Aadhar Finally Asked People Not To Disclose Their Number Publicly. Gets Badly Trolled By People

People are busy with Kiki challenge recently but apart from that, TRAI chief’s Aadhaar No challenge is also intensifying day by day.

TRAI chief RS Sharma had published his Aadhaar No. publicly on Twitter. He had further posed a challenge for people to harm him if possible. He had tweeted-

After this tweet by him, the social media went berserk and people started sending him his personal details. This kind of proved the fact that sharing Aadhar No with people can be dangerous.

Later, TRAI chief’s daughter also received a threatening email and things started getting even more intense.

After so much has happened, the official Twitter handle of Aadhaar announced that people should not share their number publicly and it can be dangerous. In multiple tweets, they wrote-

#PressStatement
People are advised to refrain from publicly putting their Aadhaar numbers on internet and social media and posing challenges to others. 1/n

This advisory has come with reference to some news items appearing on social media reporting few people publicly posting their Aadhaar numbers on internet and social media and posing challenges to others. 2/n

Such activities are uncalled for and should be refrained as these are not in accordance with the law. Aadhaar is a unique identity which can be authenticated to prove one’s identity for various services, benefits and subsidies. 3/n

In our regular media campaigns, we have been consistently making people aware not to display or publish or share their Aadhaar number in public domain.
We emphasise that people should not display or publish their Aadhaar number in public. 4/n

Aadhaar number is personally sensitive information like bank account number, passport number, PAN number, etc., which should be strictly shared only on a need basis for a legitimate use for establishing identity and for legitimate transactions. 5/n

Also, as per the Aadhaar Act, 2016 and IT (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011 and Justice Srikrishna’s proposed Data Protection Bill, personally sensitive information should not be published or shared publicly. 6/n

Indiscriminate and unwanted publication of any personally sensitive information whether Aadhaar or any other, may render the concerned person vulnerable and, therefore, should be avoided. 7/n

Also, it is advised that doing Aadhaar authentication through somebody else’s Aadhaar number or using someone else’s Aadhaar number for any purpose may amount to impersonation and thereby a criminal offence under the Aadhaar Act and Indian Penal Code. 8/n

Any person indulging in such acts or abetting or inciting others to do so makes themselves liable for prosecution and penal action under the law. Therefore people should refrain from such acts. 9/9

After these tweets came out people started trolling Aadhaar badly. Have a look at some reactions-
