However, he did not provide more details on when the government plans to roll out this new card.

The minister said the move aims to make the idea of ​​”a state an identity“a reality. He also said the card will be linked to citizens’ Aadhar number.

More details regarding the proposed card are not yet known. Speaking on the subject, an RTI activist Ajay Dubey expressed concern and said the proposed I card would pose a threat to privacy. He also questioned the credibility of such a card.
