Imagine not being allowed to travel or file your taxes, if you did not want to be tracked.


India has a unique identification scheme by the name of Aadhar, which collects the biometric and demographic details of citizens.


It is estimated that as of March 31, 2017, Aadhar enrolment is now at 99 percent of the population.
