It’s a must to carry the original MyKad

THE National Registration Department (NRD) appreciates the views expressed in “Poser over MyKad photocopy” (The Star, June 28).

For readers’ information, it is compulsory for a person to carry his/her MyKad at all times under Regulation 6 of The National Registration Act 1959 (Act 78) and Regulations.

A MyKad copy cannot be regarded as a substitute for the original MyKad.

Regulation 6 states that the person to whom an identity card has been issued shall, thereafter and for so long as he remains a registered or re-registered person under these Regulations, at all times carry on his person the identity card and, subject to the provisions of these Regulations, be responsible for the custody thereof.

Any person who fails to comply with Regulation 6, if found guilty of the offence, shall be liable on conviction to a jail term not exceeding three years or to a minimum fine of RM3,000 and a maximum fine of RM20,000 or both as per Regulation 25 (i)(n) of the same Act.

Public Relations Officer,
