A private firm, IT Grid (India), was recently accused of obtaining personal details of 7.82 crore Aadhaar holders in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for Telugu Desam Party's Seva Mitra App. This case took a new twist the other day with reports of UIDAI of approaching the Police saying that its data has been hacked.
However, UIDAI has refuted reports claiming breach of its servers in the latest case of Aadhaar data leak. UIDAI's complaint is about IT Grids (India) Pvt. Ltd has allegedly obtained and stored Aadhaar numbers of a large number of people in violation of the provisions of the Aadhaar Act.
It is illegal if the data is used for any other purpose except for the purpose it is collected. Buzz is that Narendra Modi Government may have saved Chandrababu Naidu in this case by clarifying that Aadhar Database is not hacked. There are questions everywhere about Aadhar Data Safety and not to give a chance to showcase Aadhar vulnerable, UIDAI admitted that there is no hack.
