#ReadingSession - #Thread on "Report of the Task Force on an IT Strategy for PDS and an implementable solution for the direct transfer of subsidy for Food and Kerosene" - Oct 2011 aka #NandanPDSTaskForce which first mooted the idea of #PDSN. It is important to understand #ONORC
Why is pmnrf.gov.in not used and a personal branding named fund being used for this? PMNRF has receipt generation, in existance for ages. PM-CARES attempts at profiting out of disaster. #DisasterPayments
But there is more. pmnrf.gov.in/en masks PAN of the fund to XXXXXX 637Q. What is the need for masking a PAN of a fund? Privacy for PM fund?
#CashlessConsumer studied #DisasterPayments and AACTP 4637 Q is the PAN of PMNRF. PMNRF also allows people to download receipts. PM-CARES doesn't have neither, didn't give a PAN for claiming 80G exemption.
NPCI responded on Nov 1, 2018 with a circular mandating all BBPS ecosystem participants to ensure customer consent for bill fetch and provide opt out of auto fetch provisions and comply with circular in 60 days
1. A thorough #CAG audit on #DBT infra to officially document the reasons for exclusions (untraceable payments referred in #NITIAayog Poshan report) and detailed report on #APB, compensate the beneficiaries who are denied welfare benefits with interest
2. Policy decision to gradually migrate #DBT to use #NEFT (run free of cost by RBI wef 1.1.2020) instead of NPCI owned #APB infrastructure which charges ministries implementing #DBT delivery.
#CAA_NRC_NPR Need more evidence UID / #Aadhaar, NPR and NRC are linked? This is from opencrvs.org - an opensource Civil Registration and Vital Statistics system. OpenCRVS is already piloted in Bangladesh, on its way to be implemented in Zambia
The Reference architecture from OpenCRVS
The root of these all point back to @UN and @WorldBank Different systems are just different implementations by different set of software vendors / nation states

Repeat after me: #FASTag is an asset monitoring technology for the lenders (highway traffic measurement for infrastructure assets & vehicle control -- toll block / geo-fence -- for vehicle loans) masquerading as toll collection technology providing convenience.
Repeat after me: #BBPS is an investment lead generation technology for the lenders (consumption data of utilities for infrastructure for equity investments & family consumption/scoring for household finance) masquerading as bill collection technology providing convenience.
Repeat after me: #GSTN is a trade surveillance technology masquerading as simplified(!!) tax collection technology.
A thread on #UPI PSPs who come in all shapes and sizes, Some history from 2016, some thoughts on bank led model, API gatekeeping, unbundling of #UPI, hierarchy of players, business impact.
#UPI hit the market with ~18 banks going live in July 2016. All of them released an app, had their own PSP backends, were issuers. A week later @PhonePe_ became the first non-bank PSP with an YesBank partnership operating its own PSP backend.
Days later few more apps built by startups hit. All of them with YesBank partnership, using Yesbank PSP backend. SBI and HDFC were largely holdouts to UPI, did not have choice but to launch post #DeMo
Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.
Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.
Thread on Billgates connection to #Aadhaar. Does he know enough to comment (of course he knows a lot more, deep intentions, interests). Now that he himself has repeated the fact that, his "charity",WB are interested in it, like to fund the initiatives, lets look at larger picture
Read "Digital Poverty Stack". I will summarize these posts
I dont have any soft spots for @NandanNilekani, but this needs demystifying for people to see larger picture and not get personal, potshot happy and forget, but its important to understand what ROHINI is, what the healthcare agenda is, so Thread.
IIB is registered society, promoted by insurance industry as an agency to provide sector level cooperation. Regulators : Industry bodies :: RBI-TRAI-IRDA : IBA / NPCI-COAI-IIB. These industry organizations exist to shape larger policy around industry to safeguard themselves
IIB was formed in *2009* and ROHINI is health insurance market analyzing product which the insurance industry needs. That they have effectively lobbied regulator IRDA to make it mandatory is another thing, all these before *Modi care*
