Vanishing fingerprints

Just read.
Many hard-working Indians ( I’m presuming manual labourers specially construction workers and farmers) have such worn-out fingertips that scanners cannot read the identity defining fingerprints!
Iris scanning is therefore a part of the Biometric database being collected under the massive Aadhaar project.
