“Na Na Na”, said the government, “I Cannot Hear You Standing Committee”

A committee of MPs has questioned the budget’s endorsement of the Aadhaar project despite the panel’s rejection of a draft law which sought to give it legal backing. The 31-member Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance, chaired by former finance minister Yashwant Sinha, has asked the government to explain the proposed increase in budgetary allocations to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) steered by Infosys founder Nandan Nilekani.

Another update on the UIDAI by my friend Vikas and me, in the wake of the report by the standing committee on finance last december.
