With a government agency, "monetise" is not the main worry. It's "discriminate", "victimise", "marginalise", and several other things.

And I don't mean just "Big Brother ((C) George Orwell) Modi". I mean any government anywhere in the world, really, because that's what our world is looking like more and more.

That said, I agree with Raj in what he said about the NIC. Not sure about the other part though... sounds plausible, but then the google+apple API expressly prohibits it. What do they do that we are missing?
