Clearing the air around Aadhaar status

Post the September 26, 2018 Supreme Court verdict relating to authentication of Aadhaar, there has been a lot of confusion with respect to services where Aadhaar is necessary and where not.
Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for services such as bank account, telecom services, and school admissions/entrance tests.
However, it is still necessary for getting a PAN, filing I-T returns, and availing welfare schemes.

Clearing the air around Aadhaar status
Post the September 26, 2018 SC verdict relating to authentication of Aadhaar, there has been quite a lot of confusion with respect to services where Aadhaar is necessary.

Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for services such as bank account, telecom services, and school admissions/entrance tests.

However, it is still necessary for getting a PAN, filing I-T returns, and availing government welfare schemes.

The new rollout by the telecom regulatory authority of India concerning the DTH industry has caused the subscribers to rethink their choice of the DTH operators and many are migrating to new service providers

The new tariff regime introduced by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has brought a lot of changes in the DTH and broadcasting industry. Owing to this new regulatory framework, pricing wasn’t the only thing that changed, but instead, things also changed on the business side as the viewership, service norms and quality norms were also transformed. This proved to be a test for the DTH providers as now these operators had to adhere to these strict norms and they were in direct scrutiny of the regulator. However, this has helped us in identifying the operators which are providing the best services and proving to be the top choice of the subscribers. So in case you are thinking of switching your DTH service provider, you must go through the below-given options.

Which DTH Operator is the Top Choice of Subscribers After New Trai Tariff Regime?

Which DTH Operator is the Top Choice of Subscribers After New Trai Tariff Regime?
Which DTH Operator is the Top Choice of Subscribers After New Trai Tariff Regime?

Tata Sky

Tata Sky is easily one of the biggest DTH service provider in the country. After the Trai mandate though, the operator was slow to list the new channel packs and pricing. However, it is safe to say that Tata Sky has done a commendable job of introducing a smooth migration process for the subscribers. After the mandate, Tata Sky has launched tons of HD and SD packs for the subscribers in regional languages as well. There are also Mini-packs in the portfolio and combined with the straightforward app and website based migration process Tata Sky has managed to stay on top of the preference list of a lot of subscribers. The operator also remains ahead of other operators by boasting as many as 65 exclusive channels. Furthermore, the DTH operator has recently removed lock-in period on paid channels which is another good news for the subscribers.

D2h

Notably, D2h was the first operator to respond after the Trai mandate came out back in October. The operator was also quick to start the migration process ahead of others and hoped for subscriber addition to its existing base in the interim. Later the operator introduced many combo plans and topped them up with add-on packs in SD and HD and many packs in regional languages as well. Recently, D2h has also put out information about additional connections as well, noting that subscribers can avail them by only paying Rs 50 as flat NCF.

However, D2h subscribers have faced and are still facing a lot of issues related to various channels. In fact, most of the consumers are still not able to reach the company’s toll-free number for clarifying their doubts.

Dish TV is also offering similar combo packs to the consumers since it’s the one who operates D2h. Recently, Trai has issued a notice to Dish TV and D2h for not following the guidelines implemented by the regulator.

Airtel Digital TV

Bharti Airtel’s DTH wing also boasts of an impressive subscriber base of more than 15 million in the country. The operator, after the Trai mandate, introduced many channel packs for its subscribers. To ease up the process in a better way, Airtel Digital TV also made it possible for the subscribers to select their new channels via the Set-Top Box only. The operator also launched lots of regional channel packs, but as of late Trai has put Airtel Digital TV in crosshair after some subscribers of Airtel Digital lodged their grievance about missing channels and black screens although the problem was quickly resolved soon after. While Airtel Digital TV subscribers has the freedom to choose a lot of channel packs, they are often facing issues related to billing and some are even terming Airtel Digital TV’s billing system is completely broken.

Sun Direct

Sun Direct is a prominent DTH provider in the south, and it is safe to say that although the provider does not boast of a widespread network in the North, it has established a solid stronghold in South India. Further, the move of completely doing away with additional slab NCF charges made Sun Direct an attractive choice for a lot of subscribers. Following in the lines of other DTH providers, Sun Direct has launched new channel packs, regional channel and add-on packs in HD, SD. Also, it’s possibly the only operator to offer a wide-range of channel packs for longer durations. For example, Sun Direct has nearly three DPO packs in every language and it’s offering them for a period of up to 12 months.

Verdict

After weeks of noticing the happenings in the DTH industry, we have noted that in terms of the number of channels and number of channel packs, ease of migration and customer service Tata Sky is the DTH provider which has managed to satisfy the subscribers to a large extent. The provider had also launched a similar offer as Sun Direct and Dish TV by doing away with NCF on select channels. The tariff migration is almost completed, but there are still some subscribers who’re facing issues in terms of billing, channel packs and much more.

Do let us know what you experienced with your DTH provider in the comments section below.

June 02, 2019 , ,
Since he took office, US President Donald Trump has been speaking about cracking down on illegal immigrants. Taking this same thought a step further, the US has changed rules for visa applicants.

