“I would like to thank Omidyar Network for supporting us in this endeavour which will contribute towards positioning India as a leader in the area of digital identity research,” Srivastava said. Sharing his views, UIDAI CEO Dr Ajay Bhushan Pandey said, “I am glad to note that the Indian School of Business (ISB) is setting up a research initiative around the important topic of digital identity in India.”
