Secretariat Correspondent: Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy will inaugurate a gateway server to verification of national identity (NID) card in an easier and faster way tomorrow (Wednesday).

The inaugural ceremony will be held at the ICT Division at 3:00pm.

State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak will chair the inaugural ceremony.

The Prime Minister’s Press Wing came up with the information on Tuesday.

The server “porichoy.gov.bd”, connected with the Election Commission’s national database, will help public, private organizations provide services by verifying NID of their subscribers.

Currently, service providers take 3-5 days to verify NID in providing different services. Now they will get NID verification results automatically by connecting the gateway.

The gateway will help NID verification to open bank account, digital wallet account or other services. It will prevent forgery of NID, make services safer and maintain security and privacy.
