📢 Thread: RBI Withdraws ₹2000 Banknotes, Here's What You Need to Know! 💵🏦
👉RBI is withdrawing ₹2000 banknotes introduced in 2016 after demonetization. These notes will still be legal tender, but their usage has decreased, so RBI wants to replace them with other denominations. #RBI #CurrencyWithdrawal
👉The decision is part of RBI's "Clean Note Policy" to ensure good quality banknotes in circulation. You can still use ₹2000 notes for transactions, but it's better to deposit or exchange them by September 30, 2023. Banks will help with the process. #CleanNotePolicy

⭐️Indian Women in Digital Spaces: Does Online Anonymity Guarantee Safety?
1. The central thought is that Anonymity has always been associated with women for most of history, so much so that a grant program named ‘Anonymous was a Woman Award’ was initiated by a New York artist in 1996.
2. Anonymous Was A Woman is an unrestricted grant of $25,000 that enables women artists, over 40 years of age and at a significant juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work.

300 #Wipro employees sacked as they took advantage of work from home and worked parallely with another company.

How #Digital #India has precisely found the culprits is amazing. Kindly read the below article. Fantastic system in place in India.
*The humble looking PF Office helps to detect Moonlighting (serving more than one employer at a time) by IT workers*


What is this?

300 people got fired because of this?
IT professionals in their Work From Home avtaar joined other companies who were also in Work From Home mode.

Same competency, double delivery. Two different laptops, same WiFi , catering to two different clients - all from the comfort of own home, in own hometown.

Big win for #DigiLocker - its now powering India's National SSO - Single SignOn service (named MeriPehchaan]👇

What this means? Think FBConnect & GoogleConnect - these SSOs r used acros the internet to sign into websites/apps. DigiLocker SSO is similar but for Indian govt apps..
The National SSO service was launched yesterday as part of the #DigitalIndia Week 2022.

The CoWin example shown above is a live sample implementation... hope to see this turn into a trend, pick up steam and proliferate fast across government websites!
AFAIK the DigiLocker SSO is based on internationally recognized open standards oAuth2.0 & OpenIDConnect - this is safe, secure & provides one direction (unidirectional) access to auth services... similar to GConnect & FBConnect

As the saying goes "Well begun is half done"...

People highlight genuine issues and are met with silence or blanket denials.

Someone shares a stupid video that goes viral on social media and they respond with a whole page of counter bullshit.
Hey @NPCI_NPCI if this is how your encryption/decryption system works, you are a bunch of incompetent morons.

Banks "lock" data with a "private" key and NPCI decrypts it with corresponding "public" key that only NPCI possesses! #DigitalIndia

WTF is "Hexadecimal Private Key"?
@NPCI_NPCI This statement from NPCI actually says a LOT more in what they left unsaid than the 6 points of bullshit that they hastily put together to put out a statement.

3 of 60 days before the new @IndianCERT poiicy comes into effect.

And nobody seems to have tried to use these NTP servers that are supposed to provide reliable and secure time service to the whole country...
@IndianCERT Not just the whole country, even MNCs with infra in other countries need to rely on these servers because...

"it is to be ensured that their time source shall not deviate from NPL and NIC"

From… Image
@IndianCERT The National Informatics Centre @NICMeity NTP server is pretty much impossible to find.

Searching for "NTP" or "NTP Server" on all sites shows nothing except some old magazine articles that they've archived in their "library"(which BTW doesn't use HTTPS) ImageImageImageImage

Seven years ago, the central government’s Digital India initiative acknowledged that expanded internet access was the key to attain digital inclusion. But India’s tryst with internet shutdowns tells a different story...…
Since 2012, India has witnessed 558 shutdowns with an estimated loss of 582.8 million to the Indian economy in 2021 alone.
#internetshutdowns #keepiton #internetdown
In the absence of any formally announced orders for Internet shutdowns to the public before or after a network disruption, documenting these restrictions is important.

#MonroeDoctrine is a United States foreign policy position that opposed European colonialism in the Western Hemisphere, treating any intervention in the political affairs of US by foreign powers as a potentially hostile act. #RussiaUkraine #DigitalIndia #Russia #Ukraine #NATO
#Russia has similar concerns that is why US and NATO agreed that NATO would not expand even an inch towards East (Russia). But that promised was breached on numerous occasion in the past by US and NATO. Russia has been betrayed continuously and systematically. #DigitalIndia
#Russia has been betrayed by US, #NATO and EU. This would have serious consequence in future and US must stop its global hegemonical agenda now. #RussiaUkraine #Ukraine

Opening this thread to give first hand account how @RBI handles online complaints, banking ombudsman cases, etc. This thread would discuss about the ODR Request created against @ICICIBank, to which RBI and ICICI Bank are parties. #DigitalIndia @DasShaktikanta @FinMinIndia @PTLB
No action has been taken by @RBI for ODR Dispute against @ICICIBank filed at @ODRIndia Portal since 08-01-2022. #DigitalEconomy would remain a dream only in India in these circumstances. #DigitalIndia @FinMinIndia @DasShaktikanta
As almost 2 months have elapsed without even acknowledgement, it is safe to presume that Banking Ombudsman system of @RBI has collapsed and is an ineffective, time consuming and unproductive option. The @ODRIndia resolves such issues within 3 months. #DigitalIndia @DasShaktikanta

Another nice initiative under #DigitalIndia - TB Arogya Sathi app. All patients who test positive for tuberculosis are told to download the app, which contains information on the disease and treatment. But that’s not all, it does a lot more than that. Short thread.
Patients have to update their treatment by confirming whether they have taken the days dose. Number of missed doses are tracked. Patient knows exactly when the treatment started and will end. These details are entered by the govt DOTS center. Notice something at the bottom?
Yes, the funds that are provided to every tuberculosis patient for nutritional support are also tracked on the app. They are credited to the patients account directly. In this case it’s showing as outstanding as funds have not been received yet.
