IDs operation planned

The head of the City Population Office, Sudarsono, announced that his office will soon launch a large-scale operation against citizens holding double citizenship cards in the Greater Jakarta.

Sudarsono was quoted by the Antara news agency as saying that more than 500,000 people holding Jakarta ID cards live in the greater Jakarta area, which also covers Tangerang, Bogor and Bekasi.

Those residents mostly decline to terminate their Jakarta ID cards even though they have new cards given by the new neighborhood chief in their new residence.

He reminded residents to avoid having double cards so as not to obstruct the computerization system of citizenship cards. (yns)
