Digital ID - an agent for change

Digital ID is an essential tool in the modern age which enables us to prove that who you say you are, and that makes it an important building block for social and economic development. Digital IDs promote working for the good, they are designed for inclusion, and inspires improvements in quality of life for all, while an ID is necessary for availing access to services like education, healthcare, & state sponsored welfare programmes. There are over 1.5 billion people deprived of a basic ID and India has plenty of them. Abhishek will share his thoughts on experiences in India on how they got the system to be inclusive and built the ecosystem of platforms and application for electronic service delivery, as well as how that changed for good for both the nation and people.
