Aadhaar card, PAN card link, Finance Ministry, Supreme Court The deadline to link Aadhaar for availing social schemes has been extended till December.

Aadhaar card PAN card link: The Finance Ministry is expected to decide on Thursday whether to extend the deadline to link Aadhaar card with PAN card. As per PTI,  the Aadhar matter is with the Supreme Court and the next date of hearing is in November. The deadline to link Aadhaar for availing social schemes has been extended till December. “The government will decide tomorrow if the deadline for PAN-Aadhaar linking will be extended,” the agency quoted as source as saying.

As per the report, the Section 139 AA (2) of the Income Tax Act says that every person with PAN as on July 1, 2017, and is eligible for Aadhaar must provide his Aadhaar number to tax authorities. However, those who have categorised as Non-Resident Indians as per income tax norms, Those who are not Indian citizens, those who are above 80 years of age and residents of Meghalaya, Assam and Jammu and Kashmir had been exempt from the requirement.

On July 31, the tax department said that that “unless a finding is made that Aadhaar is constitutionally not valid, tax return filers will need to link their PAN with Aadhaar by August 31, 2017,” the PTI report said. According to the agency, December 31 is also the deadline for the people to link their bank accounts with Aadhaar. It said that Tax filers, however, were permitted to file their annual income returns by August 5 without linking  Aadhaar with PAN. It added that “income tax returns filed will not be processed should tax filers fail to link Aadhaar and PAN on or before August 31, 2017“.

Earlier, the Centre had told the Supreme Court that it was extending deadline for quoting Aadhaar in welfare schemes till the end of this year. The deadline to connect PAN with Aadhaar earlier was July 31, but was extended to August 31, PTI said.

    A centralized and inter-linked biometric database like Aadhaar will lead to profiling and self-censorship, endangering freedom. Personal data gathered under the Aadhaar program is prone to misuse and surveillance. A centralized and interlinked database can lead to commercial abuse. Aadhaar project has created a vulnerability to identi-ty fraud, even identi-ty theft. Easy harvesting of biometrics traits and publicly-available Aadhaar numbers increase the risk of impersonation, especially online and banking fraud. Centralized databases can be hacked. Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, biometrics can be faked. High-resolution cameras can capture fingerprints and iris information from a distance. You can change your password if it is compromised. But if someone gets a copy of your biometric data, which can be used for authentication, what would you do?

      Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, BIOMETRICS CAN BE FAKED. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. So another person can clone your fingerprints and iris images without your knowledge, and the same can be used for authentication. If the Aadhaar scheme is NOT STOPPED by the Supreme Court, the biometric features of Indians will soon be cloned, misused, and even traded.

            UK’s Biometric ID Database was dismantled. Why the United Kingdom's biometrics-linked National Ident-ity Card project to create a centralized register of sensitive information about residents similar to Aadhaar was scrapped in 2010??? The reasons were the massive threat posed to the privacy of people, the possibility of a surveillance state, the dangers of maintaining such a huge centralized repository of sensitive information, and the purposes it could be used for, and the dangers of such a centralized database being hacked. The other reasons were the unreliability of such a large-scale biometric verification processes, and the ethics of using biometric identification.

              The US Social Security Number (SSN) has no biometric details, no photograph, no physical description and no birth date. All it does is confirm that a particular number has been issued to a particular name. Instead, a driver's license or state ID card is used as an identification for adults. The US government does not collect the biometric details of its own citizens.

                The US government DOES NOT collect the biometric details of its own citizens for the purpose of issuing Social Security Number. The US collects the fingerprints of only those citizens who are involved in any criminal activity (it has nothing to do with SSN), and the citizens of other countries who come to the US.

                The privacy laws of the United States deal with several different legal concepts. One is the invasion of privacy, a tort based in common law allowing an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into his or her private affairs, discloses his or her private information, publicizes him or her in a false light, or appropriates his or her name for personal gain. The essence of the law derives from a right to privacy, defined broadly as "the right to be let alone."
