Way back before 9/11 happened, I was in a bank in US and wanted to encash a $200 American Express Travelers cheque. The lady at the counter asked me to put a thumb impression behind the TC. I remember telling her that in my country – only the criminals get finger printed.
Today, in my own country, at my own office, I had to give finger impressions of not one, but of 6 of my fingers to get registered with the Nasscom initiative of The National Skills Registry!
Read what Shri Kiran Karnik, president of NASSCOM has to say ..”to make India the “Fort Knox” of security...”
So what are a few finger prints in the process!
