The Department of Registration of Persons says, a special unit has been established to issue NICs before the Provincial Council Elections, to those who do not have NICs.

The Commissioner General said a recent study has identified the number of people who do not have NICs, to be over 300,000. He further noted that a circular containing instructions in this regard has been issued to Grama Niladhari Officers and Divisional Secretaries.
