Double negative conveys the wrong meaning?[edit]

| Aadhaar is a random number which never starts with a 0 or 1, and is not loaded with profiling or intelligence into identity numbers that makes it insusceptible to fraud and theft.

The latter part of this sentence could be simplified. Currently it gives the impression that despite the Aadhar number being randomised it is susceptible to fraud/theft by profiling/intelligence. I propose the following edit

| Aadhar is a random number that never starts with a 0 or 1. Because the triad of 12-digits is random and not scheme based, it is insusceptible to fraud through profiling by machine or guesswork by humans.

Does the random nature of the number in itself guarantee prevention of theft? I doubt not.

Applications and related projects[edit]

No citations given here. Improper grammar in second sentence. Propose to remove this section unless there are further plans to expand it? I think the rest of the sections cover the uses and applications well enough

| It is used for unique identification. Nowadays it became mandatory for all our basic needs. In states like Tamil Nadu, it is made mandate for providing ration. Also it is used for forensic purposes since it is a bio-metric identification
