Bangladesh is looking towards India's flagship schemes of national population registration (NPR) and Aadhaar card.

Wary of increasing threats to its internal security and to implement targeted subsidy schemes for the benefit of its poverty ridden population, Bangladesh is looking towards India's flagship schemes of national population registration (NPR) and Aadhaar card.

Headed by the chief of bureau of statistics, Inam-ul Haque the team will also visit data collection centres in Kolkata to understand the importance of biometrics collection for targeted subsidy delivery as well as keep a check on terrorists and subversive elements like the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen-Bangladesh (JMB).

The move Indian security officials feel can also help India in the long run, one Bangladesh implements the ambitious project, to keep a tab on Indian insurgent groups that often cross over to Bangladesh and even establish bases there to evade crackdown by security forces.

Bangladesh’s Sheikh Hasina government was recently rattled by the JMB’s conspiracy to overthrow democratic government in Bangladesh and establish Islamic state based on Sharia. Several JMB modules were caught by the Indian law enforcing and investigation agencies in West Bengal and Assam from where they were planning attacks on a big scale in Bangladesh.

The charge sheet filed by the NIA in Kolkata special court on Monday clearly states that JMB was conspiring to overthrow Sheikh Hasin’a popular Awami League government and establish a radical Islamic state based on Sharia.
