We continue our Identity Crisis with a brief look into Nandan Nilekani, the founder of Aadhaar and Chairman of Unique Identity Authority of India (U.I.D.A.I.).
“I decided that e-governance would be very good in India. We’re good at I.T., and we’re bad at governance, and we can use one to improve the other.”
-Srikanth Nadhamuni, U.I.D.A.I.’s head of technology. (Nandan Nilekani has given nearly $4 million to set up the E-governments Foundation, run by former Intel Corp. executive Srikanth Nadhamuni.)
Padma Bhushan Nandan Nilekani was born on the 2nd of June 1955, in the Sirsi town of North Kannada district, in the state of Karnataka, into the best class India’s caste system has to offer. He is a Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin, meaning he is descended from the Saraswats, a small Konkani-speaking community of Hindu Brahmins: chiefly followers of Shiva, like our Nandan Nilekani is. In India, the class in the caste system you are born into dictates what you are able to do and accomplish in life: educationally, financially and socially.
After a decent education, the doors saved for the Brahmin’s began to open for Nilekani. He was tapped on the shoulder by one Narayana Murthy, to work at Patni Computer Systems. Murthy, with his watchful eye, later brought Nilekani in to be Co-Founder and CEO of start-up InfoSys. Nilekani’s wife, Rohini Nilekani invested several thousand dollars in Infosys’ beginnings.
Nandan and Rohini have two children, (can anyone guess where they go to college?) daughter Jahnavi, of Yale, is married to Shray Chandra, and son Nihar of Harvard. As one would expect, the shelves in Nandan’s home hold multiple awards and photographs of him with various powerful people. Typical egocentric stuff: Show the stars and everyone thinks you’re cool. Pictures include: Nilekani with Tony Blair; shaking hands with Bill Clinton; with a large India contingent in Davos; with Manmohan and Mrs. Singh in the White House with Laura Bush. But I digress…
Narayana Murthy has been dubbed the “Father of India IT Sector”. He is a Kannada Madhwa Brahmin with a net worth of $2.3 billion. His awards include: 25 Greatest Global Indian Living Legends, 2013, Sayaji Ratna Award, 2013, Philanthropist of the Year, 2013, Hoover Medal, 2012, NDTV Indian of the Year’s Icon of India, 2011, IEEE Honorary Membership, 2010, Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship, 2009, Padma Vibhushan, 2008, Officer of the Legion of Honor, 2008, Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), 2007, and more.
In the 1980’s, Nilekani lived in the US, embedded with Infosys clients in Union City, New Jersey and Skokie, Illinois, among other places. Nandan Nilekani is also Co-founder of NASSCOM and as well as the Bangalore Chapter of The IndUS Entrepreneurs (TiE), Board member of London Business School’s Asia Pacific Regional Advisory, he served as a member of the sub-committee of Securities and Exchange Board of India. Nilekani is Vice-Chairman of The Conference Board Inc. and Co-Chairman of IIT Bombay Heritage Fund. He was involved in Bangalore Agenda Task Force in 2000 and awarded ‘Distinguished Alumnus’ by IIT Bombay in 2001. Being a member of the board of governors of the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) has surely helped to keep his open schedule filled, as well as being President of NCAER (National Council for Applied Economic Research, India). Nilekani is, not surprisingly, Chairman of Government of India’s IT Task Force for the Power Sector.
As we have seen before in the types of people we expose, he has a great many titles, positions and awards.
He “won” the prestigious Joseph Schumpeter prize in the field of politics and economic sciences in 2005, the prestigious Padma Bhushan in 2006, the ‘Businessman of the Year’ award from Forbes Asia magazine in 2007, the ‘Legend in Leadership’ award from Yale University in 2009 and was listed in the Times magazine as one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2009.
His list of accomplishments doesn’t end there. Called Imagining India, Nilekani’s book outlines his ideas for India: past, present and future. He was the non-executive Director of Thomson Reuters Plc. since 2007, and is the author of ‘Imagining India’, which was listed in the final list for FT-Goldman Sachs Book Award in 2009.
“I started out with Rs 200 in my pocket, when I graduated from IIT. Most of our wealth, almost 80 per cent remains in Infosys shares.”
