Owing to the security situation prevailing in the country, the demand for national Identification cards has increased.

According to the commissioner general of the department of registration of persons, Viyani Gunathilake, nearly 2000 to 2500 applications are been received per day for one day service under the existing conditions.

He noted that prior to the Easter Sunday attacks, the applications received stood at 1000 to 1500.

The individuals who have been applying for one day service in such a manner, are those who have been producing the passport or drivers license.

However, the commissioner general of the registration of persons department, Viyani Gunathilake added that with security divisions informing that individuals need to provide the NIC to verify their identity, they are compelled to obtain the NIC immediately.

The commissioner general also noted that a special programme has been deployed in the department to accelerate the one day service.
