The tie-up completes the final step in ECIL's efforts to form a consortium called `NASCENT' (National Smart Card Consortium of Enterprises) that will address all smart card require- ments. The ECIL led consortium is set to be launched in July.
An ECIL release issued here on Wednesday, said the MoU with SETS was signed by Wg. Cdr. (retd.) K. S. Chandrasekhar, Director, Technical, ECIL, and Dr. Vijayaraghavan, Executive Director, SETS. It said
