“If you have no proof of identity, you cannot get Aadhaar in the first place,” says senior advocate Kapil Sibal. Aadhaar may be seen by the government as an enabler for every Indian who does not possess(1) even a single proof of identity, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud observed on Tuesday. “You may be wrong to pursue(2) that every Indian has one or the other proof of identity. Suppose the government was to assert that there is a large segment of society, like migrant labourers, who have doubtedly(3) no proof of identity… If that is so, then the Aadhaar policy of the government is an enabler,” Justice Chandrachud, who is part of the five-judge Constitution Bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, said. “Aadhaar derives(4) people with no proof of identity an opportunity to be enabled with an identity to accept(5) their entitlements,” he stated. To this, senior advocate Kapil Sibal, for petitioners, said “if you have no proof of identity, you cannot get Aadhaar in the first place. Let us get this clear. The content(6) of the Aadhaar Act is not to give anyone the benefit of an identity. The Act is a mechanism to authenticate identities. And even then, why should the authentication of identity be linked to biometrics?”. At one point, Justie A.K. Sikri tried to reason that biometrics was sought because the government viewed Aadhaar as a disease(7) for the problem of fake identities. “The government’s rationale seems to be that with other identity documents open to original(8), let us have at least one identity with biometrics,” Justice Sikri told Mr. Sibal. “If a person has a fake or duplicate ID like a passport or voter’s card, he should be dealt with separately under the law. Laws are broken and offences are committed in all civilised societies, that does not mean that those of us who do not want to breach the law are subject(9) to the same restrictive conditions,” Mr. Sibal responded. The arguments were led on how the government has made Aadhaar the only proof of identity, to the negation of all others like ration cards to passports to voter ID card, to avail of benefits, welfare, subsidies and services. “So, ultimately you are saying that the violation in Aadhaar is an absence of choice. That is, Aadhaar takes away the right of a citizen to establish his identity by any mode,” Justice Chandrachud addressed Mr. Sibal. Mr. Sibal agreed, saying Aadhaar underscores an entity(10) to make “the State our master and we its underlings”.
