🗳 Voter ID + Aadhaar; நிச்சயம் இணையத்தான் வேண்டுமா? #TSLExplainer #AadhaarVoterIdLink

🔴போதிய விவாதங்களின்றி, அவசர கதியில் நேற்று லோக் சபாவில் நிறைவேற்றப்பட்ட, தேர்தல் சட்டங்கள் திருத்த மசோதா 2021, அரசியல் கட்சியினரிடையே பெரும் எதிர்ப்புகளை சந்தித்து வருகிறது. Image
காரணம், அதில் இடம்பெற்றிருந்த வாக்காளர் அடையாள அட்டையையும், ஆதார் எண்ணையும் இணைக்கும் ஒரு அம்சம்தான்.

என்ன பிரச்னை அதில்?

தேர்தல் சட்டங்கள் திருத்த மசோதாவில் மொத்தம் 4 திருத்தங்கள் இடம்பெற்றிருந்தன. அதில் ஒன்றுதான் இந்த ஆதார், வாக்காளர் அடையாள அட்டை இணைப்பு. இது என்ன சொல்கிறது?
👉 மக்கள் பிரதிநிதித்துவ சட்டம் 1950-ன், பிரிவு 23-ல் திருத்தம் செய்து, தேர்தல் ஆணையம், ஆதார் மற்றும் வாக்காளர் விவரங்களை இணைப்பதற்கான அதிகாரத்தை வழங்குகிறது இந்த மசோதா.

Short Thread on #Aadhaar Voter ID linking idea, where it comes from and why you should care about it seriously. Proposal to link Aadhaar was pushed by Nilekani to ECI. This was executed by ECI in 2014 by terming it National Electoral Roll Purification - Authentication Programme.
The first pilot of this exercise of linking Voter ID with Aadhaar was carried out in Nizamabad and Hyderabad districts in Nov 2014 by IAS official Ahmed Babu. Babu claimed this excercise helped remove duplicate voters and recommend to ECI. ECI made it a national programme in 2015
Supreme Court which has ordered Aadhaar to be only used for subsidies halted this exercise in Aug 2015. By then Chief Electoral Officer of AP & Telangana deleted 40 lakh voters in Telangana and another 25 Lakhs in AP. ECI linked Aadhaar with Voter ID without informing the voters

How do you file your @IncomeTaxIndia returns in India without @UIDAI, when you live abroad? It's a saga, and like all good stories, there are several back-stories.
We are in December 2021.
So here is a year-end saga from January 2021 🧵
In Dec 2020, I suddenly remembered I had to file my taxes. Contacted my kind CA. Obviously, instead of partying in pajamas, I was working on my income-expense document. Thankfully, the date was extended to Jan 10, 2021. That's how my first blessing for the New Year went to my CA.
So now, I breezed through with the filing—almost.
CA says #Aadhaar number needed. I didn't have one. Why?
Let's take a detour to the year 2019 B.C. (Before COVID):

Soeben erschienen: ein 3-Teiler mit @JannesvanRoermu über #Covidpass #Covidzertifikat Wir haben nachgehakt, Zusammenhänge mit #FunctionCreep und E-Id gefunden. @RecheckHealth hat einen Leak gekriegt um was mit unsere Daten passiert #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
Was #FunctionCreep von Innovation unterscheidet ist die qualitative Veränderung der Funktionsweise. Einer der möglichen Function Creeps für das #Covidzertifikat überschneidet sich mit der Agenda von mächtigen Interessensgruppen #Privacy #Datenschutz #digsec
Unterdessen behauptet @BAG_OFSP_UFSP das #Covidzertifikat #CovidPass sei nur lokal in der App der Smartphone gespeichert. Ein Leak und weitere Recherchen haben gezeigt: es stimmt nicht. #UVCI #transparenz #digsec >> re-check.ch/wordpress/fr/f…

Just out: a 3-parts series with @JannesvanRoermu on #Covidpass #Covidcertificate We’ve been digging deeper in its links to #FunctionCreep and E-id. Bonus material: @RecheckHealth received a leak on what happens with our data when tested/jabbed #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
What distinguishes #FunctionCreep from innovation: it involves a qualitative change in functionality. One of the possible function creeps for #Covidpass #Covidcertificate coincides with the agenda of powerful interest groups. #privacy #dataprotection re-check.ch/wordpress/en/f…
Meanwhile, in Switzerland @BAG_OFSP_UFSP claims #COVIDcertificate is stored only locally in the App on your smartphone: "Neither personal data nor the certificates are stored in a central system”. A leak and further research showed: it's more complicated than that #UVCI (3/)

#ID2020 is very quiet having published a single video in 10 months - the #GoodHealthPass launch event (Feb 11 2021 w/ 2,452 views). Equally restrained is the Twitter account created Jan 2021, w/ a mere 384 followers - & 12 tweets. ID2020 Twitter is also on hiatus. #Strategy ImageImageImageImage

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
internetfreedom.in/the-e-shram-po…
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.

India is running out of oxygen, #Covid19 patients are dying–because the govt wasted time: It took 8 months to invite bids for over 150 #oxygen generation plants. 6 months later, most still aren’t up & running. @psychia90 & @VijaytaL report for @scroll_in.

#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?

This thread reports: Thread explaining the curious case of the PAN-Aadhaar LinkagAadhaar is not unique, is not certified, verified, or audite
In 2017 there were only 1,544 fake #PAN numbers according Minister of State for Finance, Santosh Kumar Gangwar, then @FinMinIndia, http://164.100.24.220/loksabhaquestions/annex/12/AU980.pdf
When Former Supreme Court Justice, P.B. 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?

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.

ecoti.in/w2vhAb
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

#Aadhaar
#SupremeCourt

barandbench.com/news/litigatio…
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.
