Aadhaar Verdict A Setback For Modi Govt, Here’s How

After months of back and forth over the Aadhaar ID, the Supreme Court on Wednesday said the Aadhaar ID is constitutionally valid, but WAIT! There’s more. The verdict was actually a setback for the NDA government with the apex court de-linking Aadhaar from everything except for welfare benefits and for filing income tax (IT) returns.

Key Takeaways on Supreme Court’s Verdict on Aadhaar

  • Supreme Court upholds constitutional validity of Aadhaar, but reads down certain provisions of the Act.
  • Aadhaar not mandatory for mobile connections.
  • Aadhaar not mandatory for opening of bank accounts.
  • But, Aadhaar is necessary when applying for a PAN card and when filing Income Tax returns
  • Authentication records cannot be stored for more than six months, rules the Apex Court.
  • It is mandatory quoting of Aadhaar / Enrolment ID of Aadhaar application form, for filing of return of income and for making an application for alotment of Permanent Account Number (PAN card).
  • Requirement of linking bank accounts to the Aadhaar card is unconstitutional.
  • School admissions cannot be on the basis of Aadhaar.
  • CBSE, NEET, UGC cannot make Aadhaar mandatory.
  • SC strikes down the National Security Exception. This means, investigating agencies would now require a judicial warrant to access data of a person under investigation.

Supreme Court on Data Protection and Safety

  • Authentication records cannot be stored for more than six months.
  • Provision to keep data for five years under the Aadhaar Act is bad in law.
  • Section 2(d) of the Aadhaar Act read down to exclude metadata of transactions.
  • A data protection law is needed as soon as possible.

Supreme Court on Aadhaar and Education

  • CBSE, NEET, UGC cannot make Aadhaar mandatory.
  • No child can be denied any schemes if they are not able to furnish their Aadhaar number.
  • For the enrolment of children into the Aadhaar system, it would be essential to have the consent of the child’s parents.
  • Children should be given the option to exit the Aadhaar system on attaining majority.
  • School admissions cannot be on the basis of Aadhaar.

SC on Linking Aadhaar to Essential Documents

  • Aadhaar not mandatory for mobile connections.
  • Telecom companies will now accept other documents like passport, driving licence and voter ID for a mobile connection.
  • Aadhaar is no longer needed to open a new bank account.
  • But, Aadhaar will be required when applying for a new PAN card and also, when filing Income Tax returns.

SWECHA SUMMER CAMP 2017

swc17

“15 Day Software Industry Oriented Training Camp” in the Summer 2017 on Free & Open Source technologies (FOSS). The following are the topics that will be dealt in the camp :

1 Python Python is a widely used high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express conceptsin fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The language provides constructsintended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale.
2 Open Hardware

Open-source hardware (OSH), consists of physicalartifacts of technology designed and offered by the open design movementOpen-source electronic prototyping platform allowing to create interactive electronic objects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.

3 GIT VERSION CONTROL GIT is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. It is primarily used for source code management in software development, but it can be used to keep track of changes in any set of files. As a distributed revision control system it is aimed at speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.
4 Linux Adminstration Linux administration is like practically any other discipline–you can keep it to the basics or you can advance to the level you choose. The basics start with an understanding of what administration is and why it’s needed.Linux administration is typically associated with the performance of highly technical tasks, tight security, and management of hundreds of users on a large network. Although all of those things are truly a part of some jobs, especially those of senior administrators, even the single home user is a system manager.
5 VIRTUAL REALITY VIRTUAL REALITY is a computer technology that uses Virtual reality headsets, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment.
6 WEB TECHNOLOGIES Web Technologiesstate that to acess a data from the server we need a webpage.to create a webpage we need some scripting languages they are HTML, CSS, JAVA SCRIPT. Basically these are the major scripting languages to build a website.
7 INTERNET SURVEILLANCE INTERNET SURVEILLANCEstate Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, and whether we like it or not, we’re being tracked all the time. Google tracks us, both on its pages and on other pages it has access to. Facebook does the same; it even tracks non-Facebook users. Apple tracks us on our iPhones and iPads.Increasingly, what we do on the Internet is being combined with other data about us.
8 Data Science Data science is an interdisciplinary field about processes and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, which is a continuation of some of the data analysis fields such as statistics, data mining, and predictive analytics, similar to Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD)
9 GIS

A geographic information system or geographical information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics.What goes beyond a GIS is a spatial data infrastructure, a concept that has no such restrictive boundaries.

Swecha Assembly (MVGR GLUG GUNTUR Camp)

Brief Introduction about Assembly and Functional Team:

The purpose of the assembly is to educate our volunteers about our free software philosophy , digital monopoly and digital inequality, The significant role of these phases in the evolution and in the history of science. Without understanding this any volunteer can not contribute to the bigger goal that we are aiming. With proper understanding of these things volunteer can think independently and contribute to the organization, which makes our organization stronger.

– This assembly mainly focuses on our education and very less on technology (we should discuss the technology theme)

Several topics of discussion :

1)swecha freedom box (FREEDOMBOX)

2)History of science

3)Digital monopolisation

4)Net neutrality

5)Intellectual property rights

6)Technology towards farming

7)BalaSwecha
