FEDERATED DIGITAL IDENTITIES

About Federated Digital Identities:

  • It aims to integrate the many identities of Indian citizens. For example, digital IDs like Aadhaar, Passports and PAN are connected and stored under a different new ID.

About Integrated Digital ID:

  • The state and central identities of the citizens will now be maintained under this new federal digital identity. 
  • Citizens can use their third-party services with this ID. This will eliminate the need for a repeated verification process.

Federal Digital Identities:

  • Aadhaar answered the question, "Who am I?"; however, it is important to find out the other identities of the citizens.  
  • Federal Digital Identities include teachers, pharmacists, doctors, students, farmers, businessmen, pensioners, car owners and others. This identity is very important in strategic policy and skills measurement. 
  • The main objectives of Federal Digital Identities are to reduce the amount of ownership, a citizen has.

How do Federal Digital Identities work?

  • It connects electronic subscriptions and allows for easy paperless data verification. 
  • If a person is registered under the Public Distribution Scheme, he is identified by his Aadhaar. When one finds the PAN then Aadhaar is the connecting ID. 
  • When the same person opens a mutual fund, the PAN is the contact ID. With this, one is linked to PDS, Aadhaar, PAN and the affiliate fund. Now a new number is being created equally in all four.
