Gone are the days when secure ID document was considered primarily just an identity document, it now entitles government services that bring social reforms. This journey from product to service defines how Evidence of Identity (EOI) is the catalyst of change. A change in the way the government does its business of social governance. NADRA’s smart cards coupled with multi-biometric citizen database define eGovt agenda of social revolution in Pakistan. EOI is the key now to qualify for specific citizen centric services or government interventions. With adult registration soaring up to 92%, government of Pakistan is using NADRA’s identity management system to its competitive advantage. In last three years the democratic government made very successful interventions to reach out the people, may it be financial inclusion programs for the most vulnerable women population (Benazir Smart Cards), or citizen damage compensation program for the flood victims (WATAN Cards), or terrorism victim care program for internally displaced people (IDP Smart Cards) or refugee registration program to empower Afghan refugees with an identity under Geneva Convention (ANR Cards) or foreign remittance encouragement program for Pakistani diasporas living abroad (NICOP Smart Cards) etc. Similarly, strategy of tax reforms in which identity of taxpayer is matched with citizens profile stored in identity database is already paying its dividend by increasing tax collection and electoral rolls based on ‘One Identity Card, One Vote’ ensuring transparency and thus strengthening democracy in Pakistan.
