    Congrats . You can show your aadhaar if anybody accuses you being Anti-National and say "Choke on this Madaf***".
    :D Link everything under the sun to your aadhaar.

    hahaha yeah I guess I have to stop linking, but strangely enough, stopped getting prompts for that after actually getting the number

    so If I throw a wrapper or plastic bottle on the road, theoretically, they can trace that litter back to me?

    Very soon. Because your DNA is on that and there can be a database linking it to your Aadhaar.

    Too much scifi thoughts,dna is in a league of its own.Forget about dna database in India where even a few thousand criminal cases investigation results in 8-9 months of waiting time for dna tests.

    When we have DNA linking / scanning tech here, other countries would be living on other planets by then having interstellar travel tech. :p

    Okay, I am fundamentally against aadhaar because of the human rights concerns, like this guy who posted the challenge can get identified as a child molester if the database has been shared for crime fighting, which has happened in goa - but it was not a false positive.

    But, in this case, he is totally winning, you have to understand where the government is coming from here
    there is no personal data protection regime
    privacy laws are also a little iffy
    their stand is that personal details available to the public does not really hurt anyone, like gov.in filetype:xls aadhaar, pan, names, addresses, phone numbers etc is no big deal
    pls do not google that and download stuff

    they are winning the argument absolutely, irrespective of what media or agencies say. In that sense, this is an absolutely solid demonstration.

    Anyone wanting to fight, siphon off the money from his bank accounts.

    That number has been switched off by the way.

    The challenge was issued almost at the same time as the submission of the Srikrishna Committee Report, which is a draft of the proposed data protection bill
    coincidence?

    Let's wait for facts to emerge because it is still yet to be proved that all those details came out only because of Aadhaar.A good enough hacker can also get all these details with or without Aadhaar number so for such people this issue is irrelevant. Only issue is whether some tom/dick/harry sitting in some small office of a contractor company linked to processing of aadhaar related verification also able to do this same thing which is indeed worrisome.

    Maybe the hackers should post the transactions of his bank account, which is linked with Aadhaar.
