National Identity Cards to Be Issued Soon

The government is all set to issue National Identity (NID) cards, reports My Republica.

National Identity Card Distribution Management Centre under the Ministry of Home Affairs has completed its preparation for the process.

In the first phase of the process, the government will distribute identity cards to the people at Singha Durbar and from Panchthar. In total, it will distribute 110,000 cards in Panchthar and 7,000 cards to the officials at Singha Durbar.

Executive Director of the centre, Ram Krishna Subedi said that the discussions with the chiefs of government offices and local representatives about the importance of national ID card and necessary criteria and process of obtaining it along with the publicity campaign for the national identity card had already started.

He further said that field officials are working for personal details collection adding that the centre is planning to start distribution by mid-February.

According to Subedi, it would take more than five years to distribute NID to all people across the country. The government came up with the proposal to have a NID for all its citizens back in 2008 but the cabinet approved the criteria on the cards just last year on December 28, 2017.
