Every government would love to keep a real time tab upon its citizens and people. While democracy and constitution in some countries force government of that country to denounce e-surveillance yet most governments around the world are engaging in unconstitutional e-surveillance.

India is one such country that is engaging in unconstitutional e-surveillance through various mechanisms. However, nothing can beat the draconian Aadhaar that has become a bane for humanity and Indians.

Crony capitalists and government hatched a plan to subjugate Indians for perpetuity through the instrumentalities of Aadhaar and Digital India opines Praveen Dalal. People were fooled into enrolling for Aadhaar by citing welfare services and subsidies. Subsequently, real intentions of government were made clear when everything was linked to Aadhaar.

Now gullible Indians are given false hope in the form of rhetoric like Digital India, startup India, entrepreneurship grants, etc. None of these schemes have made any impact upon the quality of life of Indians.

On the contrary, Digital India and Aadhaar have gave birth to the worst digital panopticon of humanity. Now government has the capacity to violate privacy and other fundamental rights of Indians in real time. The sheeple Indians have not been able to ward off this threat as they lack strength and courage to fight against the government.

So a new digital slavery system has been introduced in India that is monitored in real time by digital panopticon named Aadhaar. More features would be added to this digital slavery system so that Indians can never get out of it. This includes digital payments, Indiachain, digital locker, Aadhaar based digital services, etc.

Of course, those who have the capability to think and take rationale decisions are opposing and would keep on opposing the digital panopticon. They must concentrate more upon self defense so that they can protect their Human Rights in best possible manner.
BJP government started projects like Digital India, startup India, etc with much fanfare but they failed to deliver the desired results as the policies and practices behind them are not only faulty but also illegal and unconstitutional.

For instance, Aadhaar project is clearly illegal and Unconstitutional and Supreme Court should Scrap Aadhaar immediately.

Similarly, there are private companies behind Aadhaar, India Stack, etc that are minting huge profit at the cost of public money and civil liberties violations.

So Aadhaar and its uses are not only unethical but also illegal and unconstitutional. Indians are not bound to follow any of the mandates arising out of Aadhaar and its usages.

However, this is not enough. We have to specifically boycott Aadhaar and India Stack so that their poisonous and cancerous policies and crony capitalism can be halted as soon as possible.

And the answer to this cancerous problem can be found out of court as any action before the Supreme Court is just like agitating before the government and these crony capitalists. There is no separation of power between Judiciary and Executives as on date and Supreme Court seems to be acting as an extended arm of Executive opines Praveen Dalal.

Any Bitcoin exchange that is demanding Aadhaar should be boycotted and no trading with such exchange must be undertaken. If need arises, use a foreign Bitcoin exchange that does not demand Aadhaar.

Similarly, Aadhaar or Indiachain based digital currencies would be extremely risky and hazardous for your privacy and civil liberties. You can also be looted anytime without any dispute resolution and remedy. Stay away from Indiachain and Aadhaar base digital currencies and digital payments.

PS: We would update this article from time to time. Stay tuned.
Aadhaar is a totally flawed project that has been forcefully imposed upon Indians. Many have opted for Aadhaar out of pressure and coercion of Indian government. However, Supreme Court has granted a major relief to such people by declaring that privacy is a Fundamental Right.

Naturally, your privacy right empowers you to opt out of Aadhaar completely opines Praveen Dalal.

Aadhaar has created serious constitutional, civil liberties and cyber security problems in India. Indian government and Supreme Court are not interested in rescuing Indians from this precarious situation. Clearly India is heading towards dystopian and totalitarian state and something has to be done right now to counter this position.

So non Aadhaar holders must keep on refusing enrollment for it and Aadhaar holders must start delinking it from everything, block the biometric at UIDAI website and opt out of Aadhaar completely.

Exercise as many options as possible to regain your lost Fundamental Rights and Human Rights Opines Praveen Dalal.
Till now readers of this platform must be aware that we have options of refusal, delinking, opt out and biometric blocking regarding Aadhaar. Collectively they protect the best interest of a person upon who Aadhaar has been imposed opines Praveen Dalal.

