Thank for pointing out to the dangers of giving information readily.
You may also have noticed the unnecessary personal information the authorities in India demand especially when most of information is already with the lazy "BABOO(N)S" of Indian administration.
Although the labyrinthine rules were devised promptly by those who wished to see the Hindu heads down, or in dust, they will vanish from the "COOLIE" administration only after "centuries" like Article 370 on Kashmir.
Hindu naion has shown total LACK OF INITIATIVE to cut bureaucracy and RED TAPE. Everyone suffers, most feel frustrated and some even commit suicide.

Lurking danger Be on your Guard
Dear All, wanted to highlight one very important aspect. In ordinary course we keep issuing and submitting our Know your customer (KYC) documents (identity and residential proofs..such as PAN card, electricity bill etc.) to various people. For housing or car or other loans, bank accounts or even for buying new SIM card we submit these documents. At almost all these places they ask for self certification on these documents. We immediately sign those documents and hand over. Just imagine your self certified copies are freely available in the hands of such persons & those documents can be used by them for Any thing or EVERYTHING! Its really serious and its been seen that in most of the terrorist activities, KYC documents are sourced from the SIM card sellers. Hence, please inculcate a habit of writting the purpose for which you are submitting the self certified KYC Documents so that those documents cannot be used again.
Please share this as much as possible....
