Government is preparing to distribute Rastriya Parichaya Patras at the local level
The government is preparing to distribute Rastriya Parichaya Patras, or national identification cards, at the local level.
The Nepali government has prepared for the distribution of identification cards at the local level in an effort to issue national identity cards to all people within a year.
Yet even the printed cards could not be delivered owing to a lack of staff. 1 crore 10 lakh 66 biometric information have been recorded as of Sunday, February 12, 2023, and 890,000 cards had been printed.
However, due to a labour shortage, only 127,000 cards were distributed. According to director Krishna Poudel, distribution will begin as a campaign following an increase in card printing.
Rastriya Parichaya Patra
Cards have already been made and distributed to ten districts, with the Kanchanpur district serving as the starting point. The agency intends to provide identity cards at the municipal as well as district levels.
Director Paudel claims that a staffing shortage has prevented the distribution of printed cards. The interested party is required to show up and give biometric information at the time of card delivery.
Due to congestion during registration, the available personnel is insufficient to distribute. As a result, the agency is enlisting local assistance to speed up the distribution process.
The quantity of information being registered has expanded since the identity card number is now required for obtaining and renewing passports.
A 10-digit national identity card number will be given when the information is registered. The identity card’s future usage, however, has not yet been decided.
Connecting Integrated Platform with Other Services: – Rastriya Parichaya Patra
After registering the biometric information of 11 million residents, the government is getting ready to connect the national identity card with other services.
Along with other organizations, a platform has been developed to link information from the social security fund, incident reporting, immigration, and transportation.
The department’s spokeswoman is pleading with the government to provide funding for the platform’s construction.
This technology will make it simple to identify those who have received social security benefits based on false documentation and to validate documents at the airport.
