Aasandha Company said effective from Sunday their services will be available even on expired identity cards.
In a statement announcing the decision, Aasandha said although ID cards are expired they will be valid for their services as long as the card belongs to the one seeking their service. Therefore, from Sunday onwards all Maldivian nationals can use their ID cards for Aasandha service, regardless of its expiry date, the company said.
Amending the regulations to allow Aasandha service to those with expired ID cards had been one of the pledges of President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s first 100-day plan.
“Husnuvaa Aasandha Scheme” was initiated during former President Abdulla Yameen’s presidency in 2014.
