The UIDAI on Tuesday said that no operator can make or update Aadhaar unless an individual gives biometrics details, debunking reports that Aadhaar software was being purportedly hacked.
In an official statement, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said that such claims “lack substance and are baseless”. Earlier this day Aadhaar software was hacked and it gave database access at just Rs 2,500.
“UIDAI further clarified that no operator can make or update Aadhaar unless resident himself give his biometric,” the nodal body said. “Therefore it is not possible to introduce ghost entries into Aadhaar database,” UIDAI statement said.
