UID Chief putting India Ahead of World. As Reported and Released by PTI other govt agencies to media. A mile Stone for India.

 Identity authentication at banks, gas connection centres or while providing rural jobs will just be an SMS away, said Unique Identification Authority chief Nandan Nilekani on Saturday.

New Delhi: Identity authentication at banks, gas connection centres or while providing rural jobs will just be an SMS away, said Unique Identification Authority chief Nandan Nilekani on Saturday.
“Our project will provide a unique identification (UID) number, not a card. The authentication will be made by using mobile phones,” Nilekani said.

“Once the numbers are issued, we will go for online authentication. Let’s say, you are asking for a job under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS). The authorities will send your UID number to the designated points through mobile phone message. A message will be returned saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’,” Nilekani said.

“The fingerprint of the person can be sent to the central database and receive the authentication within minutes. This will verify whether you are the person you are claiming to be,” the former Infosys managing director said, delivering the Foundation Day lecture of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

“This will not require much personal details to be divulged. It will help provide portability to our farmers, labourers. When they move from state to state, this UID will help them get employment without hassles.”

He said banks, mobile service providers, LPG gas connection counters and many more partner organisations can use this UID to verify their customer. “With the growing mobile phone network, this will become an easy process for authorities to verify people.”

He said his team will roll out the first batch of UIDs in the next 12 to 18 months. “In five years from now, we will issue at least 600 million UIDs,” he added.

“It will cut down the fake or duplicate records. This will enhance the efficiency of flagship programmes like NREGS (National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme), NRHM (National Rural Health Mission) and other such projects,” Nilekani stressed.

He said later when banks or other such organisations seek to identify their possible customers, “they will be charged to recover the cost”.

He said the Unique Identification Project (UIP) is a “huge challenge”.

“Providing UID to 1.2 billion people is a huge challenge. There will be security issues too. I think this project is 10 times bigger than any such ongoing task in the world.”

Word of Advice to Nandan the Chief of UID in India. 

The UID to 1.2 Billion People of India on Just a press of a Button.

There can not be a bigger achievement when it comes to the hassle of verification, and identification processes which a essential part of any documentation for any purpose and activity any India will go thru or is required to engage in.

The area which will be out side the envelope of network will be the Foreign Nationals, and People with Indian origin and visitors and tourists or employees working and visiting India for short term and long term stay.

The stage next could be to bring all the visa and immigration system to and identification no. supported by the thumb impression of each individual visiting India and his or her record of movement and propose of stay and engagement.

It is important the process of developing the similar system for foreigners and people with Indian origin is made in place simultaneously.
 This is a very massive exercise and involves huge data collection and millions of man hours, the initiative of the govt and the Chief of UID is remarkable.

The Developed countries have this system in place since early seventies, and eighties, all those where,  manual and physical identifications.  

To compile the whole data in a single severer and data base with instant search and reverting information is just remarkable. 

Well done Mr. Nandan N. the Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh deserves three cheers for this institutive.

AP CM K. Rosaiah said “I am not a stop-gap CM”, will continue as long as high command wants.

I am… here as long as hihg command wants says Rosaiah.

The Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy camp for the last three weeks demanding his appointment as Andhra Pradesh chief minister in place of his father, the late Y.S. Rajaseker Reddy. On the other hand An unnerved current CM K. Rosaiah insists he will continue in office.
“I am not a stop-gap chief minister. I have been appointed as full-fledged chief minister by the Congress high command. In fact, there is no such thing as interim CM or caretaker CM in the Constitution. I am here to stay in this post as long as the high command wants me,” Rosaiah said.
 
Lakhs attend meeting of Jagan Meeting

He dismissed a 1,00,000-strong public meeting Jagan held near Pavuralagutta in the Nallamalla forests on Friday. “Jagan’s show of strength is obviously an attempt to lobby with the high command for the chief minister’s post. In a democracy, there is nothing wrong in having high ambitions… (but) I am not worried about it,” he said.

“Many ministers and MLAs feel that Jaganmohan should take over as the next chief minister. He was elected by the people of Kadapa for the Lok Sabha. Their mandate is that he should be an MP. He is still young and has a long way to go,” he said.

Roshaih Stood Firmly as a Loyalist and a Friend to YSR

I beleive Mr. Roashiah is a very balanced mind person with a vast experience and a loyalist of YSR, it was the present CM of AP Roashiah who stood firmly in fight against the allegations and counter allegations of the Opposition in the state Assemmbly and out side Assembly.

He is not a big aspirer of power neither he believes in groupism, he is just a obedient worker of the Congress Party and he will be in Power as long as the high command wants him.

Jagan Mohan Reddy’s Base is whole of AP and its People. Don’t restrict him to a Region alone it will be unjust.

Saying so it is also to be understood as along as he is in seat of CM he will do his job with full commitment and responsibility. He will do his best to maintain the momentum set by YSR and his Vision. As far as Jagan Mohan Reddy is concerned he does not need to prove his support thur rallies as his base is the whole of Andhra if we say he is based in idumalaiaya in Cuddapah dist. it will be an embarrassment for Jagan.
 

Roshiah not a Resistance to Jagan as CM. Jagan is not limited to a region in AP, he is hope for AP State.

Jagan Mohan is CM Material. The Stage Has to set for a Comfortable Innings.

YSR’s sudden exit is a very unfortunate thing that has happen to the state of AP. There are infinite issues that are in focus for the high command for consideration to keep AP on the same footing as it was kept by YSR.

Jagan is material for CM’post the question is when. This is a million dollar question which can be answered only by high command and the core committee, congress will not like to put Jagan on loose footing when he take over he has to be for a long innings and free from any resistance and discomfort because it will be a opportunity lost if his timing is not set properly.

One another thing is with the timing it is also important the caution with which the
decision is to be taken keeping the interest of the legacy of YSR, and the aspirations of People of AP attached with Jagna, as Jagan can’t be pushed in the spurt of the moment and handle the legacy of YSR with firmness and care.

Politics is Game of Opportunity, and Stalwarts in Congress taking Stretching.

High Command would take ultimate care all said we are not more in the era of Great Leader YSR, the Congress in time of YSR was one solid Rock with no fishers for the whole tenure of YSR,Politicts is game of opportunity we know now there are groups in State Congress formed by stalwarts and polarizations how small them may be no one can deny there presence.

Roshiah not a Resistance to Jagan.

Jagan is Sure to be CM of AP Only Time will answer when. It will be wrong to see Roashiah as a Resistance to Jagan. This will not be good for AP. and the Congress Party. Roshiah has clearly said he will be in the post of CM till the High Command wants him to be, he is not going to challenge the decision of Sonia Gandhi.  The worst and greatest disrespect to the services of YSR would be if Congress Divides and forms groups on issue of Sucession. Every single congressmen today should be cautious in this respect. The grace of YSR should live.

State to Set up 350 Crore Memorial of YSR at Accident Site.

We should know that it is the govt of Roashiah which with the Tourism Minister Geeta Reddy in Co ordination with Jagam Mohan Reddy is at the verge of announcing a 350 cr. Memorial of YSR at the site of Accident in Nalamala Hills, and develop it as tourist Point, in remembrance of YSR and as a mark of respect for YSR for his Service to the Poor and the people of the state.
