India plans multi-purpose national ID card for citizens

The Government of India proposed to issue multi-purpose national identity (smart) card (MNIC) to the citizens in the country.

New Delhi: The Government of India proposed to issue Multi-purpose National Identity (smart) Card (MNIC) to the citizens in the country.

In a communication sent to the Rajya Sabha, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs Manikrao H Gavit said that the project envisages providing unique national identity number (NIN) to each person in the National Population Register.

However, keeping in view the complexities involved both in the processes and technology, a pilot project has been under implementation covering a population of 30.95 lakh in the selected areas in 12 states and one Union Territory.

"Under the pilot project, identity smart cards are being issued to the citizens of age 18 years and above," the Minister said.

Gavit informed that the production and distribution of identity cards to be completed by March this year has been undertaken through central public sector undertakings (PSUs).

He further added it has been decided that the implementation of the scheme in the entire country would be based in the light of the experiences gained and lessons learnt from the pilot project.

INTRODUCATION

The BVM (Biometric voting machine) and IIC (Indian identification card) is proof of concept and authority of India the machine inbuilt with biometric machine and here two types of storage package first one is person finger prints and iris image with person photo second one is store the address proof, caste, PAN card no, current address these are most important second storage box third one is here swapping system

MACHINE WORKING SYSTEM

First connect the Biometric machine with electronic voting machine our finger (thumb)(first pack) print should have on our election voting (IIC) card while voting. The election voting card should put in finger print machine and select the symbol of one party now we should put our finger (thumb) print on finger print machine. When the finger print of our thumb and finger print on election voting card are matched then only our vote valid by using this method we can stop illegal voting.

: IIC INDIAN IDENTIFICATION CARD:

This card filled the your date of birth, blood group,age,address,contact no,DL No or PAN card NO and same your photo this card used everywhere and this important in banking system and stopped illegal loans, and vehicle license it is a Indian id card like pass port it is use in BPL family's it is important to police department some one death person find his/her name and address like just him/her finger touch the finger print machine then Internet tell her/him name and address just five s

in the urban area the citizens are holding driving license, passport or some other i card but in rural area citizens dont have such facilities and they pay a cost for getting identified whenever required. so better this project to be prepared keeping in view the rural poor people.

Multipurpose National Identity Card

The Multipurpose National Identity Card (MNIC) project is an initiative of the Indian Government to create a national ID for every Indian citizen with the objective of,
• Increasing national security,
• Managing citizen identity, and
• Facilitating e-Governance.

Idea of the project
• This project was initiated by NDA government in the year of 2002;
• The project’s importance was underscored by the then President of India -Abdul Kalam in his 2006 Independence Day eve address to the nation.
• 26th November, 2008 Mumbai events of terrorist attack gave a shock to the government and they realized its importance of national identity for every citizen of India.
• Finally in the year 2009 UPA government has officially declared about this world biggest IT project and established “Unique Identification Authority of India” (UIDAI). The chairperson of this authority is Mr. Nandan Nilekani co-founder of Infosys. His position, rank and status is also equivalent to cabinet minister of India.
• In the Interim budget of January 2009, UPA government has allocated 100 Cr. for this project.

Unique Identity Card includes,
• Name, Address and Education,
• Biometrics card includes individual’s different identity like signature, thumb etc.
• Blood group and health related information,
• Financial and investment related information,
• 16 digit identity number will be given,
• Its memory is up to 16 MB,
• Up to 10 years information will be stored.

The initial phase of the project is expected to cover nine states and four union territories. The UID will be issued to people living in the coastal villages of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal. The Union Territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Lakshadweep, Punducherry and Andaman & Nicobar Island. Shall also be covered in this first phase expected to deliver the identity cards by early 2010.

5th Angle of the Square!!!!!!!
• This project gives 1 lack employment opportunity in all over India,
• IT industry will get 10,000 Cr business
• It helps to reduce recession effect
• Wipro is Authorized Advisory member for facilitating this project.

