EYE OF THE E-GOVERNANCE ?


Economic Times ( 17 Sept 2016 ) carries a news report titled :

Top Local , Chinese Firms  Game for Aadhar-ready  Smartphones "


Following are the report highlights :

Micromax, Intex, Lava and Reliance Retail's Lyf have started discussions with Delta ID Inc to explore using its iris-reading technology to make their phones Aadhaar-enabled,  Salil Prabhakar, chief executive of the US-based company, told ET.


Prabhakar said ,
" There is huge interest across the board for it.  With Aadhaar enrolment in India crossing 105 crore, the potential is immense." 


The technology would enable a user to authenticate his Aadhaar details by looking at a phone having a special IRIS camera and LeD. 




"ActiveIRIS is a powerful biometric identifier and this can be a game-changing feature in phones helping establish the identity of a person. At Intex, we are in talks with  UIDAI  and are evaluating the same," said Director Keshav Bansal. 



On July 27, Ajay Bhushan Pandey, CEO of UIDAI, had met senior executives of Apple, Samsung, Google, Microsoft, Micromax and product software think tank iSprit to discuss ways to make handsets Aadhaar-enabled. Samsung is the only phone maker to have already embedded the technology — Delta ID's ActiveIRIS.

Without doubt , this is a great initiative


But what can - and will - make it a true " GAME  CHANGER " , is :

Putting " I "  in the "  Eye "  of the E-Governance  :



By simultaneously  PRE-INSTALLING  the following Mobile Apps  into each Aadhar-Enabled phone before shipping :


·                VotesApp ........................................(  Simultaneous Voting thru Mobiles  )


·                I  SIN  > < U SIN ............................................ (  Delivery  of  Government  Services  )


·                ROMP - A  Panacea  ?....................................  (  Recall  Our  Member  of  Parliament  )


    *           From  BAD   to   MAD........................... .........  (   Mobile based Attendance System   )


·                Digital  Delivery  of  Drugs....................         (  The  Ultimate  Healthcare  Solution  )


    *           BANMALI ..........................................( Banishing  Mal-Nutrition  in  India  )


·               Jan  Dhan  Sarjan  Yojana................... .........(   Mobile  Wallet  for  GST / PPF   )



·              The   March   of   the    Algorithm............... (  Mobile  Counting  Value  of  Currency  Notes in Pocket  )


    *         An  Aadhar  for  Corporate  ?................. .......(   A Unique Identity Number for Corporate   )


·              Digital  Locker  Project ( Digi-Doc )............... (   Mobile App for Documents of Illiterate   )



·              Raining  Cards  ! ................................. ..............(   Aadhar  to  replace  all other  Cards   )


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I wonder if our Prime Minister , Shri Narendra Modiji , will consider to give such a GIFT to 1.3 Billion fellow citizens , on his 66th birthday  !
