Extended deadline for issuing National Identity Cards to individuals over 40

April 22, Colombo (LNW): The Department for Registration of Persons has announced an extension of the deadline for issuing National Identity Cards (NICs) to individuals aged 40 and above who currently do not possess one.

The new deadline has been set for June 30th, offering a further opportunity for eligible individuals to obtain their NICs.

This initiative aims to facilitate individuals who have faced challenges in acquiring a national identity card, primarily due to the absence of a birth certificate, Commissioner General of the Department for Registration of Persons Pradeep Saputhanthri emphasised.

Initially effective until March 31st, the programme’s extension comes in response to requests from Divisional Secretaries, highlighting the importance of ensuring broader access to essential identification documents for all citizens.

The Department for Registration of Persons says it remains committed to streamlining the process of obtaining NICs, recognising the significance of these documents for various administrative and civic purposes.
