Joy launches NID verification gateway server
Prime Minister's ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Wednesday inaugurated a gateway server for efficient verification of national identity (NID) cards.
The launching ceremony was held at the ICT Division in the capital with State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak in the chair.
Speaking on the occasion, Joy said it was his dream that people would be able to get about 90 percent of public services using their mobile phones, which would help them cut time and expenditure in availing services.
Like the government offices, now many private organisations are getting digitalised and when these organisations want to provide services to people, they need to verify the NIDs of subscribers to ensure authenticity of service seekers.
The gateway server was launched to help verify NID cards in an easier and faster way, the ICT affair adviser said, expressing his gratitude to the ICT Division and the Election Commission for launching such a server.
The state minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak said the government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, is trying its best to reach the government services at the doorsteps of common people.
Palak said transaction of money and delivering services to the people needed to be made easier. "After the gateway server was launched, it would be easier now," he added. -BSS
