Cabinet may take final call on future of UIDAI
The Home Ministry feels the data collected by UIDAI is not secure as it is not verified by a government servant.
New Delhi: The Cabinet Committee is likely to meet on Friday to take the final decision on the proposal to give statutory powers to Nandan Nilekani-led UIDAI to issue national identity cards to the entire population instead of the mandated 200 million.
The collection of biometric data for the UIDs has also sparked a row - with both the Home Ministry and the UIDAI authorised to collect data. However, Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia has thrown his weight behind the Nilekani's UIDAI.
Home Minister P Chidambaram has sought clarity on the status on who will capture bio-metric data - RGI or UIDAI. The Home Ministry feels the data collected by UIDAI is not secure as it is not verified by a government servant.
The data collection by UIDAI has been done by hired organisations which is a cause of concern for the Home Minister.
