 India’s Phenomenal Personal Identity Project


   India’s Unique Identity Project (UID)-Aadhaar (121)

This work by Chetan Sharma is a fascinating and thorough look at India’s project to provide every citizen with an identity card. The technology and process are examined in depth.  By giving citizens an identity card, the government is improving lives in incalculable and unforeseen ways.  .

Mr. Sharma’s paper is a good “book-end” to a visit to the website of our member Addressing the Unaddressed, a non-profit based in Ireland which is providing geocode-based addresses to residents of very poor neighborhoods in Kolkata, India.