Many people adopt biometric blocking method to get temporary relief. However, the timing and manner of biometric blocking is very crucial opines Praveen Dalal. For instance, if you wish to use Aadhaar based E-KYC for any government or private service, biometric blocking may cause unintended troubles.

Government websites, including that of UIDAI, are neither reliable nor user friendly. So if you cannot unblock your biometric at times of need, you would be struck with a bad website of UIDAI forever. So go for biometric blocking when you have decided not to use Aadhaar based E-KYC at all.

As per this article of Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO), you should go for Aadhaar biometric blocking and Aadhaar delinking together. This must be done till you are able to opt out of Aadhaar completely. The image in this article also mentions the procedure to block your biometric.

Further, you should not leave everything for the Supreme Court to manage as Supreme Court has been dragging its feet so far Aadhaar is concerned. Citizens must consider using self help measures to protect their own interests. These self help and self defense measures against Aadhaar include:

(a) Blocking of your biometric at UIDAI website and never using Aadhaar again for KYC or EKYC purposes in future,

(b)  Deseeding or delinking of Aadhaar from all services, whether government or private, where you have seeded or linked the Aadhaar, and

(c) Asking the UIDAI and Supreme Court to delete your biometric database from UIDAI registry and any and all other places where your biometric have been stored.

We hope our readers would find this discussion useful.
Aadhaar was initially claimed to be a tool to facilitate welfare services. However, legal experts like Praveen Dalal have been skeptical about Aadhaar from the very beginning.

As early as in 2010, Praveen Dalal predicted that only those people would enjoy their Human Rights and Fundamental Rights who would be willing to fight back against the draconian Aadhaar and similar e-surveillance projects.

But Indians are so afraid to fight back that even in 2017 they are still hiding in their dens. One can fight for the weak but not cowards. That is why Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) set a deadline for submission of Aadhaar refusal and delinking form so that we can support only those who are willing to fight back.

Now people have the following choice regarding Aadhaar:

(1) Refuse to link Aadhaar,

(2) Delink Aadhaar, and

(3) Opt out of Aadhaar.

Depending upon your requirement, you can choose either one or all of these options. But we at P4LO suggest that you exercise all of these options to get rid of Aadhaar and Scrap Aadhaar.

You can also block your biometric at the website of UIDAI. However, we at P4LO strongly recommend that both biometric blocking and Aadhaar delinking/opt out must be done together to be most effective.

So do not be afraid anymore and start opting out of Aadhaar and then blocking your biometric details till they are destroyed by Government after following a secure procedure opines Praveen Dalal.
We have already discussed that Aadhaar Act, 2016 is violating Fundamental Rights of Indians. Aadhaar Act, 2016 can never pass the test of constitutionality as it violates almost entire Part III of Indian Constitution.

Many people have confused that Aadhaar project and Aadhaar Act, 2016 violates Privacy Right alone. This is  not true. As per Praveen Dalal, both Aadhaar project and Aadhaar Act, 2016 violate almost entire Part III of Indian Constitution and not just Privacy Right.

Of course, both Aadhaar project and Aadhaar Act, 2016 also violate Privacy Right opines Praveen Dalal. So there are many Articles under the Indian Constitution that are violated by Aadhaar and Aadhaar Act, 2016.

But Aadhaar Act, 2016 is suffering from additional procedural and substantive constitutional violations that make it void ab initio opines Praveen Dalal.

People can simply ignore Aadhaar Act, 2016 and any legal obligation arising out of it as that is non est and void ab initio. Government cannot punish any person under the provisions of Aadhaar Act, 2016 as that would be challenged immediately in the Supreme Court.

In fact, the constitutional validity of Aadhaar Act, 2016 itself is pending adjudication before the Supreme Court.

