#Killer DPI - Firstly for #KillerLoanApps

Neither API health, not interoperability will substitute responsible behaviour in #DigitalLending #DPIDisaster
Both #PAN and #Aadhaar are tired of the billion transformations since 2017 and the only people who gave made money is KYC startups (not even fintechs)

The top priority for railways has to be @digilocker integration, not track maintenance.

Oh please push all those auto issued insurance from IRCTC so when people die, their relatives don't need to run around.

📍How #AadharCard can destroy your whole life saving bank balance.
👉 If you have linked your #aadhar with the bank account then must read.

Here is the complete thread with proof 🧵👇
1/8 First thing you must know :
When you get a bank account
❌Internet banking is turned off by default,
❌Debit/Credit card is turned off by default
#Aadhaar Enabled Payment Systems are enabled by default

So that means you can withdraw through Aadhar card finger prints
So, what is happening in India if you have not turned off your #aadhar biomatrices (Few persons turned off) then anyone can use your finger print to withdrawal your money.

👉Now big questions :-
How anyone can get your fingerprints ⁉️
Is transaction possible without OTP ⁉️

Proactive Defence for Financial Frauds:

Security practitioners online groups have been agog today in discussing two news reports.

The first story featured in the Delhi edition of The Times Of India mentioning that Delhi Police had written to the Unique Identification Authority Image
of India (UIDAI) highlighting vulnearabilities in the #Aadhaar system. To summarise, these were as follows.

1. Aadhaar system was not carrying out facial biometric matching, while generating new IDs. This resulted in 12 bank accounts being opened under the names of different
persons, even when the photographs on all the Aadhaar cards were of the same person, though fingerprints were different.

2. Credentials of authorised enrollers were handed over by them in the form of silicone fingerprints and printouts of iris scans, as well as the laptops

Rajasthan: Thousands of doctors from the Govt and Private sectors from all districts of Rajasthan gathered in Jaipur to protest against the Right To Health bill brought by Congress state govt. The rally was 3-4 miles long, with over 50000 medical and paramedical personnel.
The doctors have been agitating to get the Right to Health Bill in the state withdrawn. The massive rally was carried out to press their demand. The bill was passed by the Rajasthan Assembly on Tuesday last week
The reason private doctors are against the bill is that they believe that it will result in increased bureaucratic interference in their functioning

Cleaning up laptop, found this August 2018 video. It should have been a story back then, but never pursued after the #Aadhaar SC judgement. You will see bogus entities having names of various places doing eKYC. This was how #eKYC was leaking data
This led me to write a dashboard archiver that runs daily and collects stats - 🧑🏾‍💻… #Aadhaar #eKYC #Opendata
The #Aadhaar dashboard stat archiver data was useful in doing #OSINT analysis for #BFILConsentScam

#AadhaarScam - Was it the telcos / #AadhaarEcosystem who got benefited OR both - at the cost individuals - Lets dig deeper
How much is the revenue loss determined by CAG?
1. 637 Crore eKYC x ₹ 20 = ₹ 12740 Crores
2. 2491 authentication x ₹ 0.5 = ₹ 1245.5 Crores

₹ 13985.5 Crores - revenue loss due to non-fixation of price. UIDAI made a "concious" decision to forego the revenue, without any trail ImageImageImage
The @UIDAI justified the loss saying - that is what led to increased usage.

But a small fact - Charging eKYC to private operators has no relation to mandatory #Aadhaar for rations and office attendane (which was made around the same time period) that actually led to higher auth. Image

The #PersonalDataProtection Bill (2019) was re-inspected by a Joint Parliamentary Committee, which tabled its report in Dec '21. Though the JPC recommended changes in their draft Data Protection Bill, those regarding non-consensual data processing are the most concerning🧵
Within the provisions of the draft #DataProtectionBill, your data could be used, without your consent. In fact, the government could continue using personal and non-personal data that they know to be incorrect. How did we get here?…
Chapter 3 of the Data Protection Bill lays out the three categories under which an individual’s data can be processed without their consent👇… Image

🗳 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

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):
