 Aadhaar Card,  Aadhaar Card linking, NRIs, mobile number linking, KYC, Green Card, us citizens . The subscribers include foreign nationals, NRIs not having Aadhaar or the card does not have a mobile number registered and senior citizens who either do not have an Aadhaar card or it is not registered with a mobile number.

The Department of Telecom (DoT) in a notification on Friday has directed telecom operators to complete the re-verification of mobile numbers of certain category of subscribers through Aadhaar-based e-KYC process by January 1, 2018. The subscribers include foreign nationals, NRIs not having Aadhaar or the card does not have a mobile number registered and senior citizens who either do not have an Aadhaar card or it is not registered with a mobile number.

In a partial modification of its previous order, DoT has also allowed the IVRS-based OTP (one time password) process for subscribers who have registered their mobile numbers with Aadhaar cards. In the case of foreign nationals, a subscriber needs to provide a copy of his/her passport and visa at the operator’s outlet and the operator’s agent will authenticate himself/herself through the Aadhaar-based e-KYC method to start the process.

An NRI, in this case, will have to visit the operator’s web portal and for completing the re-verification process is required to submit either a copy of the passport and visa or a copy of the Green Card in case of US citizens of Indian origin or similar relevant documents for other countries.

Similarly, a senior citizen who does not have an Aadhaar card can submit his or her valid government issued identity card, but the ‘trusted person’ that will be involved in the process will have to provide his or her Aadhaar number to validate the process. However, DoT has not agreed to the demand made by the telecom operators for more time to implement the authentication process. Government has mandated to begin mobile number re-verification by December 1 to comply with the Supreme Court directions for putting in place within a year an effective mechanism to scrutinise and identity over a billion existing as well as future mobile  subscribers.

        When your bank account gets looted via aadhaar pay, you will call 1947, wait for 3 hours to get connected, the call center folks will simply ask you to visit aadhaar enrollment center, waiting list being 3 months, you will bribe 1000 INR and get an appointment with aadhaar enrollment center to resolve aadhaar misuse, they will ask you to email help at uidai dot gov dot in, you will send 10 emails in 10 days and then get a generic mail, asking you to specify all your details including preferred condom b , etc, you will respond with all details, you will follow up for 3 more days, then you will get a generic FINAL response, "Please lock your bio-metrics in UIDAI , Jai Hind!", after that even if you send 100 emails you will NOT get any response. You lock your bio-metrics, the criminal go to an aadhaar enrollment center and unlock your bio-metrics using stolen fingerprint and keep on looting your hard earned money.

          Aadhaar product is SEVEN years old, authentication still fails for "Half Billion" indians, millions of honest tax payers are unable to link aadhaar with PAN, UAN, etc. #AADHAAR's right place is in dust bin, it has wasted billions of dollars of tax payers money. When your fingerprint gets stolen, printed and used for aadhaar pay, cloning SIM and changing bank password using OTP, your aadhaar devotion will vanish. Jai Hind. 1. 25 lakh families in Rajasthan are unable to withdraw ration even after seeding #AADHAARFAIL with their ration card. 2. #AADHAAR authentication does not work for half billion Indians. 3. AADHAAR authentication does not work even after updating bio-metrics and waiting for 90 days 4. AADHAAR bio-metrics can be stolen, printed and used for #AADHAAR pay 5. #AADHAAR does not work for NRIs, people outside India 6. AADHAR can not be generated if a person's fingerprint matches with someone else's with 60 percentage probability. 7. Rogue government can deactivate #AADHAAR

            1. Link #AADHAAR with everything 2. Your #AADHAAR has been deactivated til you voluntarily give DNA and pay $100 as DNA extraction fees 3. Your #AADHAAR is deactivated till voluntarily sleep with #AADHAAR mongers and satisfy them completely 4. Your #AADHAAR is deactivated till you donate eye/kidney/liver/pancreas You will not be able to refuse once you link #AADHAAR with everything else, since once #AADHAAR gets deactivated your bank, mobile, internet, property, gas, electricity access will be blocked. Stop linking #AADHAAR with anything else now, apply Fevicol in both thumbs before you are forced to give fingerprint, without bio-metrics #AADHAAR ios just a piece of paper. Jai Hind.

