Aadhaar or Nightmare?
2017 has witnessed so many phenomenas which gripped the nation like from demonetization and GST, to link things (SIM cards, bank accounts, mobile number, pan card and etc.) to another Aadhaar.

Mera Aadhaar, Meri Pehchan’ the national identity card of every citizen, but somewhere are aadhar and pehchan both in the danger.
According to reports, “The Tribune ‘bought’ a set being offered by unknown traders over WhatsApp that gave unlimited access to details for any of the more than one billion Aadhaar numbers created in India thus far.”
Tribune further reported, “the journalist got access to the Aadhaar database of more than a billion Indians for just ₹500, paid through Paytm. Moreover, within 10 minutes of making the payment, the ‘agent’ of the group running the racket created a ‘gateway’ providing access to all personal details of an individual linked to Aadhaar along with a login ID and password.”
