The authorities of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu presented projects for the development of technologies, including the creation of infrastructure for the blockchain. Blockchain will help speed up state governance processes.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edapaddi K. Palaniswami announced the state’s adoption of an “ethical blockchain policy.” Tamil Nadu plans to use blockchain to verify the identity of citizens when receiving government services. This, according to the minister, will be a revolution in the provision of public services.
As part of the development of the identification system, it is planned to create a database of citizens of the State Family Database and infrastructure on the blockchain. Blockchain will act as a single source of data for government systems and processes. In addition, the platform can be used to improve state management.
During the creation of the infrastructure for the blockchain, it is planned to create a whole ecosystem in which government departments, startups and educational institutions will work together.
Earlier it was reported that the Indian authorities are preparing a bill to ban the trading of cryptocurrencies.