Where it will be useful???
• Tax Payment
• Phone Connection
• To open Bank Account
• To get benefit from the Government Scheme
• Driving Licenses
• Election Card
• Pan Card
Mr. Nandan Nilekani says, It is our “National Passport”.

How to useful for government?
• To introduced any new schemes and policies for the betterment of the people.
• There is a Unity in Diversity in our country. So, it will helpful to understand what is requirement of the people at different state or places etc.
• Government can also focus on implementation of schemes and policies and also evaluate its effectiveness.
• Every citizen can get benefit of the scheme and directly connected with government. There are no any intermediaries.

World Status
There are different countries in the world using this type of card for different proposes.
• China – To use for introduce social scheme for the people.
• Pakistan – To use for distribution of the quota system.
• UK – Administrative effectiveness of the nation and to control on crime.
• Newzeland – To use for the beneficiaries of the different social schemes.
• Netherland - Administrative effectiveness of the nation
• Spain, Portugal, Thailand, Singapore – As a part of national register of the nation.
Most of the countries are using this card for controlling on illegal immigration.

Challenges
• At the initial stage of this project only those people will get this card that possessed ration card means ration card holder will get 1st priority.
• Now question is whether all ration card holder is an Indian Citizen really?
• As per the government record in all over India more than 2 Cr. Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Nepalis are getting benefit of different government schemes by ration card only.
• Even government also estimates that there are 65.2 million people below the poverty line (BPL), but there are actually more than 80 million rations cards issued to BPL families.
• The government has issued a total of 223 million ration cards against a total estimated 180 million households.
• In other words, there are at least 43 million ghost cards.
• To make this unique card UIDAI will take information from the
• Election Commission and Department of Population Calculation and both the departments are well known for doing the mistakes.

We r hearing about multi-purpose national ID card since 2008, but when it is implementing.

Yes this is a great initiative by the illuminati of India. With this implementation we should also completely be done away with CASH. There should only be digital money and every one should be given one national bank account and they should be given a NATIONAL Cash card only with which a person can make purchases, cash should be abolished because Bangladeshi's, communists and the Pakistanis are diluting our cash and there is a lot of inflation because of that.. everything should be monitored so that all sheep be in line. will definitely bring a reform in our country. It will validate the real identity of an individual. It might also act as an helpful tool for the security of our country.
But what is important here is that--it will reach to our rural masses! In our day to day life we face lot of difficulties. It is also not easy to get a VOTER ID CARD so will it be possible for our government to issue it to every single citizen of India. What I think is that before implementing this we need to think about its approachibility. Government of India has to make sure that whoever is an Indian National must get it & than only it will give the real fruit.

Great idea belatedly took shape.
Like USA We must have some kind of social security identity number which
will be accounted for. Ca u believe
me I was Born In Raichur Brought up At Tamilnadu Town served IN BSF for 30 years My name never listed any Voter's list either Raichur, Nor Arkonam and My present Home at Hyderabad I ran pillar to post to get my name along with my wife/children name included. Now it is turn of our daughter in law to be included in the list. I willing to be a part of this issue multi-purpose national identity (smart) card (MNIC) to the citizens in the country. we must take into consideration the illeterate who do not have access to so many modern gadgets how to preserve his card and memorise his number etc If possible a small chip be embedd in his self to avoid any mis use etc that is log way to dream Our Great Nandani Neilkani will come with a solution Let us motivate retired people can use theor sparing time to assist this movement to curb corrupt government officials

This is good step. It will help citizen in many wayes.most impartant it is related to our national security.

Multipurpose national identity card scheme is a great & unique idea.

Yes this is a great initiative by the illuminati of India. With this implementation we should also completely be done away with CASH. There should only be digital money and every one should be given one national bank account and they should be given a NATIONAL Cash card only with which a person can make purchases, cash should be abolished because Bangladeshi's, communists and the Pakistanis are diluting our cash and there is a lot of inflation because of that.. everything should be monitored so that all sheep be in line.

So we are on track... do the great challenging job Nandan Nilkani..

