national_register.jpg Establishing a reliable National Register is a must for governments that want to improve their governance and their citizens’ lives. The first challenge is the capacity to accurately register the biographic and biometric data for each individual. The second challenge is the ability to centralize and manage the collected information in a Central Population Register. MOSIP is an open source, robust, scalable and inclusive foundational identity platform that helps Governments and other user organisations implement a digital, foundational identity system in a cost-effective way. "Zetes was a pioneer System Integrator to engage with the MOSIP Partner Programme. We are pleased with the amount of effort that has gone into building capacity on MOSIP. We warmly welcome Zetes onboard to our Partner Programme", says Nagarajan Santhanam, Chief Dissemination Officer, MOSIP. .

Once the Population Register is established, it should quickly be interconnected with other Sectorial System, such as the Civil Register, in order to become the National Register, the sole reference, the information gateway for everything pertaining to individuals and populations.

Using open source solutions such as MOSIP for Population Register or Open CRVS for Civil Register, Zetes provides simple but solid design to :

  • reduce the cost, time and effort to deploy a rudimentary population register;
  • allow local IT staff to deploy and manage the solution without specialist skill sets;
  • give the government the option to adapt and extend the core system to accommodate new needs.

Quality, reliability, accuracy

The advantages offered by the creation of a national register are many:

  • Increased accuracy and coherence of the information managed by several governmental agencies, reducing therefore the effort and the time needed to access, verify and correct the information;
  • Significant reduction of fraud, particularly in terms of tax collection and social security;
  • Much easier information exchange between government entities;
  • Enhanced identity management;
  • Reliable civil register for all citizens and residents;
  • Quicker and more cost-efficient implementation of applications or derivative registers :
    • ID cards
    • Travel documents
    • Social security
    • Healthcare
    • Driving licences
    • Voters’ lists
    • National and regional tax collection
    • Land register management
    • Specific population groups (militaries, police forces, civil servants, etc.)
    • Etc.
  • Quick and reliable statistics :
    • Demographic tendencies,
    • Visibility on the evolution of civil society (mariages, divorces, number of children by family, etc.)
