A rant on Aadhaar
Kiran Jonnalagadda

Thanks sir for the article.

I share your apprehensions on sharing my identity with a covert powerful institution as the Government of India but I still dont think that you have driven home the negative impact that Aadhar can have on behavioral tendencies of the sample whose data is shared and acted upon for marketing or targeting purposes. All the objections we have at present are on a very superficial level like a Science fiction movie script while the opposition has a very strong financial savings argument to tilt the cost-benefit equation in their favor. I guess you know that already that’s why you have given this article the nomenclature of a rant.

If you can supply credible info about the failure rate of bio metric identification and the onerous procedure afterwards in comparison to the present systems of public distribution it will be a great supplementary support to your argument

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