The proposed Multipurpose ID Card is a very good solution, it may be started with government servant, as it is mandatory for government servant to have i.c, as per requirement of office servants has to visit many office and estt, like in customs one has to obtained to deppt i.card and when they are posted in port/airports, seperate i.c is issued which causes loss to exchequer in form of time and issuing i.c,which workouts atleast a day salary to government and the works which suffers

The good news is that the project has again been reconfirmed by the President of India but for sake of project success, I think it should be handled by some autonomous body instead of the existing govt. depts.
Take the case of Delhi Metro Rail, it has been well led and implemented by Mr. E. Sreedharan, similar sort of body and person should be identified for this proejct to make it a huge success.

i have developed a simple individual ientification system. lot better than the present mnic. pl communicate in this regard. i calim to be the world's best e-governance system. unbelievably simple and useful to complete many goverment applications like pan card, ration card, passport, caste certificate, banking, income tax department etc.

So far, there have been no tests/pilots conducted on the multipurpose nature of this valuable card. This should be done early to plan for future implementation, as learnings will take time.

One good step taken in this regard is to increase the memory of smart card to 64K so that it can store more data and hence be used for more applications.

Another good step, without putting much further thought would to be make it a contactless smart card, which is more durable in nature, and proven worldwide.

I am sure there has been enough learning now. We can start at least by immediately standardizing the Unique ID structure and minimum information requirement of an individual, so that it can be followed by various other eGovernance initiatives and would lead to consolidation of various people databases across the country.

This will save time and tax-payers money.

Hi
my suggestion to the government
is inspite of the signature i suggest to put the thumb scan mark on the identification card so that the duplications of the card can be avoided
also suggest to take the document of the icard holder i.e. birth cerificate and the ration card
also put the systems in the government locations so that the entry to the holder can be used thru thumb mark

The proposed Multipurpose ID Card is really a great idea. However, fingerprint should be incorporated compulsorily for identification purpose and the central server system should have finger print for all the citizens of the country. All future issuance of any form of card to any section in the society should have thumb impression registered so that with time we will have a sound database of all citizens (details may be seen in my following posting to iGovernment newsletter: http://www.igovernment.in/site/India-may-set-up-federal-agency-to-battle...
and in Times of India: http://o3.indiatimes.com/mytimes/archive/2008/07/29/4932459.aspx#4932780).
Signature is a good indicator of literacy but thumb impression is better for verification purpose.

Hi,
I am a senior citizen, living in Coimbatore/Tamilnadu. Can any one tell me, where I can get the ID Card for a senior citizen? I got a card from Indian Postal Dept. by paying INR 250.00 But I find it is difficult to convince the cops/officials that card and they say that there is a card issued exclusively for Senior Citizens in Mumbai! Can anyone guide me, please!!!
Thanks and Regards, R.BALA.

A great idea thats getting implemented. Like to know the outcome of the pilot project. Also please inform the states where the pilot projects were undertaken.

How can I apply for this card. Please tell me about the process. Please call me or send full information about this card on my mail.

NATIONAL IDENTITY CARD will definitely bring a reform in our country. It will validate the real identity of an individual. It might also act as an helpful tool for the security of our country. But what is important here is that--it will reach to our rural masses! In our day to day life we face lot of difficulties. It is also not easy to get a VOTER ID CARD so will it be possible for our government to issue it to every single citizen of India.

From the National Security point of view, this MNIC is not going to serve the purpose. I have a suggestion which could be considered. Instead of issuing a dozen cards to a single citizen, it is better to issue a single card with a unique number to a single citizen for a number of purposes. For eg. If I had the same number as my election ID, PAN no, TIN no, Passport no, Driving License no, ppf no, Bank account no, demat account no, etc, etc. Then corruption and terrorism will cease to exist. What's more. I have just made a successful formulation and my dream project can benefit every citizen of our country.

We should make it compulsory, and to get it we must sign the common man rights and duty. No caste should be displayed please only district and the country. This should be a weapon, to do the daily basic things, and if you want to be part of the society, and get jobs, we must be obliged to sign the common man act. All Indians

Multipurpose national identity card scheme is a great idea and every Indian must apply for it to save the country from any terrorist attack and security breach.

