    New ruling was out yesterday which states that we can get a new Sim using other kyc documents like driving license, voter card etc.

    What about linking it with voter card? Oh wait the government won't want it to happen.

    It doesn't matter much as biggest issue related to voter cards is illegal immigrants(like in north east & Bengal) which is irrelevant for Aadhaar because Aadhaar is meant for removing duplicate/fictitious identities but voter card basis is citizenship which can not be determined by biometrics.

    No loss of votes as Aadhaar can not be used to confirm citizenship,only loss of public confidence because of possible rumors that "govt trying to track who give vote to whom using aadhaar".

    If aadhar gets linked to the voter card, then ideally all fake/duplicate votes/voters should disappear.

    I finally got myself enrolled.

    I really do not see it as a security threat, now. It was really low quality biometrics. I'm surprised the system is working at all. 4 of my fingers did not even register, despite repeated attempts.

    Just the resolution, of eyes, face and fingerprints. Expected it to be much higher.

    ^^Resolution is good enough for matching most of the times.Only in extreme cases like worn out fingerprints due to hard manual labour or old age,chances of error are there.

    I doubt, for example, even if the actual database is hacked, anyone would be able to 3D print fingers that can fool other bio-metric authentication devices

    Who says you need 3d models,a good enough 2d image printed on a thin sheet is enough(that's how apple touchID was bypassed). As for why one would hack Aadhaar database when with that same capability one could hack Indian defence networks is,well,another thing.
