Privacy a fundamental right? Here are 5 concerns with Aadhaar

This article discusses privacy concerns related to Aadhaar. Specifically, it discusses concerns around data security, “personal integrity” from having to share personal information with both public and private sector agents; “bodily integrity” from having to share fingerprints and iris scans as part of the registration process; potential for profiling that a centralized database linked through Aadhaar numbers may allow; and enabling mining of personal and biographical data while safeguards are still absent to protect against inappropriate uses.
