High Court Issues Notice To UIDAI For Wrong Information Printed On Aadhaar

Ferozepur-based runaway couple requrested a plea in the court seeking parents and relatives as the two wedded against their wishes. Hearing the case on February 19 Justice Amol Rattan Singh found the age of the girl printed on Aadhaar Card was not the same as an earlier affidavit received along with a petition. More to this, the date of birth mentioned in the affidavit differed from that of school register.

The court has ordered Punjab Police to look into the matter why age of the girl is wrongly printed on the Aadhaar Card.

The order was issued on Tuesday by Justice Amol Rattan Singh and it reads, “It is being seen by this Court in such like matters that Aadhaar Cards are produced in Court giving therein dates of birth, some of which are found to be incorrect. Consequently, the Director / Deputy Director/ Head of Institution of the Unique Identification Authority of India, Regional Centre, Chandigarh, is ordered to be implemented as respondent no.11.”

Meanwhile, in another case UIDAI has dismissed report of Aadhaar data breach saying there is no truth in the story of ZDNet.
