  • This numerical system will not apply to  persons in areas where the curfew is relaxed
  • No one will be permitted to enter or leave towns or villages that have been declared as isolated areas

The government yesterday announced the National Identity Card (NIC) numerical system, which had been introduced for the public to be adhered whilst stepping out of the house for essential purpose, will only be applicable for the areas where the curfew is in force.   

 The Presidential Media Division issuing a statement last night stated the new numerical system will not apply to  persons in areas where the curfew is relaxed. However, any individual residing in an area where curfew is in force will be able to leave the house based on the numerical system.  


Also persons will not be permitted to enter or leave towns or villages that have been declared as isolated areas and this regulation will be implemented  strictly, the PMD said. 

 
According to the introduced numerical system the citizens could step out of their houses on a particular day of the week as per the last digit of their NIC number.   


Therefore, the citizens who could leave their homes during the week according to the last digit of their NIC number are as follows: 

 
Monday : Individual with No. 1 or 2 as the last digit of their NICs   
Tuesday : Individual with No. 3 or 4 as the last digit of their NICs   
Wednesday : Individual with No. 5 or 6 as the last digit of their NICs   
Thursday : Individual with No. 7 or 8 as the last digit of their NICs   
Friday : Individual with No. 9 or 0 as the last digit of their NICs
