Wonder how many more cases are out there.  With the effort made during the MyDaftar program, managed to help them.  But if no such effort, the number of approved cases will be much lower.


THE applications of 2,500 Indians to become Malaysian citizens were accepted by the Government under the MyDaftar campaign recently,Makkal Osai reported.

The Cabinet’s special committee for Indian affairs coordinator Datuk N. Sivasubramaniam said this was the first time a large number of Indians were given citizenships.

The National Registration Department would process the applications after receiving security clearance from the police department, he said, adding that 2,000 other Indians had succeeded in their applications for the MyKad.

“The major problem faced by NRD is the failure of applicants to give their correct address. There were cases where letters sent to the applicants were returned. Because of this, their applications had to be put on hold,” he was quoted as saying.
