#CashlessConsumer is at #AadhaarTribunal and is talking on intersection of #Aadhaar and #DigitalPayments / #Fintech.

#CashlessConsumer makes the following demands to seek a reform in #DBT / payments infrastructure
1. A thorough #CAG audit on #DBT infra to officially document the reasons for exclusions (untraceable payments referred in #NITIAayog Poshan report) and detailed report on #APB, compensate the beneficiaries who are denied welfare benefits with interest
2. Policy decision to gradually migrate #DBT to use #NEFT (run free of cost by RBI wef 1.1.2020) instead of NPCI owned #APB infrastructure which charges ministries implementing #DBT delivery.

These percentages when thought in terms of absolute numbers is a devastating fact. #AadhaarTribunal
Even when people now try to enrol their children for Aadhaar to avail their full entitled amount of grains in the PDS, states like Delhi have now run out of the PDS quota!

The havoc is indeed beyond shocking! #AadhaarTribunal

Now at the #AadhaarTribunal : a brief explanation not how DBTs function with aadhaar. Image
There is no mechanism to even address or find out what went wrong or how we can fix it. People faced problems in the system are clueless and have nowhere to go.
