The #eShram portal was launched recently for India's unorganised workers. A unique 12-digit Universal Account Number (UAN) will be provided for each registered person, and there are benefits.

If you want a lowdown on the portal, follow this thread 👇🏽 1/n…
Initial benefits include insurance of Rs. 1 lakh for partial disability and Rs. 2 lakh for permanent disability or death. The government aims to provide social security benefits through this portal, like: maternity and educational benefits, pensions, PF benefits, & more. 2/n
Welfare is being centralised: the UAN number will be valid across the country and will help with providing social security benefits regardless of a worker's location.

Sounds good, but here's the catch: #eShram registration is online and #Aadhaar is mandatory. 3/n

With an increasingly reliable data of infections, hospitalisations and deaths despite vaccination, it would be prudent and a legal obligation to revoke all permissions of emergency use of vaccines. Ignoring these conditions and deaths is criminal negligence. @WHO @CDCgov @US_FDA Image

Why are engineers and technologists running vaccination in #india @drharshvardhan @PMOIndia ? The #cowin portal leads to exclusion of those who don't have smart phones, aren't tech savvy, are women, have data packs. Don't you see ground realities before coming out with policies?
Also please refer us to the official document which is not an FAQ that mandates #cowin for vaccination
Until recently #cowin was only available in English. India isn't Bangalore.

#Aadhaar is a merely a number that is assigned to demographic and biometric data that is never certified, verified, or audited by anyone.

Why then is everyone being coerced to get an Aadhaar and link it to a PAN that already provides verified tax history?

In 2017 there were only 1,544 fake #PAN numbers according Minister of State for Finance, Santosh Kumar Gangwar, then @FinMinIndia,

Sawant had already highlighted that there are at least 580 million (58 crore) suspect #Aadhaar cards why would @finminIndia and @cbdt want to link #PAN to Aadhaar which increases the chance of fake PANs?… At least 58 crore Aadhaar numbers are suspected fakes and ha

Do you want to know what can be done with just one Aadhaar OTP?

- Can open a Bank Account
- Can get a new SIM Card
- Can sign Digital Mandates (e-NACH)

Doesn't matter if you are doing it or fraud is doing it on your behalf. All it takes OTP.

#KYC #Aadhaar Thread ⬇️
Refer to this Article, There are thousands of bank account opened by Airtel without a person's consent, they're sold to other users for just ₹50/100

The process is very simple, the agent who is issuing a SIM card can open the account by using a thumb.
There is no single portal where people can go & see all their active SIM Cards, e-NACH/AutoPay mandates, Bank Accounts and cancel them if they want.

This is the biggest product failure. RT and let @UIDAI @NPCI_NPCI @dilipasbe @PMOIndia do something to prevent our KYC and data.

[BREAKING] Supreme Court dismisses review petitions challenging 2018 Aadhaar judgment; Justice DY Chandrachud dissents

The majority judges held that no case is made out for review of the Court's September 2018 judgment which had upheld Aadhaar including passage of Aadhaar Act as money bill.

#Aadhaar #SupremeCourt
Justice DY Chandrachud, however, dissented citing another 5-judge Bench ruling which had expressed doubts on correctness of Aadhaar verdict with regard to issue of passage of Aadhaar Act as money bill. It had therefore referred that legal issue to a larger Bench.
