Scrutinizing the counter Aadhaar crusades by non-legislative associations and common society gatherings, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India's (TRAI) Chairman R S Sharma, who is additionally the previous Director General of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), said that different multinational organizations were being influenced by Aadhaar as it was in struggle with their endeavors to make their own database of clients. 

"It's making a mountain out of a molehill. There are spurred battles being propelled. Different multinationals are getting influenced. There are organizations, which are making their own particular characters. Somebody has called it computerized colonization. The unique mark scanners on cell phones can be effortlessly utilized for confirming Aadhaar yet they don't permit it. A ton of fake or benami exchanges can go down in view of Aadhaar," Sharma revealed to The Indian Express. While he declined to expound on these multinationals, the comments are an evident reference to Silicon Valley goliaths, for example, Facebook and Google. 

Sharma's comments come when common society bunches have hailed genuine worries on issues, for example, protection and responsibility that emerge from the Center's expanding utilization of Aadhaar. A grasp of petitions documented by those restricting what they call the unchecked utilization of Aadhaar is as of now in the Supreme Court. 

As of late, a Bengaluru-based NGO — Center for Internet and Society (CIS) — discharged a report proposing 130 million Aadhaar numbers were spilled on government entrances. CIS later refreshed its answer to state that there were no "holes" or "spillages" yet an "open revelation". The UIDAI served a show-make see CIS, requesting that it clarify its cases.

In today's carefully associated world, information assurance law is an absolute necessity. Information security, its conventions, rules, duties, accountabilities, harm, installments, remunerations, every one of these issues must come in that law," he said. 

"Aadhaar Act, itself, is extremely independent, which considers all information insurance and security issues," Sharma stated, including that protection was a social idea. "Protection is a culture particular idea, which they are attempting to import here. Aside from NGOs, has any individual or needy individual whined, or recorded a case about protection?" he inquired. 

In a current meeting to The Indian Express, Minister of Law and Justice and Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad had attempted to relieve fears of any escape clauses in the Aadhaar security framework and said "this efficient crusade against Aadhaar comes as an astonishment for me". He said that the voter ID data was additionally openly space, yet "I don't perceive any crusade there".
