Jaffna GA opens NIC Office in Veala’nai

[TamilNet, Friday, 02 May 2008, 03:39 GMT]
“A resident in Jaffna peninsula may live without food, clothing and shelter for some days but cannot survive even for a day without the National Identity Card,” Jaffna Government Agent, K. Ganesh said, in his speech in the opening ceremony of the special office for the issue of National Identity Card (NIC) at the Veala’nai Divisional Secretariat Thursday.

The government has begun establishing special offices for the issue of NICs in each Divisional Secretariat in Jaffna peninsula.

The GA stressed on the overriding importance of the NIC for the peninsula residents as it is the principal document demanded in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) checking besides its necessity in many other affairs like payments and pensions.

“A person in Jaffna peninsula cannot go out on the street or be in the house without the National Identity Card,” the GA pointed in his speech.
