RBI says not connected with study on Aadhaar security aspects
The Reserve Bank of India has clarified that neither the central bank nor its researcher was in any way connected to a study on security aspects of Aadhaar. In a statement, the RBI said, it has come across some media reports attributing the study by one S Ananth, an adjunct faculty of Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT) to RBI researchers.
The central bank said the views expressed by the author are not those of the RBI. As per media reports, a staff paper published by IDRBT has flagged safety issues related to the unique identity number.
In a separate statement, IDRBT said, the views expressed in the study are those of the author alone and do not represent the views of IDRBT or RBI.