Other investments include giving IIT Bombay $5 million for a chaired professorship, an incubator, the school of IT, a new hostel and renovating old ones; building a new auditorium and endowing his old school in Dharwad, where he grew up; contributing to a hospital wing in Sirsi, his ancestral home town. Nilekani’s reform agenda, including, for now, e-governance, urban issues, and climate change. You can see some more of his financial endeavors Here. Here. Here and Here.
Nandan Nilekani and Sanjeev Aggarwal, VC with Helion Ventures who founded now IBM-owned BPO firm Daksh, have come together to launch the Fundamentum Partnership. Nilekani’s $100 million fund is supposed to ‘help cover the funding gap for India’s most promising tech firms’. They may do just two or three deals per year in order to pick out the “exceptional” startups that can benefit from both capital and mentoring.
India embarked on globalization in the early 1990’s. One Jawaharlal Nehru was instrumental in raising the mentality of the Globally United Nations (aka NWO). As his debate in the United Nations against Pakistan shows, he hopes for ‘One World and Collective Security’, rather than an obsession with national sovereignty. A decade passes and Indian leaders desperately work to bring India out of the third world and into the first. Some may say an impossible feat, but nothing technology couldn’t fix. First India brings it’s navy up to one of the top five in the world, as it races against China, then came the technology wave. US continues to push for Military cooperation with India in 2005, and Bush pushes the India-US civil nuclear initiative. It succeeds in the drafting of a maritime security framework in 2006 during Bush’s trip to India.
This is the time Nandan Nilekani rises himself up as the Brand Ambassador of the Indian IT Industry. In 2005, he won the Padma Bhushan and was elected to the World Economic Forum Foundation board. He was also named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
“I became a member of the global superclass, as they call it.”
“In addition to my association with the ruling establishment and political class, I have a clean image and contributed to the infrastructure growth of Bangalore as chairman of Bangalore Agenda Task Force (BATF) from 1999-2004 under then chief minister S.M Krishna.”
As one would expect, Nandan Nilekani has friends in key places. Not only those he hires, such as Chief Product Manager of UIDAI, Sanjay Jain of Google, and Ram Sewak Sharma, a veteran government administrator, now UIDAI’s Director General, but Nandan has his choice of political leaders. He was invited by Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, to take up the Cabinet position, though it put Nilekani in a conflict of interest scenario. That didn’t stop him before, nor did it stop him this time. He joined in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, for Congress. Congress candidate from Bangalore South and IT czar Nandan Nilekani, had assets worth a whopping Rs 7,700-crore making him, perhaps, the richest candidate ever to contest an election in India’s electoral history. Nilekani said his exposure to politics and government functioning over the past five years, convinced him that it was imperative to become a lawmaker to serve the people and contribute to the city’s overall development.
“It’s important to get buy-in from the judges and lawyers. Otherwise, this whole thing is a non-starter.”
“Joker” is a word Nilekani uses often, and to great effect. This does several things: It disarms people and makes Nilekani appear more approachable than he is while at the same time dismissing and demeaning the addressed party. It also allows him to interrupt rambling presentations without seeming rude. Nilekani is famous for cutting off speeches. The Con, manipulation…the art of the deal. Whatever words you use, whatever makes you more “comfortable”, it all boils down to the same rotting infection: Deception.
On the first of July 2014, UIDAI’s Nandan Nilekani met Modi and finance minister Arun Jaitley. With the new government, there had been demands to scrap the Aadhaar initiative altogether. However, Nilekani and the PM agreed not to discontinue this and four days later in a public speech, Modi supported his claim, to everyone’s surprise. This was only a surprise because people don’t understand nothing happens without being planned out. Nandan Nilekani was sought by the Narendra Modi government and made an advisor, in charge of overseeing a “less-cash” economy scheme. A mere nine days after this, the budget allotted by Jaitley showed an increase in the UIDAI grant, from 1,550 crores to a whopping 2,039 crores. Interestingly, it was BJP who didn’t support the Aadhaar initiative during its campaigning days.
