#eRUPI #UPI Vouchers for benefits is a radical departure from #DBT. Purpose and person aware #G2P payments are here. #SaveOurPrivacy
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ration_st… is digitized food stamps, but crucial digitization difference is it converts a bearer instrument like stamp / coupon into a person / purpose specific instrument, embedding automatic data emission about beneficiary upon use.
The naming of this is curious. When countries around the world are discussing #CBDC / issuing new digital currency, naming a private payment instrument #eRUPI is sign of things to come (?). One can only speculate at the moment.

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

Sir, with ref to your very much needed sensitive response, in ordinariness of #ordinarypeople & with commonsense of
#commonman, may we submit as follows:
1.Instead of experimenting with #3FarmActs for 1-2 yrs, why not keep those in abeyance for 2yrs?
2. Ask #40AssnsofFarmers>>
>> to submit their #ProposedDraft keeping following in view:
a. #Reforms inter-alia shifting from existing agriculture pattern in #Punjab #Haryana etc to...
b."Cost + theory" & feasibility of #MSP for all crops
c. Is uniform #FarmActs possible for all #States
3.Likewise #GOI >>
>>needs to appreciate that instead of "experimenting" for
1-2 yrs which if results in #irreversible & #irrevocable DAMAGES will be creating more
#TrustDeficit, it will be better to keeping #3FarmActs in #Abeyance to hv #LevelPlayingField to make needful decisions cordially!>>

To soothe the anthropologist and journalist in me, I joined @epw_in’s Engage in 2019, where I got the space to build visual narratives of academic articles & deep-dive into EPW’s Archives to curate exhaustive reading lists.

Here's a #thread of some of the cool work I got to do.
Designed by @lalposter, here's an illustration I curated of @durbakatha & @mrinalsatish’s eye-opening research on how evidencing of rape in S. Asia is embedded in colonial assumptions, and perpetuates stereotypes of women, their character and bodies. bit.ly/2UCeqsq
How has the trauma of the Partition been internalised by India's collective conscious? This timeline is based on Gita Viswanath's and Salma Malik's research on how the Partition came to be depicted through Hindi cinema. bit.ly/2J3qa1O

On the business front and absolute sales in stores this Qtr, barring Jan/Feb ( Which were normal as per expectation) March so far has seen good growth across segements. March was good due to advanced buying by most of the customers..
We need to worry about rest of March and 1st Qtr of next FY considering the #Corona fear stays till mid of May. How much damage it can cause in terms of supply and damand situation across the country. A well calibareated policies from Govt can change things in a big way.
Major points....

1) Since informal sector contributes 80% of Indias working class. A direct transfer thru #NREGA #Jandhan is need of hour.

2) An income tax waive off for atleast 6 months starting Aprt to to Jun help to stabilize demand and consumption. (2.5 lakh cr deficit)

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄
