Kazakhstan, Astana, 3 May / Trend, D. Mukhtarov /
The two millionth electronic digital signature (EDS) was issued in Kazakhstan, the Press Service of the Ministry of Transport and Communications reported on Friday.
"According to experts, this year, the number of people receiving EDSs will increase substantially due to the appearance of a new personal identification service at public service centers across the country," the report says.
The two millionth EDS recipient is a resident of Astana named Maryam Yerdaliyeva. According to her, she has been familiar with the 'e-government'portal for a long time. Yerdalieva paid fines and did community service, EDS is not required for these. But when she wanted to get address information, the portal requested a digital signature. As a result, she decided to get an EDS.