As per these changes, those seeking US' visa will have to submit details of their social media accounts, which they have been using for the last five years.

Here's all about it.

Want visa for US? You'll have to submit social-media details

Want visa for US? You'll have to submit social-media details
Want visa for US? You'll have to submit social-media details

It all started after Trump signed an order in 2017

The new changes in visa application aren't completely out of the blue. In 2017, Trump had signed an executive order to "extremely assess" applications.

A year later, in March 2018, the State Department had said it would start screening social media profiles of all visa applicants, including those seeking travel visa.

Only those on diplomatic visits will be exempted from this scrutiny.

New changes will impact 14 million travelers

Previously, only those who had traveled to countries controlled by terrorist groups were supposed to furnish their social media details. As a result, some 65,000 applicants went through an extra layer of scrutiny.

But the proposed changes will impact 14 million people. Applicants will also have to submit their telephone numbers and travel history.

The new rule will take off from this month.

So, how will these changes work? Let's answer your queries

Applicants will have to submit social media details in E-forms D-160 and D-260.

"The forms have a drop-down menu, requiring applicants to list the username or handle against the social media platforms, which they have used during the five years preceding the application date," explained Emily Neumann, partner at immigration law firm Reddy & Neumann.

Notably, they won't be asked to submit their passwords.

Currently, the list includes major social media platforms

As of now, the drop-down menu covers social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube. More platforms will be added in the future.

Notably, applicants can write they don't use social media if that is the case.

A State Department official underlined that those "lying" about their social media accounts, will have to face "serious immigration consequences".

This move will keep a check on terrorism, said official

"As we've seen around the world in recent years, social media can be a major forum for terrorist sentiment and activity. This will be a vital tool to screen out terrorists, public safety threats, and other dangerous individuals from gaining immigration benefits," the official added.

Earlier, ACLU had slammed the new changes

The changes prompted a plethora of reactions.

In 2018, the American Civil Liberties Union had objected to the law. The organization had claimed these changes will put visa-seekers at the mercy of officials.

"There is a real risk that social media vetting will unfairly target immigrants and travelers from Muslim-majority countries for discriminatory visa denials, without doing anything to protect national security," ACLU had said.

Expert believes visa applications will now get delayed

Meanwhile, Rajiv S. Khanna, managing partner at Immigration.com, said new layer will delay the entire process.

"Already, consulates enjoy plenary powers in visa decisions. We cannot challenge visa denials unless egregious and obvious illegality can be demonstrated," he said.

Can UIDAI track my activities?

UIDAI keeps only the basic information of the users, viz. name, address, gender, DoB, mobile number, Email ID, finger prints, iris scans, and facial photograph.

However, it does not keep the following in its database: information of sensitive nature such as bank account details, shares, mutual funds, financial and property details, health records, family, caste, religion, education etc.

Will UIDAI receive my bank/shares/MF details upon linking with Aadhaar?

When you link your Aadhaar with your bank account, shares, or Mutual Fund account, these organizations only send your name, biometrics, Aadhaar credentials, etc. to the UIDAI, and not your bank/MF/share details.

What was the latest Supreme Court verdict on Aadhaar?

On September 26, 2018, a five-judge Supreme Court bench, headed by the then CJI Dipak Misra, struck down some provisions relating to authentication of the Aadhaar program, and the Section 57 of Aadhaar Act.

This disarmed private entities like banks, telecom operators, and e-wallet service providers from asking you to furnish your Aadhaar information in order to avail their services.

After the SC judgement, is Aadhaar still mandatory?

Aadhaar is still mandatory for the following services:

PAN: The linkage of PAN and Aadhaar continues to be mandatory, under Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act.

I-T Returns: Since Aadhaar-PAN linking is still mandatory, one will need their Aadhaar card at the time of filing of Income Tax returns.

Welfare schemes: Aadhaar is also mandatory for availing various government-run welfare schemes and for grant of subsidies.

What services is Aadhaar no longer mandatory for?

Aadhaar is no longer mandatory for these services:

Bank account: After the SC verdict, one does not need to link Aadhaar with their new/existing bank accounts.

Mobile connection: After the scrapping of Section 57 of the Aadhaar Act, private companies like telecom operators can no longer ask users to link their Aadhaar with SIM cards.

Schools/Exams: Aadhaar is no longer mandatory to register for tests like NEET, UGC and CBSE Board exams.

Is e-Aadhaar equally valid as the Aadhaar card?

According to the UIDAI, eAadhaar, ie. the electronically downloaded Aadhaar is an equally valid document as the original Aadhaar issued by UIDAI.

Both these documents are accepted by all concerned agencies.

If any organization or agency refuses to accept eAadhaar as a valid document, a complaint can be lodged in this regard with the higher authorities at the concerned department/agency.

Has there ever been a case of Aadhaar data-breach?

As per the UIDAI, all stories around Aadhaar data breach are cases of misreporting. The Aadhaar-issuing agency claims that Aadhaar data has never been breached, and that they use advanced security technologies to keep your data safe.
