Critiques of Aadhaar: what critics see and oversee.
Conversation with Reetika Khera, Associate Professor at IIM-Ahmedabad
3 Wed 09:55 AM – 11:40 AM IST
Since its inception, the Aadhaar project has been applauded and criticized for all its real and perceived claims and counter-claims. In the last 8-12 years, political and economic critiques from the Left, Right, centrist ideologies have tried to shape popular (and not-so-popular) opinions about Aadhaar.
In a conversation with Reetika Khera on Wednesday, 3 April at HasGeek House, we will:
