Indian authorities issue conflicting advice about biometric ID card security

Sounds like similar issues to any other form of (photo-)ID. Personally I also use a cover on my passport when travelling that covers about half the ID info. Yes I've had hotels and such make a fuss when asking to make a copy, but when holding firm it's never actually been a problem. There's just too many ways a photocopy of an ID-card/passport or the info on it can be misused by nefarious persons.
