Reminiscing my memories of UID/Aadhar Card.

I would like to share my memories of UID/Aadhar card.Why so now,because I got my unique Identity as a citizen of this country with a unique Identification card.So I’m sharing the mail I wrote to UID team when I desperately wanted to become a part of this magnanimous project a year ago.

So readers of my tumblr blog,try reading this.Hope this will be a Interesting read for you,If not make It Interesting for yourself.After all all the time you don’t do things of your Interest,this is no exception.


Dear sir,

              This is L.Bhushan Reddy,I happened to see the logo of UIDAI (aadhaar),i was very much glad to see such a logo which is very much striking,and appealing even to the common man of this country.
 
              I happened to go through what this UIDAI is all about and it’s objectives,and more over the unique man behind this unique program (Shri Nandan Nilekani, Chairman of the UIDAI) has driven me towards this with a thought of giving a helping hand in what ever way i could for this magnanimous project which is future AADHAAR for this country,I started en-lighting the people explaining what is this UADAI is all about and it’s importance,and responsibilities of citizens to make this become a successful AADHAAR for each and every citizen of this country.

If you wish to give me a work regarding carrying out this program I’m always glad to take up this opportunity and heartily willing to do my bit for this country as a responsible citizen of this country,so requesting you to give an opportunity to promote UADAI.

My responsibilities :

                          1) To carry out the promotion of this program from ground level that is organizing campaigns and en-lighting people in tier-3 cities and in rural   areas,bringing awareness about this project.
                       
                          2) Literally explaining them the benefits of this program,coordinating with various NGO’S,conducting the surveys in rural areas in terms of population,no.of people enrolled in the voters list etc.

                          3) To form as a dedicated unit with like minded people who are heartily willing to offer their services in what ever they could for this magnanimous project.

                  
 Suggestions :
                          Kindly suggesting you the following advices :
        
                         1) To capture the young minds (young talent) of this country (who are heartily willing to offer their services) to carry out this project with a rapid growth,and to make this a successful project in short span of time.

                         2) Pilot start off this project along with on going population census-2010,the statistics obtained in population census make a significant contribution towards preparing and planning for strategies to be implemented in giving away unique identification to every eligible citizen in india through UADAI.

                         3) Keep track of voter’s list,passport holders list,pan card holders list,ration card holders list,and every other authorised identity by respective Governments,which in turn would helpful avoiding issuing of multiple UID biometric cards (possible with developing an online database with all the identity details of a particular person,assigning codes to each identity for future reference would helpful in case of fraud,malpractice by a person would easily be traced.)

                          4) Make it mandatory to fill a form (UID) along with passport application form,driving license application form,pan card application form,school admission form,for taking sim card (make it mandatory to mention UID number),bank application form,voter card application form,and in all forms of identity applications pertaining to which are need to authorised by the respective Governments.

                          5) UID relate it to IT dept,housing department,tourism department,and various other possible departments to keep track of financial transactions made by a person (ex: If a person wish to buy a car,two-wheeler,duplex house,shares  etc etc,he needs to give his UID number above all,this way helps to easily track the fiscal transactions made by that person),the same applicable to various other departments in respective ways (ex: with tourism dept,if a person wish to fly abroad needs to mention his UID,which in turn helpful to track air passengers growth and decline in a particular duration of time,economic class passengers growth,people traveling/travelled to any location in this world could easily be traced,smuggling and other illegal practices could easily be identified etc etc.)

                          6) Tie-up with National Portal of India and keep informing all the latest happenings of UADAI,and it’s functioning,various statistics,census,growth in various sectors etc etc to the people of india through UADAI portal and through National Portal of India..

#Tribute to the ‘Legendary’ Steve Jobs :)
Apple had applied for a phone design patent way back in 1982 itself!!Since Motorola already had the popular DynaTac cellphone in 1980s and looked like a brick, Steve Jobs might have thought of entering the market with something “different” and ornamental for the niche segment.The patent was approved in 1985, but Steve was fired by then. Maybe that’s the reason this never got materalized.Means, Apple had been mulling over a phone even 30 years ago!Wonder how technology would have progressed if Steve was not fired in 1985.

