IPL matches organisers in Bengaluru have decided to make Aadhaar Cards mandatory while buying tickets.
Now, the credentials of every individual will be fed in the database. So that if there is any case of unscrupulous or criminal activity, it will be easier for the police to track down the person by looking up in the database. The IPL matches organisers, DNA Networks, and the Bengaluru City Police have come together with this idea.
The organisers and the police have also met the Aadhaar officials. The Aadhaar officials gave their consent too and will be supplying equipment such as the fingerprint scanners.
The Bangalore Mirror reports were quoted as, “While buying match tickets at the counter, a copy of Aadhaar card will have to be produced. The buyer’s card number and fingerprint impression will be fed into the system and cross-checked for authenticity. Those who bought tickets online by giving their Aadhaar numbers will have to verify their identity through fingerprint impression at the time of ticket collection.”
