Countries like India, Japan, Australia, UK can do without a National ID card because of other identification documents like Driving license, National Health Insurance Cards, Ration cards etc. But for us, THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION BUT TO ESTABLISH A DATABASE OF INDIVIDUAL IDENTITY THROUGH DIGITAL NID. This could be as effective as cell phone networks if implemented even at the most rural level. The possibility of improvised service delivery is endless. This is one great initiative.
