Rajya Sabha on the Aadhaar bill claimed that a sum of Rs 14672 crore was saved in LPG subsidy for the year 2014-15 under the direct benefits transfer scheme Related News Eugene Wigner the great physics Nobel laureate once said that in national politics the truth is often less popular than a clever lie Thus it has been with the manner in which the Aadhaar legislation has been pummelled through Parliament In today’s technology jargon then PM Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi were astute political venture capitalists in wholeheartedly backing a radically innovative start-up in 2009: The Aadhaar project Irony died a thousand deaths when in the current charged environment of purported anti-national university campuses Aadhaar is being hailed by the BJP’s minister of finance Arun Jaitley while a standing committee led by the BJP’s own former finance minister Yashwant Sinha rejected Aadhaar as an anti-national project in 2011 That committee devoted an entire section in its report to “national security vs UID” and insinuated that Aadhaar aided illegal immigrants and infiltration from across the borders When the principal opposition party the Congress supports the Aadhaar law in much of the letter and all of the spirit it is suspiciously mischievous of the government to mischaracterise mislead and misinform the people about Aadhaar in its conniving attempts to pass the bill The government’s too-clever-by-half strategy of calling the Aadhaar bill the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Bill was an obvious ploy to subvert discussion in the Rajya Sabha by deeming it a money bill The word “finance” needed to be sneaked into the main element of the bill and hence this title To target delivery of subsidies it is imperative to first determine who is eligible for that subsidy This can be done only with income and other such information which is outside the domain of the Aadhaar programme When confronted by privacy sceptics proponents of Aadhaar defended it under the guise of the Aadhaar database having only demographic information of individuals But now as per the bill Aadhaar’s only purpose is to “target” those individuals for subsidies Either Aadhaar is an innocuous tool to verify the identity of a person or it can glean private information to target individuals for benefits It cannot be both Which one is it Mr Finance Minister The finance minister during the discussion in the Rajya Sabha on the Aadhaar bill claimed that a sum of Rs 14672 crore was saved in LPG subsidy for the year 2014-15 under the direct benefits transfer scheme The prime minister had publicly claimed a similar savings of Rs 15000 crore in LPG subsidy The finance minister and his officials were confronted with evidence by independent globally reputed think-tanks of savings on LPG subsidy being in the range of merely Rs 12 to 14 crore The chief economic advisor of the government in a desperate attempt to safeguard and hedge the intellectual sanctity of these dubious claims of the government says “we estimate that the potential annual savings will be Rs 12700 crore… We did not — and did not intend to — assert that that absolute figure was in fact the actual saving” (‘Clearing the air on LPG’ April 2 The Indian Express) In a response to a Lok Sabha question the ministry of petroleum remarked on August 10 2015 that there was an LPG subsidy saving of Rs 11640 crore between FY14 and FY15 By its own admission these savings were mainly due to a fall in global oil prices Further the ministry revealed that of the 157 crore active LPG consumers who received an average annual subsidy of Rs 3327 each in FY14 137 crore have switched to getting cash subsidy in their bank accounts rather than subsidised LPG cylinders However as of March 2016 only 123 crore LPG consumers have provided their Aadhaar numbers Is the ministry then claiming that the remaining beneficiaries are all ghosts and duplicates If so how do 137 crore LPG consumers receive cash subsidy in their bank accounts And how much of this saving is due to removing duplicates through Aadhaar Whichever way one slices and dices the data it is abundantly clear that claims of Rs 15000 crore of saving in LPG subsidy solely through Aadhaar are erroneous and deceitful So we now have the chief economic advisor of the government clearly saying that there could be a potential annual saving in LPG subsidy of Rs 12700 crore in the future We have the finance minister claiming on the floor of the House that there was an actual saving of Rs 14672 crore in LPG subsidy due to the direct benefits transfer programme And we have an independent think-tank estimating the actual saving at a paltry Rs 12 to 14 crore Again all three cannot be right Which one is Mr Finance Minister In its penchant for majoritarianism and loathing for debates the Modi government has needlessly entered a chakravyuh (borrowing from the Economic Survey) in painting the Aadhaar bill as a money bill and trying to justify it using arbitrary and self-contradictory estimates It is both sad and sardonic that a bill aimed at ushering in a clean and efficient welfare delivery regime should be so shabbily and inefficiently ushered into law Privacy and other issues notwithstanding Aadhaar is undoubtedly transformative as a subsidy

this year (Source: AP) Related News American great John McEnroe expects Roger Federer’s sensational comeback season to continue in New York when the US Open kicks off on Monday Since returning from a six-month hiatus in January the 36-year-old Swiss has been in stupendous form as he has won five titles including the Australian Open and Wimbledon “At the moment we’re just assuming that Roger is going to pull the rabbit out of the hat again” four-times US Open champion McEnroe said during an ESPN conference call on Wednesday “If Roger wins this it will be one of the great stories in that last 50 years or ever I saw him today and I said ‘I’ve got to tell you hats off I’ve watched tennis for 40 or 50 years and I’ve never seen anything like this’” Chris Evert the winner of 18 grand slam titles said she was equally mesmerized by what Federer has done this year “He came back and it was ridiculous” she said “It was like he was a different person It was like his clone has come back” she said One question mark hanging over Federer is his health Back pain appeared to limit his mobility during the Rogers Cup final in Montreal earlier this month where he fell in straight sets to 20-year-old German Alexander Zverev It was only the third time Federer had lost a match this year and as a result the 19-times grand slam champion opted to skip the Cincinnati Masters to tend to the injury “I was sitting on the court in Montreal when he tweaked his lower back and it was really evident that something was wrong with him” Evert said “You never know he doesn’t say much about his injuries and he made no excuses after the match but hopefully he’s healthy” Federer will need to be at 100 percent to compete at Flushing Meadows in the gruelling best-of-five-set tournament where scorching heat and suffocating humidity are the norm Apart from Federer world number one Rafael Nadal and Briton Andy Murray who is coming back from a hip injury that forced him to skip all the hardcourt tournaments in the run up to the Open are the names in the mix as potential winners of the final major of the season If those favorites falter the tournament is up for grabs McEnroe said “It wouldn’t be shocking considering that Roger is 36 and he’s had two majors already so perhaps things don’t go as smoothly as they did the other times And let’s say Nadal wasn’t around and Murray wasn’t healthy then it’s like who is going to do it” “That’s where it really gets open” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsParis: A 400-year-old painting that