After the Aadhaar system took off, the Reserve Bank of India constituted a high-level committee under Aadhaar creator Nandan Nilekani. Members of the panel are former RBI Deputy Governor HR Khan, former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Vijaya Bank Kishore Sansi and former secretary in ministries of IT and steel Aruna Sharma. The fifth member is Sanjay Jain, chief innovation officer, Centre for Innovation, Incubation & Entrepreneurship, IIM Ahmedabad.
Nilekani then became the mentor of iSPIRT which actually had a team that they named ‘Sudham’(meaning: to purify) created to troll anti-UID critics. As usual, there are many decent humanity-loving people out there who do all they can to wake up the rest, one who works on exposing Aadhaar is Anumeha Yadav. Nilekani had to shut it down after iSPIRT’s convener Sharad Sharma got caught operating Twitter handles including @Confident_India, @criticrahul, @draveedian and @indiaforward2, to do vicious trolling. But we already know that freedom of speech was lost long ago.
As Nandan is an influential member of the Davos World Economic Forum (which is just another Bilderberg-type group), let us take a look at India’s activities there. India’s agenda in Davos is named: India INCLUSIVE. (Inclusive, unity, same sales pitch given to join all religions together as well as dissolve all borders in preparation for the “Global Community” aka NWO. Suddenly in 2019 humanity is unable to live together-as we have done successfully for thousands of years…) Asian secret societies, the US, and European royals have been working on creating a world future planning agency. MI6, P2 Freemason, Pentagon, and Asian secret society sources also say there is also a strong push for some sort of world government to be announced. As if we couldn’t figure that out on our own… Sometimes you don’t need inside sources, just common sense.
2004: Davos was the diving-off point for India to jump into the world economic forum at long last, only costing an estimated $4 million. Indian government spent this amount in just a couple of years just as a multinational corporation might plan a major branding initiative. (Which is all it is…branding.) China had already made such a big hit and India felt left out, so after it’s introduction to Davos through Nandan, ‘India Everywhere’ was born: the branding of a country ie. the ability to sell a country. There is no need to brand something unless you wish to make profit. So the advertising began. Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, India’s largest private-sector conglomerate, was co-chair of the Forum. Davos rejected Indian focus for decades…but no longer.
2006: Davos busts out ‘India Everywhere’. Infosys had been working to “brand” india for decades, and gave $150,000 that year to India Brand Equity Foundation to finance India Everywhere. Commerce Minister Kamal Nath explained to the world about the “10 paradigm shifts taking place simultaneously in India. Outsourcing is a story of the past. We now want people to see India as a manufacturing base, as the youngest nation with fortunate future demographics.” Over 2000 global leaders congregated to shape global, regional and industry agendas and to find solutions to global challenges. The Government team was joined by prominent Indian business leaders such as YC Deveshwar, Chairman, ITC and President, CII; Mukesh Ambani, Chairman, & MD, Reliance Industries and co-chair of the WEF Annual Meeting; and Nandan Nilekani, CEO, President & Managing Director, Infosys Technologies. Other CEO’s from India – Rahul Bajaj, Bajaj Auto; Hari Bhartia, Jubilant Organosys; Ramond Bickson, Taj Hotels; Gunit Chadha, Deutsche Bank; Tarun Das, Chief Mentor, CII; J N Godrej, Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Co; Naresh Goyal, Jet Airways; Ajit Gulabchand, Hindustan Construction Company; Ratan Jindal, Jindal Stainless Limited; Baba N Kalyani, Bharat Forge; K V Kamath, ICICI Bank; Nand Khemka, Sun Group; N Srinivasan, Director General, CII; Vijay Mallya, UB Group; Nikhil Meswani, Reliance Industries; Sunil Bharti Mittal, Bharti Enterprises; Lakshmi N Mittal, Mittal Steel; Dhruv M Sawhney, Triveni Engineering & Industries; Malvinder Singh, Ranbaxy and Ajay Khanna, CEO, India Brand Equity Foundation – are part of the Team. The India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) and Ministry of Tourism spearheaded a focused communication campaign to enhance the Brand India.
The ‘India Everywhere’ campaign is built on three pillars: India’s vibrant democracy, growing market, and its promise of assured returns for global investors.
