I am sure Shri. Nandan with all his talents / experience would create HISTORY for the first time in the Indian History by capturing every head of Indian irrespective of age / male / female / under his thumb.
I am sure large percentage of Indians suffer for want of Identifation by any reliable agencies and pushed back in the society with out any benefit due to them.

I also wish that Shri. Nandan would remember to touch the heart of everyone in India since his out turn is going to be an unique one and will stand as a PERMANANT RECORD similar to Passport rather better / best one in the Universe and every country could follow his methodlogy.

His choosing down the line workers must be sincere painstaking group so that none in India should say that they are not given the Uni. ID.

Nowadays, using PRM or channel management software, any business entity can expect a very positive difference on the time it costs to manage channel partners and processes.
