In many emerging countries, the benefits from public welfare schemes of governments and international bodies do not fully reach the targeted population, primarily due to duplicate and bogus identities and leakages in the supply chain. Hundreds of million of dollars are thus wasted, while the targeted populations continue to suffer. Dr. Sreeni Tripuraneni made it his mission to mitigate this set of challenges, and he conceptualized, produced and successfully implemented the world’s largest citizen unique ID data base, and an end-to-end fool-proof distribution system. The resultant good governance has won him accolades from governments and international bodies.
