The first result on typing the Google search query
The first search result that surfaces on Google is of StarCardsIndia.com, a Hyderabad-based company that provides services like payment gateway and mobile app development.

The revelation also brings forth the fact that several websites have uploaded unsolicited Aadhaar details of individuals for no good reason.
These include the official website of the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (www.incois.gov.in), the official website of the All India Football Federation (www.the-aiff.com), and even CancerCareTrust.org, which has uploaded Aadhaar details of several cancer patients including children.
