This is a very embarassing situation for the Central Govt. I had already written to Mr. Nilekani about the refusal of the Airtel authorities to treat my Aadhaar card as a valid proof of address proof. There has been no response. What is baffling is that a huge amount has already gone out of govt coffers without any legal sanction, as is averred. And the persons in charge do not appear to be bothered.
Yes, Aadhaar is a very good project from the Indian Govt. I do appreciate efforts made for it. We all should take interest in this new project as it is a beneficial scheme for the people of India.
Aadhaar is just another glaring example of ill conceived plans by the current political leadership. The authority lacks a legal backing relying solely on Executive authority. Data at the ground level suggests a lack of foresight and clear objectives for the project. Although the govt. would have the country believe otherwise, trial runs to test the feasibility of aadhaar based delivery of subsidies including PDS and LPG cylinders, have thrown up implementation problems that need immediate addressal. So much so that oil companies have refuse to continue trial runs, and have in certain instances shelved the trials, resorting to earlier means of subsidy. The same can be said about plans to tie up Aadhaar with the flagship NREGA program. Please refer to http://aadhararticles.blogspot.in/ for detailed articles on aadhaar and the various problems the project has thrown up which are being swept under the carpet with the govt. allocating increased funds to the organisation. Also, the elevation of Mr. Nilekani to the rank and status of a Cabinet Minister as the chairman of UIDAI is indicative of the vested political interests in the project that is claimed to solve half the problems right from Security (link with NPR) to subsidies.
