All you need to know about Aadhaar Data Vault



Recently there have been numerous instances of Aadhaar data being exposed online by various agencies. Over 130 millions aadhaar data and bank account details leaked from the government website. According to aadhaar regulations sharing, circulating or publishing of aadhaar number is restricted. To enhance the security of Aadhaar numbers, UIDAI has introduced the “Aadhaar Data Vault". Aadhaar Data Vault is a centralized storage for all the Aadhaar numbers collected by the AUAs/KUAs/Sub-AUAs/ or any other agency for specific purposes.

Benefits of linking Aadhaar with PAN



Recently, the Indian Government introduced Section 139AA in the Income Tax (IT) Act by the course of the latest yearly budget and the Finance Act 2017. Under this act, quoting the Aadhaar number in the PAN application form or income tax return (ITR) form after July 1, 2017, has been made mandatory for everyone.
All existing PAN holders are expected to notify the IT department their Aadhaar number before the stipulated date.
All PANs that are not linked with Aadhaar number will be rendered invalid after July 1, 2017.
While there have been petitions against this move in the Apex Court calling it ‘totalitarian’ and an ‘electronic leash’ on the Indian citizens, the merits of linking Aadhaar number with the PAN cannot be ignored altogether.
