Repeat after me: #FASTag is an asset monitoring technology for the lenders (highway traffic measurement for infrastructure assets & vehicle control -- toll block / geo-fence -- for vehicle loans) masquerading as toll collection technology providing convenience.
Repeat after me: #BBPS is an investment lead generation technology for the lenders (consumption data of utilities for infrastructure for equity investments & family consumption/scoring for household finance) masquerading as bill collection technology providing convenience.
Repeat after me: #GSTN is a trade surveillance technology masquerading as simplified(!!) tax collection technology.

Another story on #PayTech from @TheKenWeb, this time on @BharatBillPay #BBPS and NPCI being a behemoth…. Time for thread again, full disclosure I haven't read @tam_arund piece since I dont subscribe.
First up some fact checking on email, tweets. Then some commentary about BBPS, then the larger idea of NPCI being the behemoth, what it means to industry, @CashlessConsumr and the whole data game.
First, commentary on the email from @r0h1n

// Because there’s just no telling when it will decide to become a competitor. //

They are in for it to super control the market, not compete. Even on BHIM in UPI, technically, NPCI is operator, the banks are the players market wise.

A thread on #UPI PSPs who come in all shapes and sizes, Some history from 2016, some thoughts on bank led model, API gatekeeping, unbundling of #UPI, hierarchy of players, business impact.
#UPI hit the market with ~18 banks going live in July 2016. All of them released an app, had their own PSP backends, were issuers. A week later @PhonePe_ became the first non-bank PSP with an YesBank partnership operating its own PSP backend.
Days later few more apps built by startups hit. All of them with YesBank partnership, using Yesbank PSP backend. SBI and HDFC were largely holdouts to UPI, did not have choice but to launch post #DeMo

Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.

Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.

Thread on Billgates connection to #Aadhaar. Does he know enough to comment (of course he knows a lot more, deep intentions, interests). Now that he himself has repeated the fact that, his "charity",WB are interested in it, like to fund the initiatives, lets look at larger picture
Read "Digital Poverty Stack". I will summarize these posts

Part 1…

Part 2…

and add additional context on players.
Note that @India_Stack and Level One Project are parallel initiatives in India and Africa respectively? Why only these two geographies? Why not elsewhere?

Besides the usual guinea pig theory, the other common thing is, these are geographies where "Development finance"

I dont have any soft spots for @NandanNilekani, but this needs demystifying for people to see larger picture and not get personal, potshot happy and forget, but its important to understand what ROHINI is, what the healthcare agenda is, so Thread.
IIB is registered society, promoted by insurance industry as an agency to provide sector level cooperation. Regulators : Industry bodies :: RBI-TRAI-IRDA : IBA / NPCI-COAI-IIB. These industry organizations exist to shape larger policy around industry to safeguard themselves
IIB was formed in *2009* and ROHINI is health insurance market analyzing product which the insurance industry needs. That they have effectively lobbied regulator IRDA to make it mandatory is another thing, all these before *Modi care*