Nandan M. Nilekani was still Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Infosys Technologies, India and Member of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum for Davos of January 2007. Ashok Vemuri, SVP and Head of Infosys Banking and Capital Markets Business Unit, posted for a “Green Davos”. A blog post in response, by Nandan Nilekani, stated: “It is clear that the world cannot have every person with the lifestyle of an SUV owner. The environmental stress and the energy cost of that will be unviable. Hence in a broader view of the Flat World, environmental sustainability and energy efficiency will be just as critical. The good news is that this is on the radar screen of companies like Infosys.”
2011: World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland participants included a 130-member strong, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) delegation from India. The theme paper for the ‘India Inclusive’campaign was drafted by Nandan Nilekani, Chairman, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). According to him, “the country’s (India’s) role as a ‘Goldilocks economy’, where growth is high yet stable and sustainable, makes it an attractive investment destination. And its growing emphasis on inclusive development will aid India’s dynamism in the decades to come”. The programme featured two sessions on India that will look at various economic changes, political priorities and global issues, which will shape the future of India.
2019: Davos theme was ‘Identity in a digital world’. Nandan Nilekani stated about Aadhaar:
“The data is very minimal and it is not a data gathering system.(FALSE) It requires basic details but it is now base for the world’s largest government welfare programme.” (The NWO “order”. )
For such a program, Nilekani said there has to be a political will, bureaucratic alignments and a lot many other things. More than 100 CEOs from India were in attendance. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Swiss President Ueli Maurer, Japan’s Shinzo Abe, Italy’s Giuseppe Conte and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu among more than 30 heads of state/government, CEOs of global corporations, central bankers, economists, civil society leaders, media heads, celebrities and heads of international organizations like IMF, WTO, OECD and World Bank, were among the more than 3,000 participants. The political leaders from India attending the event include Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Union Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu, Andhra Pradesh minister Lokesh Nara and Punjab minister Manpreet Badal.
There are a number of Indian corporate honchos among the registered participants, including Gautam Adani, Mukesh Ambani (with wife Neeta and children Akash and Isha), Sanjiv Bajaj, N Chandrasekaran, Sajjan Jindal, Anand Mahindra, Sunil Mittal, Nandan Nilekani, Salil Parekh, Azim Premji and son Rishad, Ravi Ruia and Ajay Singh. Film producer and director Karan Johar was present as well as former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, New Development Bank President KV Kamath, IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath and Microsoft’s Indian-origin CEO Satya Nadella.
“This fourth wave of globalization needs to be human-centered, inclusive and sustainable. We are entering a period of profound global instability brought on by the technological disruption of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the realignment of Geo-economics and geopolitical forces.”
-WEF’s Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab
As we see, the world now notices India and thanks to Nandan’s success in pushing the Aadhaar Biometric Surveillance system, in a heavily populated country for maximum effect, we are running down the path towards electronic identification, which in turn leads to Implanted Identification, as we have discussed before. This road leads directly to total loss of humanity: free will.
Once you give your privacy away…there is NO RETURN.
So who else is starting this process? Most countries already use Biometrics, however, not every country stores the data, as it is a violation of human rights. The elite’s must have total control, you allow them to strip you of everything…soon there will be nothing left of you to hold onto. Knowing what we know about the elites, it is not a big shocker that the World Bank is pushing for a Biometric ID.
The United Kingdom implemented biometric identification, but then withdrew it, given the extreme instability of the system. A similar debate arose recently in Israel, over a national identity scheme mandating the collection of biometrics from citizens. Several Israeli cyber security and cryptography experts raised protests over security and privacy concerns, as all sane humans should. The eventual law enacted last year made providing fingerprints optional, while mandating photographs.
Countries like Estonia and Belgium have advanced national identity schemes that do not collect biometrics. In Portugal’s Citizen Card system biometrics are stored only on each individual’s card, and biometric matching is carried out “on-card.”
Many countries, including most European Union countries, use electronic-passports that contain fingerprint information of the passport holder, but do not store this information in a central database (nor use this information outside of border-control purposes). Denmark uses biometrics temporarily to verify identity and make passports, no biometric data stored, just everything else. In these cases, proposals for storing biometrics in centralized databases have always been avoided or have led to strong resistance.
