Unique Identification (UID) for Indian Citizens

Indian Citizens will soon get a single Smart Card containing a Unique Identification (UID) that will be linked to documents like the Voter’s ID, Passport, Driving Licence etc. The key benefit will be that when you produce the UID, all details that are required for verification while transacting with government and private agencies, will be accessible in one shot. A side benefit is that, say, if you changed your residential address, you will not need to liaise with different agencies to get your various documents modified/updated. One change in the UID and all official records will reflect this change.

Looks like happy days are ’round the corner. If this one becomes a hit, living in India may never be the same again!