              There comes a new scam, "Trusted Person Aadhaar" To uncover the hypocrisy of aadhaar scammers Narendra Modi, Arun Jaitley, Ravi Shankar Prasad, R S Sharma, Ajay Bhushan Pandey. etc. all you need is an "aadhaar identification kit", go to them with camera and say, before I ask you questions, I want to verify whether you are really Narendra Modi, Arun Jaitley, Ravi Shankar Prasad, R S Sharma, Ajay Bhushan Pandey, etc. not some cheap duplicate, please authenticate yourself using my "aadhaar identification kit". If you are in direct contact with MLAs, MPs who are trolling for aadhaar. Borrow an "aadhaar identification kit" from a "Mobile retail shop" and take it to any aadhaar scammer and ask them to identify themselves. HIV people can be aadhaar ghost Leper patients can be aadhaar ghost TB people can be aadhaar ghost Midday meal children can be aadhaar ghost Then MP(s), MLA(s), UIDAI employee(s), UIDAI CEO, TRAI CEO, etc. can also be aadhaar ghost!

                The biometrics-based Aadhaar program is inherently flawed. Biometrics can be easily lifted by external means, there is no need to hack the system. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. So another person can CLONE your fingerprints and iris images without your knowledge, and the same can be used for authentication. That is why advanced countries like the US, UK, etc. did not implement such a self-destructive biometrics-based system. If the biometric details of a person are COMPROMISED ONCE, then even a new Aadhaar card will not help that person. This is NOT like blocking an ATM card and taking a new one.

                  UK’s Biometric ID Database was dismantled. Why the United Kingdom's biometrics-linked National Identi-ty Card project to create a centralized register of sensitive information about residents similar to Aadhaar was scrapped in 2010?? The reasons were the massive threat posed to the privacy of people, the possibility of a surveillance state, the dangers of maintaining such a huge centralized repository of personal information and the purposes it could be used for, the dangers of such a centralized database being hacked, and the unreliability of such large-scale biometric verification processes. The Aadhaar program was designed in 2009 by mainly considering the 'Identi-ty Cards Act 2006' of UK, but the UK stopped that project in 2010, whereas India continued with the biometrics-based program. We must think why the United Kingdom abandoned their project and destroyed the data collected. (Google: 'Identi-ty Cards Act 2006' and 'Identi-ty Documents Act 2010' )

                    A centralized and inter-linked biometric database like Aadhaar will lead to profiling and self-censorship, endangering freedom. Personal data gathered under the Aadhaar program is prone to misuse and surveillance. Aadhaar project has created a vulnerability to identi-ty fraud, even identi-ty theft. Easy harvesting of biometrics traits and publicly-available Aadhaar numbers increase the risk of impersonation, especially online and banking fraud. Centralized databases can be hacked. Biometrics can be cloned, copied and reused. Thus, BIOMETRICS CAN BE FAKED. High-resolution cameras can capture your fingerprints and iris information from a distance. Every eye hospital will have iris images of its patients. So another person can clone your fingerprints and iris images without your knowledge, and the same can be used for authentication. If the Aadhaar scheme is NOT STOPPED by the Supreme Court, the biometric features of Indians will soon be cloned, misused, and even traded.

                      The US Social Security Number (SSN) card has NO BIOMETRIC DETAILS, no photograph, no physical description and no birth date. All it does is confirm that a particular number has been issued to a particular name. Instead, a driving license or state ID card is used as an identification for adults. The US government DOES NOT collect the biometric details of its own citizens for the purpose of issuing Social Security Number. The US collects the fingerprints of only those citizens who are involved in any criminal activity (it has nothing to do with SSN), and the citizens of other countries who come to the US.
