We don't trust UID with our data: India Inc

Shweta Rao | Jan. 18, 2012
The government is likely to sort out differences between the home ministry and Planning Commission over data collection for UID cards this week.

Application level security is another major concern. "My problem as an Indian citizen--once the UID project starts collecting biometric data everywhere--is how would we prove our disassociation with a wrong UID and a crime we have not committed?" asks Deshpande.

While the cabinet decides the fate of the government's ambitious UID project, it seems like Indian CISOs have already written its destiny. The question now remains -- Do you trust the government with your data?
