Cofounder and former CEO of Infosys, Nandan Nilekani is reportedly preparing to plunge into politics and may run for the 2014 federal elections on a Congress Party ticket. He joined the government 4 years ago to become head of the Unique Identification Authority of India, which has issued 415 million online IDs to Indian residents so far; these IDs are being used to provide direct cash transfers of various government entitlements, among much else. In August his wife Rohini sold some Infosys shares, raising $26 million for her charities in water and education.
