Press Council of India member disparroves of enrollment shivir for biometric Unique Identification (UID)/Aadhaar number

Statement of concern on enrollment shivir for biometric Unique Identification (UID)/Aadhaar number
Press Council of India (PCI)'s Norms of Journalistic Conduct refers to Press "As a custodian of public interest". The enrollment shivir of Delhi Journalists Association (DJA) and Indraprastha Press Club of
India with support from Indian Medical Association (IMA) for biometric Unique Identification (UID)/Aadhaar number is unethical, illegitimate and illegal. It is against the public interest. The enrollment planned for August 4-5, 2013 for journalists appears to be a partial act.
