The confidential data collected by the UIDAI can be shared on court orders,particularly in cases related to national security

uiBangalore: The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) can also share information with the security agencies if needed for investigations, UIDAI Deputy Director General Ashok Dalwai said.

Dalwai said though the data collected by the UIDAI is confidential, it can be shared on the basis of court orders and particularly for cases relating to national security.

Delivering his keynote address at the valedictory session at the all-India conference of Directors of Fingerprint Bureaus in Bangalore, he said there have been several instances in the recent past when the UIDAI has helped police from Delhi, Mumbai and Rajasthan in probing cases.

Citing an example, Dalwai said a Rajasthan police team, armed with the court order, had sought help to trace a suspect and the victim of a kidnap case.

The UIDAI, which has data pertaining to 32 crore citizens, was able to provide details of the victim, but not of the accused. “The accused had not registered with us,” he said.
