Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy will inaugurate a gateway server for efficient verification of national identity (NID) cards today.
The ceremony will be held at the ICT Division, with its State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak in the chair, said a press release.
The server, “porichoy.gov.bd” is connected with the Election Commission’s national database, and will help public and private organisations provide services by verifying NID of their subscribers.
Part of the “Digital Bangladesh” vision and developed through an initiative of the ICT Ministry, “porichoy.gov.bd”, will evolve to meet the growing need for real-time NID verification, says the release from ICT Division.
Currently, service providers take three to five days to verify NID -- for providing various services. With the new service, they can get NID verification results automatically by connecting to the gateway.
