It’s December already! Link Aadhaar with these 6 services now to avoid last minute rush, server crash

Aadhaar — 12-digit random number — is on its way to becoming the single-identity of over 1.17 billion Indians and their financial activities. The deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar with at least six services is just around the corner, and one must do it on an urgent basis as the government does not seem inclined towards extending deadlines for these even as it extended the deadline for linking PAN and bank accounts.

It is human nature to procrastinate these government work until the last moment, but the chances are likely that you will face problems doing it on the last day. In the past, there were reports of servers crashing when people, in bulk, tried to link Aadhaar-Pan on June 29 this year. It would be smart to link these services as soon as possible in order to avoid any problem.

Currently, the clock is ticking on six major linkings with Aadhaar: Insurance policy, Mobile Number, Mutual Fund PPF, Credit Card, and Social Security Schemes. What will happen if these accounts are not linked? Your accounts would be blocked, phone number deactivated, and your policies will become inaccessible. Although the Supreme Court is scheduled to give its judgement on mandatory linking of Aadhaar with all these services and unless the judgement is out, the mandatory linking before the deadline stands.

Service Deadline
Phone Number February 6, 2018
Insurance Policy (LIC, others) December 31
Mutual Fund December 31
PPF December 31
Credit Card December 31
LPG, Ration Card December 31

For now, you can stop worrying about linking you Aadhaar with PAN and bank accounts as the government has extended the deadline to March 31, 2018. Under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), Aadhaar, PAN and other official documents are required to be obtained by banks and financial institutions from anyone opening a bank account as well as for any financial transaction of Rs 50,000 and above.

The extension of deadline announced is in line with the Centre last week informing the Supreme Court that it is willing to extend till March 31 the deadline fixed for mandatory linking of Aadhaar to avail various services and welfare schemes.

    Mitrons, Link your aadhaar to bank, properties, gold, cows and give up all of them voluntarily just like what you did with "gas subsidy" and old currencies. Otherwise your bank a/c, properties, gold, cows will be forcefully seized by government. You could also be arrested under AML, APL, BPL, CPL acts! Be a good follower of Mahatma Gandhi and link aadhaar with everything and give them up voluntarily. Soldiers are dying in borders, farmers are committing suicide, my pal aadhaar babaji Arun Jaitley is working 24x7 to make sure honest tax payers, businessmen also meet same fate as our farmers and soldiers. Jai Hind.

        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.

          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 is just a piece of paper. Jai Hind.

            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

                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. If the Aadhaar scheme is NOT STOPPED by the Supreme Court, the biometric features of Indians will soon be cloned, misused, and even traded.

                  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' )

                    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.

                        Dates, extensions etc. are all ad hoc. Remains very confusing. Suggest waiting for the FINAL Supreme Court decision THEREAFTER have a 3 month notice period for everything that has to be linked to Aadhaar. I think the Supreme Court will endorse the linkages to Aadhaar.
