Will Parliament Of India Make UIDAI Constitutional ?
Posted on July 26, 2010 by Gunjan Singh
The unique identification project of India (UID Project of India) or Aadhar project of India and the unique identification authority of India (UIDAI) are not governed by any law. Still crores of money has been spent upon this project guidelines” for UIDAI and nothing more.
According to the “constitutional analysis” made by Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of Perry4Law, the proposed Bill by Nandan Nilekani still is not enough to take Aadhar project and UIDAI out of the ambit of unconstitutionality and illegality.
Of course, the Parliament of India may consider this Bill in the current winter session (July-August 2010) and may remove the “unconstitutional elements” of UID Project of India/Aadhar Project of India and UIDAI.
However, the current position is that both UIDAI and Aadhar project are unconstitutional and illegal and the government must give very strong and exceptionally justification before the Parliament of India to justify the crores it spent upon this project. It would be a real shame if the Parliament of India let government escapes with this unconstitutional, illegal and unreasonable spending without any explanation.
