New Delhi: A study conducted by a voluntary action group working for consumer rights has found that the internet speed provided to users in the country is far below what is claimed by the service providers, and is amongst the lowest internationally.

“A striking finding was that the internet speed the service providers are giving to the users are far below what they claim and amongst the lowest internationally,” the group said.

The study has found out that it is not just the provision of service that will help the country become ‘Digital India’ rather quality of internet service that determines the sustainability of this vision. “It is for this (reason) that the stakeholders are urged to take corrective and timely measures that ensure promising future for internet service by serving the mutual interest of all,” it said.

The audit of wireless internet speed was also conducted in eight states across four telecom circles and it was found that users get much lower speed than what is claimed through this mode also.

“The poor level of internet speed requires the government and the telecom regulator to devise mechanism to improve internet speed in one way or another,” it said.

How will you issue Aadhaar for the homeless, asks Supreme Court

SC told UID must for homeless, but number issued only to those with address
The Supreme Court on Wednesday questioned the government’s version of Aadhaar as a unique identifier which will benefit the poor to access welfare services, asking how will the lakhs of homeless people in the country get an Aadhaar card without a permanent address.
The 2011 Census revealed there are 1.77 million homeless people in the country. They constitute 0.15% of the total population.
“Does this mean that they [the homeless] do not exist for the Government of India,” Justice Madan B. Lokur, who heads the Social Justice Bench, asked.
The context arose during the hearing on the lack of night shelters for homeless people. The court had previously summoned the Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary to explain the lack of night shelters, especially with North India in the grip of a cold wave.
The Bench asked if a permanent address was mandatory for Aadhaar enrolment and consequent welfare services. The Uttar Pradesh government replied in the affirmative.
“So, how do homeless people get Aadhaar if they have no home or a permanent address,” Justice Lokur shot back.
Additional Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta, for the U.P. government, said it would be wrong to say the homeless population did not “exist” for the Union. He said that he also appeared for the UIDAI, Aadhaar’s nodal agency, in the Supreme Court.

Plight of migrants:
Mr. Mehta reasoned that the urban homeless were mostly migrants from the rural parts of the country.
They would have a permanent address in their native villages and would have or could apply for Aadhaar there.
The ASG said he would get further instructions from the UIDAI on this aspect.
The court criticised the Uttar Pradesh government for its poor implementation of the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM) scheme which had existed since 2014.
“We are talking about human beings who have no place to stay. Those who have no place to stay have to be given a place to live,” Justice Lokur observed orally.
Mr. Mehta said the State was alive to the situation and was doing its best to provide shelter to the urban homeless. He referred to the vision document prepared by the Uttar Pradesh government to deal with the issue of urban homeless, and said that as per 2011 census, there were around 1.80 lakh urban homeless in the State”.
