and the material adverse effects on communities across the country. "Why don’t you take steps to completely strangulate the organisational backing that the accused persons must be receiving?The Bench to this observed that the concern wasn’t so much with controlling the UIDAI but with its interface with the world outside The Bench also observed that a blinkered view to reality could not be taken Mandatory Aadhaar under Section 57 Next turning to Section 57 of the Aadhaar Act which allows even private parties to make Aadhaar mandatory it was argued that anyone could not become a requesting entity For example a company like Dominos would be questioned by the UIDAI if it asked to become a requesting entity The Bench here first questioned the purpose behind opening Aadhaar platforms to private players To this it was argued that the private/public divide was reducing with private parties entering many fields constituting public functions Further such activities wrt Aadhaar were in any case funded by the UIDAI In addition private parties performing public functions would open them up to writ jurisdiction Further a body corporate using Aadhaar must have privacy policies in place The UIDAI’s actions against misuse by Airtel and Axis Bank were cited A man goes through the process of eye scanning for the Unique Identification (UID) database system also known as Aadhaar at a registration centre in New Delhi Reuters UIDAI not bound to offer authentication services Further it was argued that the requirement of a law or contract under Section 57 was an important limitation The State Resident Data Hubs it was argued were destroyed due to this On the Bench asking if once there was a contract the UIDAI was bound to offer authentication services it was argued that there must be a contract and the UIDAI was required to permit it The Bench however observed that there was nothing in Section 57 which grants such discretion to the UIDAI The Bench further disagreed with the argument that such discretion flows from the Act itself Examine Aadhaar linking on a case by case basis The Bench also questioned how Aadhaar went from being an entitlement or voluntary to becoming a mandate To this it was argued that Aadhaar linking must be examined on a case by case basis It was also argued that as far as the UIDAI was concerned Aadhaar was an entitlement It is mandatory only under Section 7 and for all other purposes its use is consensual Security requirement under IT Act Next it was argued that the provisions of the Information Technology Act govern Aadhaar as well and this imposed the requirement for the technology to be reasonably secure He argued that there were strict provisions for enforcement under the IT Act and further the CIDR had been declared to be critical information infrastructure under the IT Act It was also argued that 5 levels of biometric checks had to be crossed before the servers could be reached and since there was no connection to the internet the software could not be tinkered with New biometric information must meet certain criteria Next the issue of excessive delegation under the Aadhaar Act was raised On the issue of biometric information it was argued that new forms of biometric information could be included only if it meets the requirements of being non-intrusive a mode of identification as well as capable of instant authentication DNA for instance cannot be simply added to the biometric information with the UIDAI Revolutionary nature of Aadhaar The advantage of Aadhaar it was argued was that now the person claiming entitlements (say foodgrains) was now required to directly appear in person before the distributor This prevented others from collecting a person’s entitlements on their behalf This further prevented the distributor himself from denying a person his entitlements This was described as a revolutionary step For this it was argued fingerprints were a huge safeguard thus preventing other IDs from being used Further the fingerprinting enabled deduplication Nothing in the world is deterministic Next turning to the issue of the probabilistic nature of Aadhaar authentication it was argued that nothing it the world is deterministic and probability governs people everywhere The Bench here questioned how a probabilistic system could be allowed to affect fundamental rights The Bench further noted that exclusion was a fact To this it was argued that these were implementation problems which needed to be resolved Sources of arguments include Livetweeting of the case by Gautam Bhatia Prasanna S and SFLCin You can read our complete coverage of the Aadhaar Supreme Court case

receipt of govt benefits cannot be at the cost of compromising fundamental rights Aadhaar is architecturally unconstitutional argue the petitioners Petitioners argue that Aadhaar violates dignity by objectifying and depersonalizing an individual Petitioners seek compensation for starvation deaths and extension of March 31st deadline Section 7 exception in Supreme Court’s interim order greatly

One of the world’s most important crop gene storehouses just got a funding boost By Erik StokstadOct 11 2018 7:00 PM When plant breeders want to improve crops they turn to the diversity stored in gene banks around the world But many of these critical storehouses which hold seeds and other plant tissues are in poor condition as a result of funding shortages Now the Crop Trust a nonprofit based in Bonn Germany is aiming to help crop gene banks find firmer footing by providing a steadier source of cash And today it announced its first award a 5-year renewable grant of $14 million annually to the gene bank of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in Los Baos Philippines “These crop collections are too important to the world to be left to uncertainty” says Marie Haga executive director of the Crop Trust which was founded in 2004 “They can’t depend on budgets that go up and down” The trust is best known for its work on the Svalbard Global Seed Vault a storage facility dug into an Arctic mountain in Norway It contains nearly 1 million samples of crop seeds gathered from gene banks over the world kept in case disaster strikes But the organization also has been quietly working to improve the ability of gene banks to conserve and distribute seeds and helping the banks meet standards that qualify them for long-term funding from an endowment established by the trust After 6 years of effort IRRI—a plant breeding center that has played a central role in developing modern high-yield rice varieties—has now met those standards For example its gene bank can now make seeds from 90% of its 136000 varieties available immediately on request The new funding should make it easier for IRRI to sustain the sometimes labor-intensive process of maintaining its collections; for example some crop varieties need to planted periodically so that researchers can harvest fresh collections of viable seed The trust ultimately hopes to expand its financial help to IRRI’s sister institutes in the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) a global nonprofit partnership for agriculture that has research centers throughout the developing world CGIAR centers run 11 gene banks in all and analysts estimate it will take an endowment of close to $500 million to generate the annual funds needed to ensure their long-term viability (Safeguarding all crops stored in the world’s roughly 25 major gene banks would take an endowment of about $850 million) So far the Crop Trust has raised about $300 million for its seed bank endowment with contributions mainly from the United States Norway and Germany So “We have some ways to go” Haga says Given that rice is one of the world’s most important crops researchers say supporting IRRI is an obvious priority But it will also be important to help the gene banks that conserve less well-known crops such as teff or quinoa that are important for food security says Irene Hoffmann secretary of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture in Rome “There are many gene banks especially the national ones that don’t get enough attention and many crops that are not as high in profile as rice or maize” she says Many banks lack the resources to prevent their seed collections from withering away the commission noted in a report last year Haga hopes the Crop Trust will eventually be able to support national and regional gene banks as well as the prominent international centers Fundraising for long-term seed conservation has gotten more difficult she says and it’s always been harder to raise funds for agricultural diversity than charismatic wild animals “We need to protect all natural biodiversity” she says “but let’s not forget that plants actually feed us” The risk of data sharing by REs The Bench, told Refinery29: ""Inditex has met all of its contractual obligations to Bravo Textil [sic] and is currently working on
