Making Aadhaar Omnipresent ?

 

 

And making it a  FAIT  ACCOMPLI  ?

 

A 5 judge bench of the Supreme Court well soon hear a petition on the alleged “ illegality / un-constitutionality “ of Aadhar

 

In the meantime , following news caught my eyes :

 

Hindustan Times ( 14 July ) headline :

 

“ Govt slams states over slow progress in Aadhaar linking “

Scores of students in government schools across the country may be deprived of mid-day meals if their states continue the slow progress in getting them enrolled under Aadhaar

 

Business Line ( 14 July ) headline :

 

“ Open Aadhaar enrolment centres in branches , UIDAI tells banks “

 

The Unique Identification Authority of India ( UIDAI ) has asked private as well as public sector banks to set up Aadhaar enrolment facility in at least one out of 10 branches in the coming weeks

 

At present , there are 25,000 active enrolment centres across the country….

There are 120,000 bank branches………..

 

======================================================

Now consider this :

 

  • Aadhaar enrolment centre consists of,

#  A physical space ( 10 feet by 20 feet room ) for waiting of applicants

#  2 / 3  computers to enter data ( name / address / DOB etc ) , of applicant

#  A device to record Finger-Print and Iris Scan

#  6 / 8 employees to man the Centre

 

Already Smart phones are available with Bio-metric Readers ( Finger print + Iris scan )

 

If these phones were pre-loaded with an app { OMNI-DHAAR ? } , where the owners ( and their friends ) can enter ( type ) the desired DATA , then such a Smart phone can morph into a Aadhaar Enrolment Centre !

 

Omni-dhaar will instantly transmit the data entered to the Central Server of UIDAI for verification / confirmation ( ie: no duplication ) / despatch of Aadhaar Card

 

Imagine , millions and millions of Aadhaar Enrolment Centres – without incurring of any expense on part of the government !

 

And those millions of students will persuade their parents to buy them a smart-phone , loaded with “ Omni-dhaar “ !

 

Only last week , Karbonn has already come out with a smart phone with

#   pre-loaded BHIM mobile wallet app

#   Biometric Reader

So , what I am suggesting is not much “ out of place “ !

 

And the government would not have to worry about the Supreme Court striking this down , as “ un-constitutional “ !
