If the Indian government will continue to make the Aadhaar system mandatory in different arenas, then privacy must be a top, "nonnegotiable" priority, Seetha writes in an op-ed for Firstpost. "If the government wants to push ahead on Aadhaar, it has to start serious work on a privacy law without delay," Seetha writes.

"The Aadhaar project has its uses, certainly, but it is time for some stock-taking of its implementation," Seetha adds.
