A program called “Under 12” was organised by DHRRA Malaysia and National Registration Department (NRD) at SJKT Ladang Cairo, Mantin, Negeri Sembilan on 20 April 2016.
A total of 45 students who attended this program were exposed to issues pertaining the importance of citizenship and applying for MyKad (identity card) at the age of 12.
Explanations were given by DHRRA Malaysia staff and NRD officers. To gauge the level of understanding among the students, quizzes were held with prizes for the participants.
DHRRA Malaysia hopes the younger generation in the Indian community would be well informed about legal documentation issues, so they would know the importance and necessity of applying for the documents at the right time.
