Make Access to Data Stricter
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.
