Is UMID the “National ID”?
  • No. It’s a mere result of inter-agency efforts to give convenience in government transactions and to save cost of service delivery.

“While possession of the UMID card and/or ownership of a Common Reference Number can facilitate transactions with government, under no condition shall the absence of the card or the CRN be a ground for denying any government service to an individual.”