China is one country that has gone to an extreme of technology use.
The National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA), based in Islamabad, has developed solutions based on Biometrics and RFID technology and has the largest IT infrastructure in Pakistan with highly qualified technical and managerial resources enabling NADRA to provide customized solutions to any country. NADRA’s Deputy Chairman Tariq Malik was awarded ‘ID Outstanding Achievement Award’ in 2009, at an exclusive ceremony during the 8th ID WORLD International Congress: the Global Summit on Automatic Identification. Malik was selected out of 250 people from 75 countries by international voting of editorial board consisting of CEOs of fortune 500 companies. Like Malik, Nandan Nilekani won ID Limelight Award given to a person who has attracted the highest media attention. He was given the award “For being the force behind a transformational project ID project in India…which would also act as a tool for effective monitoring of various programs and schemes of the Government.”
-Malaysia’s Minister of Human Resources M Kula Segaran.
On a side note, the USA Government has been very active in implementing the UID Number project in India. One example is that the CIA is deploying tools provided by technology firm Cross Match Technologies for cyber spying that, as a result, may have compromised India’s vast Aadhaar data bank. The CIA’s ‘Express Lane‘ program steals biometric data of its partner agencies. Again, this is something well known by those of us involved in the tech world, and should be equally well known by everyone else.
Today we will look further into the elites “New” System, which they will use to control the world: Digital/Electronic National Identification.
While this is not a new concept, this digital system will hurdle us directly into the global implanted identification chip we have discussed before. So, let us start with the foundation of this system. We already know full well that the elite introduce us to things by way of Problem, Reaction and Solution. The problem is already in this system…More and more countries will be added to the system starting, naturally, with the most heavily populated countries in order that the other countries will have practically no choice. You know, the typical “they have it, we should too” or “I didn’t stand up against it and now I have to use it to get paid, so ok” fools mentality. Thanks to the ignorance of the masses, people will allow their governments to clasp tight the final form of control the elite will need. Under the guise of Unity, more and more individuals will give their fingerprints, DNA, eyes, accounts and all information to their governments, which pool all information internationally together. The ever increasing problems which will come from the insecurity of the system they put in place, will lead successfully to the reaction they long for. The reaction to the problems in this flawed system will be a cry for more security…and the solution will be the “update”, or “upgrade”, the Implanted Chip. National identity gives governments control over its citizens for itsnational security. Not your security, the governments security. You are and have always been the only liability they have. So today we will start at the beginning of this One system in the making.
The company being used to introduce this system to the world is The Aadhar enabled biometric attendance systems. Aadhar means foundation or base. As we always see with the elite products the symbolism and meaning of words is always relevant. People just don’t ever listen to them.
An Aadhar card is not a proof of citizenship, but citizens are required to provide it to receive welfare payments, social services, to do banking, to attend school, to use a phone or device, and companies must be verified by Aadhar to be accepted on bids. This is what they call a Voluntary system, because the law does not directly call it mandatory.
In today’s pathetic world, slaves volunteer for the privilege to be slaves.
The government does not have to state anything to you outright for it to be reality, they call it voluntary then the government entities bully all others until no company or organization accepts business or gives services without it. Making it mandatory by definition, but voluntary on paper. We have explained how the elite work many many times before, you should know this and see how they do it by now and NOT FEED THE SYSTEM. But you do, and every country and every human being is doomed because of it. Anyone can sign up for and receive an Aadhar card, you DO NOT have to be a citizen of the country.
This makes it very easy for almost anyone, be it Indian or an illegal immigrant, to get an Aadhar Card made without any proof of identity. More importantly, they get an Indian identity. From charges as high as Rs 500 to as low as Rs 2500, ‘Aadhar officers’ have agreed to make Aadhar Cards for applicants, without any proof of identification or proof of address. Of course we must keep in mind these “officers” are morally corrupted and abusive, and encouraged to be so, in the workplace. These same morons have been entrusted to securely collect and send the biometric and demographic data of an individual to UIDAI’s data collection centre in Bangalore, Karnataka! In a nation where simple discarded photocopies of ID proofs have a chance of being used in terrorist acts, one can only imagine how large quantities of personal data like this can be misused. But that is the point.