So ignore Aadhaar Act, 2016 for all practical purposes and rely upon the interim order of the Constitution Bench of Supreme Court in this regard.

PS: This discussion would be further extended from time to time. Keep a regular check on this thread.

This question has been asked by mobile subscribers thousands of times yet there prevails an environment of confusion.

Let us clarify in simple terms. Aadhaar is not mandatory for mobile number purchase or re-verification, whether for prepaid or post paid connections.

In fact, the decision relied upon by the government in this regard has clearly mentioned that Aadhaar is optional and it is just one of the methods of mobile number re-verification.

Any circular or notification issued by Department of Telecommunication (DoT) is of no legal significance and can be safely ignored by people opines Praveen Dalal.

You can submit alternative KYC documents for mobile  number purchase or re-verification and neither mobile companies not government can force you to enroll or link your Aadhaar with mobile numbers. 
Techno Legal And Civil Liberty Issues Of Aadhaar / Aadhaar Act, 2016 Of India
« Last post by PTLB on November 13, 2017, 05:56:07 PM »
Aadhaar is an unconstitutional project that is suffering on the fronts of constitutionality, technology, civil liberties, costs, cyber security, privacy violations, lack of data protection, etc opines Praveen Dalal. So there is no single aspect that is making Aadhaar undesirable. Nevertheless, every single aspect is enough to Scrap Aadhaar.

For long Aadhaar was imposed upon Indians though an executive order. Then Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016 was fraudulently introduced as money bill by the BJP Government and an unconstitutional law came into force.

We would discuss the unconstitutionality aspect of Aadhaar Act, 2016 separately. Sufficient is to say that despite the passing of the Aadhaar Act, 2016, there is no practical change in the position.

As per Praveen Dalal, both Aadhaar Act, 2016 and the Aadhaar project violate Fundamental Rights and other provisions of the Indian Constitution.

So it would be naive to rely too much upon the provisions of Aadhaar Act, 2016.

The constitutional position regarding Aadhaar is that Aadhaar and Aadhaar Act, 2016 are unconstitutional and Aadhaar is absolutely optional for enrollment and linking.
Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) has been receiving many queries regarding opt out procedure for Aadhaar. We have already discussed the procedure to opt out of Aadhaar though our online platform available to both pro bono and paid clients. 

So the answer to first question is yes you can opt out of Aadhaar.

Best part is that we would help all those who have already filed the Aadhaar refusal or delinking request with banks, mobile companies, etc within the stipulated deadline.

That deadline is already over, so no new Aadhaar refusal or delinking form submission would entitle the submitter to our pro bono assistance.

Those who have failed to submit the forms within stipulated dates could avail our professional services for opt out of Aadhaar though same online platform.

Now coming to the second question regarding procedure to opt out of Aadhaar.

Since UIDAI is silent on the procedure to opt out of Aadhaar, P4LO has devised its own techno legal procedure that can be availed while exercising your right to privacy.

Privacy right is now a Fundamental Right and this right allows you to opt out of Aadhaar whenever you wish. Neither Government nor UIDAI can refuse to opt you out of Aadhaar system.

We would guide all those entitled to the procedure, stages and manner in which they can opt out of the Aadhaar.

Together we would eliminate the digital slavery named Aadhaar forever and would Scrap Aadhaar.
Privacy is a Fundamental Right and it cannot be curtailed except by a just, fair and reasonable law. As a result, Parliament or State Legislature cannot pass any random law and curb privacy right of Indians.

So all those arguments that there is a law or notification that prescribed mandatory Aadhaar are legally unsustainable as any such law or notification would violate the privacy right of Indians.

Now the question arises whether Aadhaar violates privacy right or not? Although government is claiming that Aadhaar does not violate privacy right but this argument is devoid of any legal substances opines Praveen Dalal.

When the matter would reach the Supreme Court, the Court would declare Aadhaar as unconstitutional for violating various Fundamental Rights as prescribed by Part III of the Indian Constitution, including the privacy right says Praveen Dalal.
