Gearing up for the hearing on the Constitutionality of #HudumaNamba this morning.

So many issues raised in this case. #Dataprotection #RighttoDignity #Publicparticipation #Publicprocurement #Seperationofpowers #AccesstoInformation
@Bomu sworn in as the first expert witness in the #HudumaNamba case.
@Bomu @Bomu: there is no information in the public domain on NIIMS. All we know is what is in the amendment to the Registration of Persons Act.

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.

My thread on WHY @narendramodi ji's @AyushmanNHA (आयुष्मान भारत-प्रधान मंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना) is MY personal reason for #ModiOnceMore
Y'all know that @AyushmanNHA provides Family Floating Coverage of ₹5 Lakhs per family and that its the world's largest #PublicHealth Insurance scheme . What then is the USP of this scheme? Here are a few:
1. It subsumes two earlier schemes, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana, and Senior citizen health Insurance Scheme, along with a few others.
Benefit: CLARITY in END-POINT DELIVERY! No more confusion as to whether you're eligible.

Thread 👇🏽

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

We want terrorist to get cell phones in India and do blasts, this will instill fear in people and we can play politics and make money hence say no to #Aadhaar
#AadhaarVerdict
We don't want subsidy amount to given to poor people, hence say no to #Aadhaar
#AadhaarVerdict
We want a complicated process of getting access to govt benefits, hence say no to #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
But there is no danger when filling ITR
@Memeghnad @NigelBritto Wait we used to stand line to file ITR before now I can do it from my mobile phone
I don't want this facility I don't was y link my #aadhar

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

Hilarious things happening on #aadhar under Govt pressure! @RBI opens office on a holiday to clarify its #RTI answers to @MoneylifeIndia
Its favourite paper @EconomicTimes added masala to the non-clarification! m.rbi.org.in//Scripts/BS_Pr…
Then @indiatvnews decides to cover the issue and asked me for a sound bite. Since I was clueless about clarification I spoke about our RTI

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 ?