The Aadhar card makes use of registration machines, which are borrowed from private contractors and NGOs to collect information about the citizens. For those who don’t understand how monumentally absurd this is, there is NO WAY to guarantee that these machines will be wiped clean of the sensitive and private information of its citizens after being used. There is NO WAY of actually recognizing if the data is being taken inside India or outside.
Judges on the Indian Court’s bench said, “Aadhar gives dignity to the marginalized. Dignity to the marginalized outweighs privacy.”
DIGNITY OUTWEIGHS PRIVACY?!?!
Since when is “being worthy” better than the concrete, real, sacred, human right to privacy (ie. freedom and independence)? But that is what puts the ELITE in charge over you: by judging if you are worthy. If you have privacy, they can not control or judge you, and that is what they live for. The ignorance of the people we are told to look up to, people in “high places” is breath-taking. This incomprehensible, nonsensical, dribble came from the fat, slimy, mouth of a Judge, an insignificant, narcissistic man, given power to determine the lives of others. In the September 2018 Supreme Court verdict, Aadhar was ruled optional for opening a bank account, but secretly remained mandatory due to its link with the PAN card.
To withdrawl money from bank, one must provide their UID and fingerprints. Unlike a password, (such as the ones used to login to an online banking account) fingerprint comparison is not a binary Yes/No. There is always an element of uncertainty, which is a basicfeature of biometric comparison. For example, the system returns two different biometric matching scores for a single user. Based on how one positions the finger, cleanliness of the finger, sensitivity of the system and a myriad of other issues which help to make this system the most unreliable and insecure form of identification. The marriage of internet with biometric data culminates in the death of privacy and human rights. Biometric data itself has been scientifically proven to be ‘inherently fallible’ especially because of constant decay of biological material in human body. Global experience demonstrates that the trust in junk science of biometrics ismisplaced. (The stolen biometric passport of a passenger in the missing Malaysian airliner has exposed its claims for good.)
But this is already well known by anyone who opens their eyes, and it is just as “secure” as it was planned to be. Since you don’t do anything about it, let the games continue on. The error rate as Nandan Nilekani indicates, even in the ideal case, is close to 5%. For anyone idiotically thinking, “oh, 5% failure, that’s not bad…” let’s try activating the thought process here. That means the above number would be 5/100 * 1 Billion = 5 Crore incorrectlydenied transactions. The situation changes dramatically if the error rate keeps increasing from 5% to 30% as it is observed in states like Telangana. The biometric authentication system is fragile, therefore unstable and insecure. Once again, the elite’s use of this system is, in itself, a huge Lulz for them.
The unique identification (UID) project was promoted as “providing the poor with an identity”. Once again something given by the elites is sold as a noble, pious calling…when in reality its unnecessary, to say the least. Then, it was about de-duplicating the entire Indian population: each person would have one unique number. (After all, “we are one” is the “New Age” BS idea they are selling to condition you into the Hive Mindset of Singularity…once we are all droids after being implanted with the elite’s technology, we will be: as that is what the ‘we are one’ programming is for!!!) THEN the Aadhar system was marketed as if it were to create businesses for private companies, so Section 57 of the Aadhar Act was enacted as a money Bill. Then it became a means of enforcing the cashless economy. Then data as property and the exploitation of the UID number for making people leave detailed digital footprints became the game. Then it became a precondition for undeserved and socioeconomically vulnerable people to get any manner of state assistance. Then, from denial of entitlements if a person is not enrolled or does not seed their number.
It has reached a point where not having a UID number will force you to commit an offense.
Because you want to pay your taxes, but you cannot, because the government will refuse to accept tax payment from you if you do not give them your UID number. And they will cancel your PAN card and then levy a penalty because you do not have a PAN card. Read much more here.
Another false claim from Aadhar is that the the system will help Food Security. Yet another thing Man before elite governments never had to worry about. This world is completely inside out and no one even gets it. One villager said,
“Hey this is my name, but I am not getting my monthly ration that is mentioned here. The dealer is giving me ration in alternative months. How is it possible? My entitlement is linked to Aadhar!”
