Lok Sabha Passes Bill To Link Aadhaar With Electoral Roll Data

The government has planned to link the electoral roll data with Aadhaar as the Lok Sabha passed the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill 2021, on December 20. It was presented by Law Minister Kiren Rijiju and passed by a voice vote. However, it was passed amid the uproar in the house by opposition members over the Lakhimpur Kheri violence issue. Rijiju said that it'll make the election system more transparent.

Aadhaar Data Breach Allegation On Puducherry BJP Credible: Madras HC

The Madras High Court on April 1 held that BJP’s Puducherry unit breached and misused Aadhaar data in its election campaign. Listening to a PIL, the HC confirmed that BJP sent campaign-related messages to only Aadhaar-linked mobile numbers. While the BJP’s Puducherry unit and UIDAI has denied using and lending numbers for political use, the court ordered the Aadhaar regulatory body to answer why the data breach was not avoided.
