FYI: Australia Discontinues Its Aadhaar-Like Biometrics Identity Project

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) has decided to discontinue the Biometric Identification Services (BIS) project.

This decision was taken in light of project delays.

This was a $46mn deal.

While the reason stated is ‘due to delays’, do you think they have looked at all chaos that has happened in India post Aadhaar?