Other villagers also reacted similarly. The lesson: the system with Aadhar in place is manipulable. BIG SHOCK! In a series of visits made by the volunteers of right to food campaign to the ration shops in Delhi, it was found that nearly 60% of shops are CLOSED and information on the display board about the beneficiary details was not updated.
Internet connectivity issues have led to people’s fingerprints not going through at ration stations in rural India. Similar problems have been faced by people who have suffered injuries to their fingers, while others have faced authentication errors because of glitches or mistakes in the system. If people’s Aadhar biometrics are not being recognized, and Aadhar is then made mandatory for them to get their pensions or even as an ID at a hospital, they’re in trouble. We have already mentioned in our discussions about Quantum Computing and 4 and 5G how internet service will continue to get “worse” for no reason, to push the “better, faster, stronger” 5G system into play. Once again, these agendas always fit together perfectly: this is how it’s done.
Some History about the coming E or “Smart” system of Identity.
The call for a verifiable registry of citizens got traction in the aftermath of the India-Pakistan Kargil War of 1999.
2008, a few “little known” private interests began actively lobbying to take the task of registry building out of the hands of the government, turning it over to a consortium of software companies led by the elites Indian IT Poster-Boy, Nandan Nilekani.
Multiple judgements and hearings by the Supreme Court of India expressed deep concerns about Aadhar and sought to limit its use.
The Aadhar lobby dodged all hurdles by exploiting legal loopholes and changing its stated aims and objectives.
Bitcoin was launched 25 days before UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) was established on Jan 28, 2009.
28 January 2009 The UIDAI was established
23 June 2009 Nandan Nilekani, the co-founder of Infosys, was appointed by the then-government, UPA, to head the project.
By the end of 2009, Aadhar stopped talking about policing and security and reinvented itself as a project that would help make India’s welfare schemes more efficient.
Top Down Enrolment: In July 2010 UIDAI published a list 15 of agencies which were qualified to provide training to personnel to be involved in the enrolment process. It also published a list of 220 agencies that were qualified to take part in the enrolment process.
Authentication: On 7 February 2012 the UIDAI launched an online verification system for Aadhar numbers.
Direct Cash Transfers: On 26 November 2012 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launched an Aadhar-linked direct benefit transfer scheme.
In 2016, leveraging the Narendra Modi government, Aadhar was rammed through the Indian parliament. The still private consortium was converted into a statutory body under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology with the name: Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
On 11 March 2016 the Aadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and other Subsidies, benefits and services) Act, 2016, was passed in the Lok Sabha.
On March 1st 2018 The UIDAI launched the Virtual ID program, and authorized electronic KYC agencies will be required to support Virtual IDs starting June 1st.
The Aadhar database is currently unmatched in terms of its sheer size and has gone well beyond being a repository of biometrics. It is now an amorphous, leaky, agglomeration of databases that connect names, faces, and prints to their demographic (caste, education, religion, etc.) and financial data (banking details, online purchases, wallet transfer, etc.).
In August 2017, a 31-year-old Android developer named Abhinav Srivastava exploited the Aadhar-linked E-Hospital app. The verification system used in the app did not employ any encryption and Srivastava managed to easily spoof identities and make multiple authentication requests to the main database. That in turn allowed him to verify details on behalf of anyone without their consent or presence, effectively rendering the whole point of unique verification redundant.
On February 25, 2018 Baptiste Robert, another Android developer, was doing a routine SQL injection attack and the portal had responded by spitting out the financial and demographic information of thousands of Indians. Baptiste states,
“I managed to find 5 ways to pwn the official Android app. The password of the local database is the same for everybody,” Baptiste said explaining the app hack. “You can reset the password easily, you can deactivate the password, you can modify the app and get all logs. You can modify the app and bypass the root detection mechanism. The conclusion of my research on the mAadhaar Android app was if I have a physical access to a device with mAadhaar installed I can get all the Aadhaar data stored in it.”
