Staff from the Rakhine State Immigration and Population department have issued National Verification Cards to over 2,600 people from Shwe Zar north, west and middle villages over the past two months.
After the attacks of extremists from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on 25 August in the Maungtaw region, a team led by the head of the State Immigration and Manpower department began the process for issuing national verification cards (NVCs), which is one of the programmes being implemented to improve Rakhine State’s development.
The staff from the department divided into groups and checked and recorded eye scans and fingerprints to issue NVCs to over 2,600 people from Shwe Zar north, west and middle villages. More recently, from 12 to 17 October, NVCs for 56 men, 27 women, a total of 83 and NID for 66 men and 34 women, total of 100 were scrutinized and issued.
The NVC and NID (biometric) works will continue, it is learnt.
