New "smart" identity cards, developed by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), will be distributed to everybody starting as of 2010.
Officials said that the smart cards that would replace the current identity cards would be used starting from 2010.
The smart cards, which are being used in the pilot region of the northwestern Bolu province since September, would also be used instead of driving licences, passports, social security cards and during e-state and tax procedures.
TUBITAK equipped the clever identity card, which is planned to be used instead of identity cards starting as of 2010, with high security measures against risk of copy and fraud.
Personal information of a person is hidden in the chip of the identity card with private codes.
