February 9, 2012
The Unique Identification Number scheme or Aadhaar, has been the object of much attention in the recent past. It has been projected as a scheme that is "pro-poor", and that will help reduce corruption and leakages in public programmes. However, it has also drawn strong criticism from several who claim that it is a project that makes exaggerated claims, and have raised concerns about issues to do with wastage of public money, exclusion and privacy. In this talk, two people who have extensively examined this project, will discuss some of these concerns.
