Nilekani said that the assignment which is given to him will be full of challenges as it will require him to interface with large number of people in the government circle.
"It is a new life for me," he said when asked whether he would miss Infosys, a company he had co-founded 28 years ago along with N R Narayana Murthy, now chief mentor of the IT giant.
Also when asked how he will cope up with the multi-layered decision making process in the government circle, Nilekani, who resigned from Infosys to lead the newly created Unique Identification Authority of India (UIAI) said, "I certainly think it is a different world."
"I have my friend Ram Sevak to help me navigate through the system. We understand that to accomplish something, it requires authority to interface with large number of people and to create a compelling benefit story, to articulate that (and) to build a consensus," Nilekani, who took charge of UIAI on Thursday, Jul 24 said.
