ReadMe (Sri Lanka): The Population Registry is an ambitious goal of the e-Government. “According to Ajith Perera – the recently appointed Minister of Digital Infrastructure and Information Technology, there are ‘ambitious’ plans to bring the Government together under an e-Government. As per the minister, the first step towards this would be to create a population registry of all Sri Lankan citizens. Dubbed the “Mother of all databases”, this would contain all the information about the population of Sri Lanka. The database would be available for all Government ministries to share data. Of course this does present a massive security risk.”
