Aadhaar agency blacklisted for 10 years after posting MS Dhoni’s private information on Twitter.
MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi, had brought the violation to Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s notice.
The director of the UIA of India reportedly said it had immediately blacklisted the agency that had leaked former Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni’s Aadhaar details, for 10 years. Ajay Bhushan Pandey said an investigation had been launched into the matter and strict actions will be taken after its completion.
On Tuesday, Dhoni’s wife Sakshi had brought the trespass to Information and Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s notice on Twitter after e-governance firm Common Services Center shared the cricketer’s personal Aadhaar details on the social media platform which was really shameful on the company’s part.
The CSC tweeted that, “Ace Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his family get their Aadhaar updated at VLE Mariya Farooqui’s CSE at Ranchi, Jharkhand”, according to NDTV. Prasad was tagged in the tweet, which was having a photograph of MS dhoni with a CSC representative and personal information of Dhoni on the Aadhaar website. The post was later deleted.
Sakshi Dhoni had brought the violation in light to the Union minister’s notice after he shared an image of MS Dhoni signing up for an Aadhaar card. “Is there any privacy left? Information of Adhaar card, including application, is made public property,” she reportedly said. The minister, unaware of the agency’s actions, said in response that, “No it is not a public property. Does this Tweet divulge any personal information?” After she explained the matter to him, Prasad assured her of “serious action” and satisfactory result.
After deleting the first post, CSC later posted the same image of MS Dhoni on Twitter, saying, “Former India cricket captain MD Dhoni updated his Aadhaar details with a home visit by a CSC VLE. A fan moment for Ahsan Ali.”
After the strict action of blacklisting the company the accuse may let this go now.
