Silvia Masiero writes in Live Mint, the constraints illustrated reveals that the current Aadhaar-based system does not protect the poor from the backlash of demonetisation. While such a system provides enrolled users with a digital identity, operating in a cashless economy requires devices, access to networks, and a support infrastructure that the system does not provide. As a result, the poor are still unshielded from the consequences of cashlessness, which is now causing denial of primary and life-saving facilities. Digitality is hence to be combined with other means to help those who bear the most severe burden of demonetisation.
