Providing a digital identity to all individuals is crucial to facilitate electronic authentication for delivery of online public services. The digital identity must be unique, lifelong, online and authenticable. The digital identity should be easily verifiable in an online and cost-effective way. Aadhaar provides such a digital identity that also serves as a proof of identity and address for individuals. If such a digital identity could be linked to mobile phones in a secure manner, it would make the task of online authentication much easier at the level of the individual. As the penetration of mobile phones is high, this digital identity will facilitate the delivery of online services more easily.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome on how mobile phones and digital identity could be linked so that mobile phones can be used as instruments for online electronic authentication of individuals’ identities. The suggestions may include technical architecture and solutions, policy guidelines, process improvements, implementation mechanisms, cost effectiveness, operational efficiency, etc. You can upload your ideas in doc or pdf format.

Please don't subscribe to Aadhar. Those who recommend Aadhar are ignorant. Data is collected, processed and stored by UIDAI using foreign linked companies as Registrars. Let the government come with a citizen card for which data should be collected, processed and stored by government department like post office directly without any private participation. Data should be stored in Government servers located in India under the Government. Till then NO AADHAR. SCAR AADHAR SAVE INDIA.

All Database must be linked so any verification can be done centralize, this will save paper and tree too.
New Smart Mobile phone can be used for person identification process and used for tracking this will help individual and government to reduce crime level and such service must be free so.
All Traffic Signals can be change with access point and police near by can access traffic control as well as lost vehicle and stolen vehicle with this support.

See the news report about danger of using foreign made SIM card. NSC says the SIM manufacturer can copy all data through the SIM. With this set up are we to go ahead. Mobile phones should not be instrument of identity. I may allow my family to use it in emergencies when going to some places. Moreover tracking an individual like that is violation of privacy.