The September 26, 2018 ruling of the Supreme Court on Aadhar:
“…Aadhar is used as a means of authentication for availing services, benefits and subsidies. Welfare schemes funded from the consolidated fund of India such as PDS (public distribution system), scholarship, mid-day meals, LPG subsidies, free education, etc, ensure that the Right of Life and Dignity of citizens are being enforced, which includes justice (social, political and economic),” the UIDAI said. There’s the keyword Dignity again…
Apparently the Rights of Dignity surpass the internationally recognized Human Rights.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) wrote a letter on October 1, 2018, asking telcos to submit plans to close down their Aadhar-based authentication systems in line with the Supreme Courts order. The biometric authority further warned that if the “authority” did not receive the action plan for the telcos exit of the Aadhar system, within the stipulated timeline, “the authentication services shall be terminated without any further notice”. The UIDAI further said the operators should accept all requests for de-linking the Aadhar from the mobile number and should do fresh KYCs following DoT’s rules within six months from the date of such a request to avoid de-activation of the number. Moreover, the carriers should let subscribers know of the way to delink their Aadhar from the mobile numbers. This letter sent to the private sector carriers including, Bharti AirtelNSE, Vodafone Idea, Reliance Jio, Tata Teleservices, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd, and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd. took them by surprise as their directions come from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT). Despite the apex court’s orders, retailers have continued e-verification via Aadhar in the absence of any instructions from telcos. The operators in turn said they were awaiting DoT’s directions on how to implement the enormous task of the order.
“Collection of Aadhar numbers of students in the state was done for SATS. This was done to ensure that students don’t leave the education system and also to measure their academic progress.”
“We are bound to collect it and we have to do it. They (the Public Instruction Department) tell us that it is mandatory and we cannot question them about it. For all entries related to the student, the Department now asks for the Aadhar number of the student – to open student bank accounts, issue examination hall tickets and so on.” says Myrtle Lewis, a school principal from Udupi.
“Any identity system by a government is centralized, which is the source of corruption, inequality, injustice, misery and poverty in a massive scale. ”
There have been over one hundred reported incidents of Aadhar-related fraud already. Much of Aadhar’s branding as a transformational solution to India’s welfare problems relied on incorrect data. Government and businesses are pushing people to submit their UID number for nearly every aspect of their lives, to receive welfare benefits such as pension payments, to file taxes and register marriages, as well as to access mobile phone services and bank accounts. This turns Aadhar into a dangerous bridge (“link“) between these previously isolated databases. By now, more than 80% of India’s mobile phone user base, have linked their Aadhar to their phone number. Everything linked, everything shared, everything available ONLINE.
India’s inefficient, unsecured centralized data system offers a cautionarytale for the rest of the world. Electronic records for citizens can, in theory, improve public services and reduce administrative costs. But as we all know, theories are pointless and mean nothing but a waste of everyone’s time.
Centralized electronic records reduce cost by spending its citizens’ basic rights.
This, sadly is the unfitting and preposterous way of thinking today. Everyone stampeding to whatever lights up next in a panic response, too afraid to disturb the asphyxiated little grey cells they have kept dormant for so long.
In case any of you are still capable of thinking that putting any of your private information online is remotely a good idea, as if it ever was…Here are a few more stories to fix your mentality, and (as usual) prove our point, ad nauseum, far beyond any ability to deny it….as we so love to do.
Aadhar Users Information can be found on Google. A quick online search will verify this, revealing Aadhar user information on several websites including the-aiff.com (official website of All India Football Federation), and Starcards India, a private payment gateway service provider. Multiple news reports also suggested that by just typing ‘Mera Aadhar, Meri Pehchan’, which is UIDAI’s tagline, on Google, the search opens several PDF files containing Aadhar information like name, parents name, address, Aadhar number, picture, and even date of birth. This is what we call doxxing: stripping someone of their privacy and exposing them to the world.
Join us next time as we look further into Aadhar, and its “creator” Nandan Nilekani, his connections and involvements. He will be the link to bring India into a NWO under one digital currency, UNIFYING us all as other countries follow in suit. India is the baited hook. Nandan is the link between the tech side and the political side: the elite poster boy we have seen so many times before. But we don’t want to give away all of our fun stories in one letter.
