National Identification card

No NID, no pay for public servants

Minister for National Planning and Monitoring, Richard Maru, issued the ultimatum when announcing the clean-up exercise of the PNG Civil and Identity Registry.

Maru said all public servants must make it their business to get an NID card as it could be used as their payroll numbers.

He said the measure will ensure ghost names are removed from the Government payroll.

This follows the announcement of Tumbo Kumung as the acting registrar general of the PNG Civil and Identity Registry.
