NIC issuance process expedited for northern PC voters

2013 Jul 24

The Department of Registration of Persons says that the issuance of National Identity Cards for voters of the Northern Provincial Council Elections has been expedited.

Commissioner of the Department R.M.S Sarath Kumara said steps will be taken to issue NICs within one month of applying.

He added however that there has been a delay in applying for NICs.


He said that the main reason for this is the unavailability of birth certificates and other documents for those in the north.

However, he requested the public to apply for the NIC with any documents in their possession.


Several mobile services have also been set up to expedite the process.
