Oracle to create nationwide database for Indian Government

This article notes that Oracle is working with the government of India to create a nationwide database, consolidating disparate systems into a cohesive whole: 

New Delhi:

The Income-Tax Department today said Oracle Corporation would consolidate the department's existing regional databases into a single national database, a move that would enable mass processing of returns, speedier issuance of refunds, and electronic-filing of returns on a wider scale.  . .

The third phase includes the implementation of a national Computer Centre - complete with Business continuity and Disaster recovery sites and All India Virtual Private Network of all Income Tax offices, and the migration of customised applications software to enable about 13,000 users to work on a single national database.

Oracle has always been a proponent of database consolidation and Ellison was famous for recommending a USA national ID database and a contract with California to unify 270,000 Oracle licenses into a linked state-wide database:

"The 2001 deal, which the state is trying to cancel, would provide Oracle software for every state agency -- an astonishing 270,000 database licenses running warrants, prison records, Medi-Cal files, fishing permits, gun registration and everything else in the government databank.

Oracle says the huge purchase could save the state money by cutting down on training and allowing the free flow of information, with security safeguards, between agencies.

But state auditor Elaine Howle has questioned why the Davis administration would want to make Oracle Enterprise Edition 8i software the standard for the next decade, and risk losing "innovation and flexibility" in its computer systems.

And privacy experts worry about potential security breaches and the notion of a totalitarian state, as Oracle founder Larry Ellison dreams of creating a central "national file" linking all government information with Oracle database software to monitor citizens."
