This is the result of India trying to promote the model of Aadhaar overseas for which the World Bank has been roped in as a facilitator. Aadhaar is being promoted by Department of Information Technology, Ministry of External Affairs and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma, who served as UIDAI Director-General from 2009-13.
The Ministry of External Affairs also included Aadhaar on the agenda of Indian Vice-President Hamid Ansari’s recent visit to Morocco and Tunisia.
On India‘s recommendations, Morocco is keen on providing a unique identification number to its citizens and create a National Population Register (NPR). The country also intends to use it for implementing social welfare schemes.
