The Department of Registration of Persons has said that a number of applications submitted for the provision of National Identity Cards for students sitting for the Ordinary Level examination this year are incomplete.

Commissioner of Registration of Persons R.M.S. Sarath Kumara said that they will have to send incomplete applications back to applicants.

He said that due to this, a longer time period will be needed to provide them with their IDs.

He said that even though they are yet to receive more that 200,000 applications for IDs, they have not yet received them.

He charged that school principals have failed to send in these applications.

He added that in February, all school principals were informed to send in applications of students who will complete 16 years of age by Oct. 31.

He said that due to the irresponsibility of school principals in failing to send in these applications in accordance with procedure, it will be the students who face the repercussions.
