BREACH: City and Industrial Development Corporation's (CIDCO)

The personal records of about 85,000 applicants to the City and Industrial Development Corporation's (CIDCO) housing scheme have inadvertently been made public by the government establishment. Details such as residential address, mobile number, Permanent Account Number (PAN), bank account number, Indian Financial System Code (IFSC) information related to their bank accounts and birth records are freely available on the CIDCO website.

While officials at the corporation were unsure when the data became accessible to the public, a review of the application process to the housing scheme reveals that forms were made available in August this year and entries were closed on September 19, after which the information received was collated.
