said that the Virtual IDs will reduce the collection of Aadhaar numbers by different government agencies. The UIDAI will also set a minimum validity period for Virtual ID and the users would be able to replace their ID from time to time. For any given Aadhaar number there will only be one active VID at any given time. Pandey added that in case service providers resort to unscrupulous means of retrieving the Aadhaar number, they will be conducting a "criminal offence" and will be punished by the law.
"Aadhaar holder can use the Virtual ID in lieu of Aadhaar number whenever authentication or KYC services are performed".
"Aadhaar is here to stay!"
"What about all the databases that are already linked up with our Aadhaar number?"
UIDAI has been under the radar of various media agencies for some time now.
Earlier this month, a report in The Tribune alleged Aadhaar data can be accessed through WhatsApp for a fee. The "Virtual ID' (VID) will be a 16-digit, randomly-generated number which can be used for authentication instead of the original Aadhaar number, according to UIDAI".
