India: Employers (public or private) should have no business asking personal information on citizen's caste or religion; Emplyess should refuse to give such data

Give us your religion, caste, Aadhaar: HRD to all college teachers

. . . the Ministry of Human Resource Development has, over the last four months, profiled at least 60 per cent of more than 15 lakh university and college teachers, complete with individual details such as religion, caste, Aadhaar and phone numbers.

Teachers who are yet to furnish personal details have another month to comply. Moves are also afoot to create a similar students’ database next year.
