The Central government is seemingly working on the successor of the Aadhaar Card. According to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s (MeitY) proposed plan that was assessed by The Indian Express, the government is working on a new model of “Federated Digital Identities" to link multiple digital IDs such as driving licence, passport numbers, PAN, and so on- all into one. This new digital ID will seemingly be present in the form of a unique ID, similar to the Aadhaar card number. The proposed plan suggests the umbrella digital identity will “empower" a citizen by “putting her in control of these identities and providing her with the option of choosing which one to use for what purpose," the report notes.
