No agreement with any American co for linking Aadhaar: Prasad

first_imgNew Delhi, Mar 11 (PTI) The government today said the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has not entered into agreement with any American multinational company linking up a video- and voice-enabled call application with Aadhaar. Last month, technology giant Microsoft said it had been working on a pilot to link Skype with the Aadhaar database to explore if the identification service can be used on video calls, including those with government institutions. However, Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said there is no such proposal pending or under consideration. “UIDAI has not entered into any agreement with any American multinational company linking up a video- and voice-enabled call application with Aadhaar,” Prasad said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha.
