According to confirmed sources, Madhya Pradesh government led by Kamal Nath is planning to bring out a new kind of identity card for people. It is said that the government is studying the draft proposal of coming out with a common I-card for all the citizens of the state.

The main aim is to eliminate the need for carrying multiple documents. Currently, many different kinds of documents are needed in case one wants to avail the benefits of government welfare schemes.

In a session with The Indian Express staff, Minister of Public Relations for Madhya Pradesh state, P C Sharma, said that the photo identity card will carry a unique number. It will have basic details such as a name, address and phone number of the holder. It is also expected that the proposed car will sport a QR code. However, he didn’t provide any more details as on when the government is planning to roll out this new card.

The Minister said that the move is aimed towards making the idea of “one state one identity” a reality. He also said that the card will be linked with the Aadhar number of the citizens.

Any more details regarding the proposed card are not out yet. Speaking on the matter, RTI activist Ajay Dubey expressed his concerns and said that the proposed I-card will pose a threat to privacy. He also questioned the credibility of such a card.
