Make proper use of NRIC to identify a person

We should make better use of NRIC as a means of identifying a person. It should not be kept private. There is no need to keep a person's name as private. This approach should also apply to the NRIC.

If a person uses the NRIC of another person illegally and without approval, the first person is committing an identity theft. If found, he or she can be sent to jail. The identity theft is similar to theft of property.

Singapore has the advantage of a NRIC system. We can use it toimprove productivity and efficiency in processing our transactions.

We should not lose this advantage due to a misplaced fear of loss or privacy or identity theft.
