In NegOr, PSA resumes a national identification list-up.
Following a delay caused by Typhoon Odette’s devastation in the province in December, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in Negros Oriental resumed citizen registration in the government’s national identity system on Monday.
In an interview with the Philippine News Agency, PSA-Negros Oriental province director Engr. Ariel Fortuito said his office has distributed 16 registration kits to various towns and localities for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) registration.
“We were unable to begin the registration process immediately this year because several towns and cities, particularly in the province’s central and northern regions, were severely damaged by Typhoon Odette,” Fortuito explained.
Many places were left without electricity and internet access during the typhoon’s attack on Dec. 16, 2021, he noted.
This caused a disruption in national ID registration, but Fortuito noted that certain locations have already been partially powered and internet access has been restored.
Siaton, Sta. Catalina, Bayawan City, Tanjay City, and Bais City are among the regions that resumed registration on January 24, albeit the latter is not yet “completely functioning,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the PSA provincial leader indicated that registration in this province’s major city resumed last week.
For this year, the PSA-Negros Oriental was given a goal of 400,000 registrants, according to Fortuito.
Despite missing its goal last year due to Typhoon Odette, it reached 98.70 percent as of Dec. 31, 2021, or 843,127 registrants, with a workload of 11,130 people remaining.
President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed Republic Act 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act, into law in August 2018, with the goal of creating a single national ID for all Filipinos and resident immigrants.
The national ID will be a valid proof of identity that will make public and private transactions, school enrollment, and bank account opening much easier.
It will also improve efficiency, particularly when dealing with government services, as people will only need to provide one form of identification during transactions.
