Google Pay’s gains unauthorised access to Aadhaar details


According to financial economist Abhijit Mishra's petition, Google Pay terms and conditions explicitly mention that the company would collect, store and share the bank account and Aadhaar details of users, even though it does not have any permission from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) or any other authority to do so.


The petitioner has further claimed that this is a violation of Article 21 of the Constitution of India, Aadhaar Act 2016, the Payments and Settlement Systems Act 2007 and Banking Regulations Act 1949. He has sought UIDAI’s action against the payments company under Sections 23A, 28, 29, 38 and 43 of the Aadhaar Act 2016. Gpay has already been scrutinized thrice for anti-trust issues, the latest one being for Google unfairly promoting its own payments app through prominent placement on the Play Store.
