The Smart-Card Distribution Project is already far behind its due goals and possibly the time limit will be lengthened for unfortunate circumstances. But, EC has decided to bring big changes & take everything under their control. In order to accelerate the project, they have decided to purchase 500 pairs of finger-print & iris scanners this month.
Mentioned by several EC officers that, French company Oberthur’s deal will not be extended any more. Due to their utter negligence EC has not been able to distribute past 1 crore cards in first 10 months of this distribution project, experts complain.
Meanwhile, there are over 10 crores voters in Bangladesh. Therefore, EC has decided to take everything on their hand & taking initiatives to accelerate the project by any means possible.
