How Aadhaar Makes Identity Fraud Much Easier - Alankit LTD

by Shreya Dixit Manager Head
In independent studies, it has been noted the Aadhaar card is easy to forge, and the number of cases related to Aadhaar has risen over the years. This makes people doubt the Aadhaar system in general, and the Unique Identification may not be unique after all. India system of Social Security is flawed with the fact that its systems have been hacked over and over and any miscreant can get your information without much effort. They are then used for carrying out land transfers, procuring passports, getting loans, casting votes, obtaining other IDs, siphoning off ration grains, etc. These also include cases of identity theft, with the information anyone can forge an identity card and make use of your identity to as he, please. In most places, a scam has landed an innocent in a mess that is hectic to clear and can make life miserable for one stuck in the scam even with the fault of his own. This comes as a shock to people as it was supposed to be one of the things that fixed identity theft.

Benefits of Aadhar Card

While most of the cases involved insignificant a staggering 33% were related to criminal rackets affiliated to severe crimes. Most of the forgeries were of Aadhaar numbers with the other half being rudimentary forgery methods like pasting photos on top of originals. In rural areas, there have been cases of multiple people having the same biometric details which makes us question the whole process data collection corrupt officials and on ground personnel have rendered the entire Aadhaar process worthless and can be said to be abysmal at best. It is in the country’s best interest to pay more heed to data entry and protection, or else the Aadhaar will like the multiple Ganga Bachao Andolan.
