Nepal: No headway in biometric ID project

Government will be unable to issue the biometric National Identity (NID) Card this year if it does not speed up the preparations (The Himalayan Times via @m2sys)
“The process of issuing NID card cannot gain pace unless law minister gives his nod to the NID bill,” the source added.

NIDMC had hired a Canada-based international smart card consultant Ardaman Singh Kohli for 20 months to prepare the DPR with assistance from the Asian Development Bank.