Excellent decision taken on NMI Card ! I would suggest that steps should be taken to strictly avoid data error both in English language & local languages too, if any. Initially the project should be excuated in different parts of the country and then rolled out nation wide.

The Unique Identity Card should have reference of the date of birth of the citizen which will be most useful. I have developed a concept and I am ready to share the same for best use Prakash Dikshit 09819693195 thane Maharashtra

Reading & hearing a lot on the topic from long time. We already have lot of learning ourselves as well as from other countries. The earlier it is implemented, better it is and that more benefits would be within due course. Major issues & their suggested resolutions are:

1. Bogus/ Multiple IDs for same individual: Avoidable through multiple biometric feature - fingerprint, blood-group, Soundex algorithm & Iris. Creating database from existing databases (PAN, Electoral, PDS, Driving Licences, Passport) would be insufficient and cause more chaos/confusions.

2. Leftout population: Don't think of it at this stage. Let's move ahead, the database of leftout would be build with passage of time, as and when they themselves feel its need/ requirement.

3. From where to start: Let's begin from the day - birth of child (Also Registration of Birth & Death has been made Compulsory under the Act. Let's streamline / strengthen the Birth/ Death Registration System upto grass root level - Govt. Machinery is already existing)

4. Technology: Card - Let's make it RFID based Smart Card with EMV features. NIC has already laid down KMS (for Transport), these need to be refined and made more practicable in current scenario.

5. Supporting Applications: Let's distinguish between the State and the Center Lists. These have least to do as these could be added-upon with time. The exiting requirement is to publish the ID structure (It is understood that one has been done under MNIC, but not yet published). The ID structure should be based upon place of birth + date of birth + sex (As these would remain static).

6. Mimimum dataset to start: Name, date of birth, place of birth, sex, father name, mother name (bio/ legal), nationality, blood group, present address. Latter other more fields could be added-upon.

i need this card as soon as posible
and how i get is to sugess to me , how to apply for it .

tahnks

Huh, these guys will do noting besides talking... India lacks political will!!

i need a photo identity card for nation lavel valuble.

Dear Sirs,
The Multipurpose ID card will be a good step forward. This card should replace atleast the EPIC, PAN and other similar cards. Now I have A Passport, EPIC , PAN and Ration card. For ID, I am able to use only Passport.In EPIC, address is not correct and any number of times you approach the concerned govt dept, nothing is done. PAN do not have the addess.Ration card has the Photo of the 1st family member only and address is not correct in spite of pointing out.
I have the following request to Govt:
1.It is better to have One multi Purpose ID card incorporating all these cards except the Passport. The Passport should be there.
2.It is better to creat a new Dept/setup for this instead of asking the existing depts to do as additional work. The staff(Revenue or Teachers) are not able to do justice to either. Kindly see the EPIC. We are able to achieve even 90% because the staff deployed are from various dept and they cannot be sincere to this job.
3. Pl issue atleast to those who want and apply immediately. It will a boon to travellers going abroad. We cannot carry Passport always. It is more so required nowadays as the security checking has increased.
Subramanian.V

I would like to know which states the pilot scheme has been made available.

Regards,

Vijay Tase

The National ID card seems to be yet another Card which will not replace election card, ration card, senior citizen card, and many other cards. Instead a ID no. (not card) should be given to every individual at the time of birth registration (which is compulsory) and same ID can be put on all above cards (if individual requires), with a provision to updating of Address, Photo, from time to time by competent authority. [quote post="2158"]This ID no. is easily possible by using Akshansh-Rekhansh-Vel (Latitude-Longitude-Date) and can be acronym as ARVIND (IND-India). [/quote]
If this ID is given at registration of birth it is ARVIND Birth ID. There are also possible applications of this ARVIND no. generation.

Initiative sounds very useful. Hope that it shall reduce the rate of trafficking, missing person and will raise the self esteem of common people as a citizen of India.
