FARAH (Pajhwok): The Statistics and Information Technology Department of northern Faryab province on Saturday started issuing electronic ID cards to people.

Yasin Rasekh, the department head, launched the e-ID card distribution process at a ceremony here, saying all residents of Farah province could apply and obtain electronic ID cards.

Officials said the ID card distribution center could register about 250 people a day for issuance of ID cards.

Rasekh said a second electronic ID cards issuance center would also be established in the province soon. He said the use of electronic ID cards would help prevent forgery.

Fazl Ahmad Khan, a retired government official, welcomed the distribution of electronic ID cards in the province.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News that he had gone to Kabulinfo-icon some time ago to complete his retirement process but faced with many problems due to lack of an electronic ID card.

Distribution of electronic ID cards was started in Kabul in May 2019 and the cards are currently being issued in a number of provinces.
