The majority of Indians will have to give the Government their biometric data. If they wants their ration support to continue.
The Indian Government has started a project to collect finger prints and biometrical data from 720 million people. They have all been entitled to food and fuel at discounted rates, identified by analog Ration cards.
The government has now started a project where sponsorship will only be transferred directly into a persons bank account. To be insisted in this scheme, the receiver of governmental aid will have to give either finger prints or biometric data.
After giving such prof of ID, the concerned person will get a unique digital 12 digit number. This number will be used to open an bank account for the transfer of Governmental money. The number will also be used for other purposes, and if possible, in all communication and interaction with the Government.
The project in India is named “Aadhaar”.
This is what is written on the official website of the Indian government:
Aadhaar-based identification will have two unique features:
Universality, which is ensured because Aadhaar will over time be recognised and accepted across the country and across all service providers.
Every resident’s entitlement to the number.
The number will consequently form the basic, universal identity infrastructure over which Registrars and Agencies across the country can build their identity-based applications.
Unique Identification of India (UIDAI) will build partnerships with various Registrars across the country to enrol residents for the number.
Such Registrars may include state governments, state Public Sector Units (PSUs), banks, telecom companies, etc. These Registrars may in turn partner with enrolling agencies to enrol residents into Aadhaar.
They (service providers) would no longer have to deny services to residents without identification documents.
Residents would also be spared the trouble of repeatedly proving identity through documents each time they wish to access services such as obtaining a bank account, passport, or driving license etc.
By providing a clear proof of identity, Aadhaar will empower poor and underprivileged residents in accessing services such as the formal banking system and give them the opportunity to easily avail various other services provided by the Government and the private sector.
The centralised technology infrastructure of the UIDAI will enable ‘anytime, anywhere, anyhow’ authentication. Aadhaar will thus give migrants mobility of identity.
Aadhaar authentication can be done both offline and online, online authentication through a cell phone or land line connection will allow residents to verify their identity remotely.
Remotely, online Aadhaar-linked identity verification will give poor and rural residents the same flexibility that urban non-poor residents presently have in verifying their identity and accessing services such as banking and retail.
Aadhaar will also demand proper verification prior to enrolment, while ensuring inclusion. Existing identity databases in India are fraught with problems of fraud and duplicate or ghost beneficiaries. To prevent these problems from seeping into the Aadhaar database, the UIDAI plans to enrol residents into its database with proper verification of their demographic and biometric information.
Think if you had to give your biometric data, to be able to open a bank-account?
And if you did not let the Government to take a photo of your iris, you would simply not be able to get an ID-card, and nor be able to buy or sell anything. This would be the very end of you supplies of food.
Seems like India is catching up on the Global effort to electronically “tag” all human beings. It seems like we all will be treated like a commodity, and be forced to accept a new 12 digits number, today used as bar-codes in every supermarket on the face of the Earth.
The book of Revelation speaks about a number and a mark that shall be enforced on people. Those who say “no, thank you” will be forced to go back to the good old barter trade.
Are you ready?
