Starting this year, citizens of Indonesia would be having an Electronic Identity (ID) Card, thus different from the ordinary (paper) cards that we are having now.
Kompas quoted Dr Hammam Reza, head of the Communication and Information Technology Center of the Technology Application and Study Agency (BPPT) as saying that out of the 172 million people illegible to have ID Cards in Indonesia, 67 millions will get the e-ID Cards this year.
And the remaining 105 million will have the e-ID cards in 2012.
I hope that the use of e-ID Cards would simplify things in life, in the sense that we do not have to make a photocopy of our ID Card, but only mention our e-ID Card Number. Therefore, saving the use of papers.
