Aadhaar is Constitutionaly Valid
It is better to be unique than the best. Because,
being the best makes you the number one, but
being unique makes you the only one.
The Supreme Court on 26.09.2018 upheld the Constitutional validity of Aadhaar. The Court said that sufficient security measures are taken to protect data and it is difficult to launch surveillance on citizens on the basis of Aadhaar. The Court said that no metadata to be stored in current form.
The Apex Court said there is a fundamental difference between Aadhaar and other identity proof as Aadhar cannot be duplicated and it is unique identification.
The constitutional validity of Aadhaar was challenged by on ground that it violated the right to privacy of citizens. The petitioners also argued that the Aadhaar project could become a tool for mass surveillance by the state. The Government however argued that Aadahr will help weed out ghost beneficiaries of welfare schemes.

The judgement strikes down Section 57 of Aadhaar Act, 2016, which says private body corporates can seek Aadhaar data. Says it’s unconstitutional.
