The UIDAI on Tuesday said nobody can make ghost entries into the Aadhaar database, dismissing reports that unique identification database was hacked.
In an official statement, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) stressed that its system cannot be bypassed while refuting all suggestions of its software and ID database being purportedly compromised.
Such claims "lack substance and are baseless", it said.
No operator can make or update Aadhaar unless an individual gives biometrics details, debunking reports that Aadhaar software was being purportedly hacked.
Referring to a news report of Aadhaar enrolment software being allegedly hacked, the UIDAI statement claimed that "certain vested interests are deliberately trying to create confusion in the minds of people which is completely unwarranted".
The UIDAI said that it matches all the biometric — 10 fingerprints and both iris — of a resident enrolling for Aadhaar with the biometrics of all Aadhaar holders before issuing an Aadhaar, and so the claims of introducing information into Aadhaar database were "completely unfounded".
