Jambi mayor Sy Fasha confirmed on Thursday that the city administration would receive 30,000 electronic resident identity (e-ID) forms from the Home Affairs Ministry.

“Based on existing requirements, the e-IDs must be printed and completely distributed to the people within two weeks,” he said.

The mayor further explained that his administration had received confirmation on the number of e-ID forms allocated for the city, following his meeting with the Home Affairs Ministry’s Population and Civil Registration Agency (Dukcapil) officials in Jakarta recently.

“We previously got information there were e-ID forms available in limited quantities and ready to be distributed in areas across the country. We then took this opportunity,” said Fasha.

He said completing the distribution of the e-IDs was a priority program. The administration would immediately print the forms for residents whose data was considered valid.

“As soon as they arrive in Jambi, we will print them, in line with data that has been verified by the ministry,” said Fasha.

In the past week, the Jambi administration has distributed 20,000 e-IDs to the city’s residents via neighborhood unit (RT) heads.

“The remainder is in the process of distribution. We are striving to distribute them on time so we can continue to get additional allocations of e-ID forms [from the central government],” said Fasha. (ebf)
