Without any discrimination of citizenship or non-citizenship of Myanmar, Unique ID Numbers will be issued to all people living in Myanmar according to a coordination meeting on holding of CAS Report held at the Office of the ministry of immigration and manpower in Nay Pyi Taw on August 10.
“We are now implementing the Credential Assembly Service Report (CAS Report). Just like India and Japan, which have CAS Report, we will issue unique ID numbers without any discrimination on citizenship or non-citizenship. Later, we will carry out population resolution or registration the numbers of people residing in the country. And then, we will do things that will support e-government or digital government. We have been observing this since 2016. We will add momentum to the implementations,” said Minister Thein Swe.
He continued in saying that using high technology just like international societies, the unique ID numbers will issue based on individual data, finger prints, eyes and facial features. Later, smart cards will be issued.
