Today there is no one day service to receive the National Identity Card

The Department for Registration of Persons announced that the issuing of the National Identity Card (NIC) under one-day service will not be available to day (12).

The department's Commissioner General, Viyani Gunatilleke said it is owing to the government's decision to reimpose police curfew at 2.00 pm after lifting it in the morning to day.

He said people would face difficulties with transport once the curfew comes into force in the afternoon.

Therefore, the people who had reserved time for tomorrow would be able to visit the department to obtain their services on any other working weekday
