Dear fellow citizen Know about the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) ?  Thought not but I am sure you know about the Aadhar Card that is slowly and surely being made compulsory by all arms of government and slowly the private sector too. Are you one of the majority of the population who like sheep blindly obey any "official" looking request and comply without ever thinking or questioning about who, how, why and under what authority the request is made? Are you aware that the UIDIA does NOT HAVE ANY LEGAL BASIS IN LAW? No BILL Has been passed in Parliament?  In fact the Bill to give statutory status to the UIDAI was roundly rejected by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance in December 2011. The Parliamentary Committee recommended that both the Bill and the UID project be sent back to the drawing board. There has been no effort since to reintroduce the Bill. For example do you know how your data is going to be used? Have you been informed that the data being collected  the government is not the owner of the data, or of the database; nor what the legal status of the ownership by the UIDAI will mean for the citizen/resident. "Data is the new oil" and by that status UIDIA Chairman Nilenkani is a snake oil salesman. So far, he has refused to engage in a constructive manner and answer these and other misgivings about the project. Time to call him to account and get him to clarify all the reasons and true purpose of the UID/Aadhar card. Your voice will make a difference. Sign the petition.
