PUTRAJAYA: The public is urged not to rush to National Registration Department (NRD) branches to change their MyKads to prevent congestion.
NRD director-general Datuk Jariah Mohd Said said changing to the new MyKad was not compulsory and there was no time limit set.
"The Putrajaya and Shah Alam NRD branches received 2,984 and 1,579 applications respectively to change to the new MKad from Tuesday until yesterday.
Congestion at the counters can affect efforts to process applicatiosn to within a day," she said in a statement today.
On Friday, NRD announced the introduction of a new MyKad with cutting-edge security features which could be applied for at the two branches from Tuesday, and, subsequently, nationwide in stages from next week.
Newspapers yesterday reported the enthusiasm of the public to change their identity cards. Many turned up long before the offices were due to open. -- BERNAMA
