Get your birth certificate now, citizens advised

The Registrar General’s Department has launched a programme to issue birth certificates without charge to 100,000 citizens who have no birth certificates, Kurunegala senior Divisional Secretary W.E. Jayathilake said yesterday.

Registrar General ChaturaVithana has already informed all Divisional Secretaries countrywide in a special circular about this programme. Hence, all grama niladharies of the Kurunegala district have to report details of persons who do not have birth certificates to the respective Divisional Secretaries, he said.

People cannot vote in the forthcoming elections without NIC s and they cannot get an NIC without a birth certificate. The birth certificate is an essential document and those who have no birth certificates should use this opportunity to get it, he said.
