The Centre will soon begin Linking driving license with Aadhaar. IT and Electronics Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said this move will stop the menace of licensing with Connect Aadhaar.
“I’ve already had a word with Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari along with also the procedure to connect Aaadhar card corrections online with driving license could be put into motion shortly,” he explained.
Referring to the discussion about the Safety of Aadhaar information, Prasad explained the biometric data, including iris scan and fingerprints, is saved in an encrypted form and is quite secure.
“If you examine the physical card, then it’s my photo, says I am a person who has my own permanent Patna speech in the back. It doesn’t have details such as names of health documents or my parents, caste, religion, educational qualification income. Not one of the matters by which you may be redeemed are cited on the Aadhar card download,” he explained.
He added that “Aadhaar is an electronic identity” which affirms the bodily identity with the assistance of biometrics and there are laws set up to test against unauthorized use of Aadhaar.
