Make Ac­cess to Data Stricter

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘En­act Strong Pri­vacy Pro­tec­tion Law’ (Feb 27), three months into of­fice and the PM got to grips with the ru­ral face of In­dia that was bat­tling with va­garies of na­ture and was quick to re­alise the need to con­tinue MNREGA and re­lated schemes and link them with an Aad­haar-driven de­liv­ery. The same pur­pose and de­ter­mi­na­tion now need to be ap­plied to safe­guard Aad­haar data. It is equally im­por­tant to evolve an au­tho­rised sys­tem of bar-coded ac­cess to data that specif­i­cally iden­ti­fies the ac­quirer. This should pre­clude much of mal-in­ten­tion/mis­use.
