NADRA set to get first Int’l contract

The National Database Registration Authority is set to win its first international contract to computerize driving licences in Bangladesh, NADRA sources said Monday.
An agreement in principle has been reached between NADRA and the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority, which will be formally signed on Wednesday in Dhaka, they said, without mentioning the cost of the project.
A NADRA official said the contract would be an evidence of international trust in the organization’s performance and efficiency.
NADRA was established in 2000 to computerize the national identity cards, a task it has been successfully carrying out.
It has also introduced Machine Readable Passport in line with international standard. NADRA has been placed by international reviewers among the world’s top 50 software developers, according to officials.
NADRA has developed a state-of-the-art Vehicle Identification and Tracking System based on radio frequency identification technology. The sophisticated system using a centrally controlled tracker chip installed in vehicles helps control theft, besides other uses.
