Finance Minister: "Migrant labourers will be able to access food through a 'one nation one ration' card no matter where they are. 100% national portability by March 2021. To benefit nearly 670 million people". Follow thread for facts:
Launched in April 2018, the One Nation-One-Ration-Card scheme should have given migrants access to rations wherever they were by now. The programme is under various stages of implementation, with some states more advanced than others & currently of little use.
Over the past year, One-Nation-One-Ration-Card was introduced in 8 states, extended to 4 more in Jan 2020. In Feb 2020, Ministry for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution said it would be implemented in all 29 states from 1 June 2020.

Justice Gupta: Just because you hold a contrarian view, does not mean you are anti-national or disrespect the country. You may disagree with the government, may not go against the country. There is a difference between the country and its government

Last evening, over a conversation with brother SanjayHegde, we concluded, #ModiSarkar is simply not interested in talking to the anti #CAA_NRC_NPR protesters & would prefer to wear them down .
In the meanwhile, affiliates will go full steam ahead with disinformation campaigns.
Hence, it is important to be clear about what the #CAA_NRC_Protests are about.
The #CAA_NRCProtests aren't against granting citizenship to oppressed minorities of neighbouring countries.
Granting citizenship to those seeking refuge, is a welcome move.
Had #CAA2019 been religion neutral, there would have been no reason to oppose it.
But the intrusive nature of the planned #NPR & the stated plans of a nationwide #NRC with #CAA2019 in place as a enabling legislation, make the whole exercise suspect.

When every Indian is asked to prove his nationality and his claim to Citizenship on the basis of documents - not just his own but also of his parents - then the State will have total control - ownership almost - of every citizen's life and liberty.
My father was a graduate employed in the Railways. I dont have a birth certifcate, never mind my late parents. the earliest document I can produce is school leaving cert from the lid 60s - and that does not have my full name on it. I'd have to bribe my way into #NCR
The whole #NPR / #NCR process seems ripe for #Corruption and #venality on a massive scale. I know many #NRI's (foreign citizens with #OCI status) who have an #Aadhar while being ineligible for it because they are non-residents. With bribery you can get any document you want

Here are 20 points to prove how thickheaded we are...
(Enjoyed translating from the Bengali post of Ajay Das)

1) They told us to make #Aadhar Cards, which would be the singular identity for all citizens.
We obliged.
2)Then they told us to link our Aadhar Cards with our Banks, Pan and Mobiles... otherwise nothing would remain operational and also that everything would be more secure.
We did it.

3) Baba Ramdev started selling noodles, instead of teaching Yoga.
We ate it.
4) National Anthem had to be sung before a movie.
We sang along.

5) They told us that Rs.1000/= and Rs. 500/= notes would be demonitised. They advised us to exchange the old cash by standing in long queues day after day with a deadline threatening us.

Never have I ever hated #Aadhar and the ruling government this much in my life.

As I was filling details at the hospital for my sister's death certificate, a nurse consoled me and asked for her Aadhar card for identification.

Contd..
I told the nurse that I have her driving license with me. But no, they want only Aadhar.

In times like these, you don't know where you are, let alone remembering where you kept all the ID cards.

Contd..
My sister's death was sudden, so we had access only to her phone. My mum couldn't remember where she kept her Aadhar card.

The hospital or the cremation ground people do not accept any other ID cards. It was literally a huge struggle in finding her Aadhar.

What a year it’s been for the Indian media -- resignations at ABP News, Cobrapost’s stinging Big Media, #MeToo and, of course, prime-time propaganda that played out as news.

Here’s a look back through some pieces on @newslaundry .
There was the annual Bhima Koregaon celebration with which came the annual reminder why Big Media either doesn't get caste or refuses to get it. newslaundry.com/2018/01/05/bhi…
.@thetribunechd came up with an excellent story on #Aadhar breach and was served an FIR for its pains.

#Thread on the Ghosts of #Aadhaar

Are subsidies, benefits and services from the Consolidated Fund of india being siphoned by the Ghosts and duplicates of Aadhaar?
In order to assign an #Aadhaar number at least two Primary IDs are required by the UIDAI - one as proof of identity and another as a proof of address. uidai.gov.in/enrolment-upda…
According to data provided by the UIDAI, in its Affidavit to the SC, only 60 crores could have used the voter ID, 29 crores PAN,17.37 crores a drivers license, 15.17 crores a ration card and 6.9 crores a Passport as their Primary ID to obtain a Secondary ID, the #Aadhaar

@Memeghnad @NigelBritto Yeah go and stand in que 2 get ration with your BPL card and let us know why you require #aadhar
Tell people that subsidy for gas will be given to all regardless of income...u cannot opt out of subsidy as there is no #aadhar of ur income and v cannot track your data
@Memeghnad @NigelBritto Tell that guy doing hawala transaction to continue with his work as we are incompetent to catch his work through bank
Sorry I forgot you don't want to link bank accounts to #aadhar
As your privacy is in danger

Thanks a lot to everyone for all the support, encouragement and love we have received over the order allowing us to file IT-Returns without #Aadhar. I'm really glad we got lucky with a progressive bench that agreed to give relief to everyone instead of making it just about us.
This case has received more than it's share of attention in both print and social media. While I am definitely grateful, I would like to re-iterate that it is a part of a much larger struggle started and sustained by many activists and movements and needs to be seen as such.
The fight against #Aadhar cannot be selectively highlighted when privileged communities are affected (similar attention was received when the #privacy judgment was received and when deadlines for linking PAN, bank account and phone numbers were indefinitely extended)

There is nothing surprising. The very same method of finger print faking was demonstrated ere the Parliamentary Standing Committee that studied #Aadhar in 2011. @UIDAI knew this is possible. Biometrics is the least secure password of all (1/n)
#DestroyTheAadhaar
Nobody with minimum understanding of / concern about security or privacy would plan a project like this.
#AadhaarFail
(2/n)
and all those in power who decided to implement such a dangerous project like #Aadhaar , without any study or cost benfit analysis should be held accountable.

#Aadhaar Day 9; Session 1 - @KapilSibal begins with reading a newspaper report abt, how ppl are being denied pension because of Aadhaar. Justice Bhushan enquires - if there are so many problems with Aadhaar, then why 1.2 billion ppl have enrolled for it? #scobserver,
replies that difference between enrolment and requirement of authentication each time. Authentication requirement continuously leads to exclusion, which is a ground for challenging Aadhar. J. Bhushan seems non-convinced. #scobserver
J. Chandrachud says that exclusion can be because of 2 factors - lack of infrastructure and biological factor like old age. Observes that government can upgrade infrastructure. ASG Tushar Mehta questions claim of exclusion due to Aadhaar. #scobserver #Aadhaar

dear sir surprisingly my aunty got DBT to her Airtel Bnk A/c whch she never opened!She just linked #aadhar with Airtel number only
Now her question are as follows :
1. Who authorised IOC to transfer DBT to non verfied Airtel Bank when her @IOBIndia a/c is registered? ..
2. Does linking Aadhar to @Airtel_Presence by subscribers gives full authority to telcos to open bank account against number w/o consent ?
