The India way

India's government is organising one of the world's most ambitious technology projects - to give identifying numbers to more than a billion people. The idea is it will give an official identity to millions of the rural poor, allowing them access to banking services for the first time.

Lesley Curwen talks to the chairman of the agency in charge of the task, Nandan Nilekani, who is a former chairman of Infosys.

Plus, the secrets of India's successful managers are revealed by Jitendra Singh, Professor of Management at the Wharton Business School and the co-author of 'The India Way'.

And Lucy Kellaway looks at the difficulties of getting powerful bosses to retire gracefully.