The Unsung HERO of INDIA :
2nd October is celebrated in India as Gandhi Jayanti, a national  festival in India. Most of us, don’t know that the same day is also the  birth anniversary of second Prime Minister of India Shri Lal Bahadur  Shastri. “While I am a Hindu, Mir Mushtaq who is presiding over  this meeting is a Muslim. Mr. Frank Anthony who has addressed you is a  Christian. There are also Sikhs… and Parsis here. The unique thing about “OUR COUNTRY” is that we have  Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis and people of all other  religions. We have temples and mosques, gurdwaras and churches. But we  do not bring all this into politics. This is the difference between  INDIA and Pakistan. Whereas Pakistan proclaims herself to be an Islamic  State and uses religion as a political factor, we Indians have the  freedom to follow whatever religion we may choose, and worship in any  way we please” - LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI  SHASTRI was known for his  honesty and humility throughout his life.Although Shastri had been a  cabinet minister for many years in the 1950s and also India’s 2nd Prime  Minister, he was poor when he died. All he owned at the end was an old  car, which he had bought in installments from the government and for  which he still owed money. He was the first railway minister who  resigned from office following a major train accident as he felt moral  responsibility. #A Lot to Learn for Today’s So Called “NETAS” #

The I.D. Man

Can a software mogul’s epic project help India’s poor?


ABSTRACT: PROFILE of Indian billionaire Nandan Nilekani. One afternoon last December, inside a tent pitched beside a busy road in New Delhi, a group of homeless workers were standing in line for I.D. numbers. They were being drafted into a public scheme known as Aadhaar, launched by Nandan Nilekani, a genial software billionaire, which intends to create a national biometric database ten times larger than the world’s next-largest biometric database. The aim is to help reduce the extraordinary economic distances between those who have benefitted from India’s boom of the past two decades and those who have not. The effort has been called “the biggest social project on the planet.” Skeptics see a threat of state intrusions, or detect patriotic vanity. Mentions Farooq Ali.
India has no equivalent of Social Security numbering, and just thirty-three million Indians, out of 1.2 billion, pay income tax, and only sixty million have passports. The official opacity of hundreds of millions of Indians hampers economic growth and emboldens corrupt bureaucrats. Mentions the headquarters where Nilekani works, the Unique Identity Authority of India (U.I.D.A.I.). If the project is successful, India would abruptly find itself at the forefront of citizen-identification technology, outperforming Social Security and other non-biometric systems. Nilekani co-founded Infosys, an outsourcing company, in 1981, when he was twenty-six. In 1993, he and his co-founders became rich when Infosys went public in Indian. In 1999, Infosys was the first Indian company to be listed on a North American exchange. Three years later, Nilekani became C.E.O., and the company’s rate of growth accelerated, reaching fifty per cent in 2005. He published a best-selling book, “Imagining India,” in 2008, and in it he made a case for unique I.D. numbers. The process of building a government department from scratch after he left Infosys, in July, 2009, was “a huge dislocation” from Nilekani’s comfort zone. Within weeks, he and a small team of civil servants and tech experts had established much of the project’s architecture. Aadhaar would subcontract enrollment, which would be voluntary, and available to all residents. And there would be no I.D. cards—just I.D. numbers.
In September, 2010, Rajana Sonawane became the first holder of an Aadhaar number. Three months later, Aadhaar’s intake had risen to forty thousand a day. Mentions Srikanth Nadhamuni. In India’s N.G.O.s, think tanks, and universities, opposition to Aadhaar has been full-throated. Mentions Jean Drèze. Alongside arguments about social policy, there is also some Indian disquiet about Aadhaar’s threat to privacy. Mentions Mohammad Intezar Khan.
