Re: Request to the YB Home Minister to help us from becoming undocumented illegal foreigners.

Dear YB Datuk Seri,

MyPR, was only introduced in June 2006 but government announced, ordering us to change our ICs to My Card in 2005. I took one day leave in 2005 and went to NRD or National Registration Department. We were told that because of the large numbers of citizens changing to My Card, they had suspended the service for PR holders.

In 2006 because of new announcement to change to MyPR, I took another day leave and went there. I had read NRD’s web site, newspaper announcements by NRD, complaint letters in Malaysiakini about unfair rule for PR holders need to show/endorsement at Putra Jaya, Deputy Home Minister’s reply explaining that this condition was meant for Indonesian PR holders only and never meant for other citizens with Malaysia PR. But NRD insists to proceed only if we have a valid passport.

So I went to NRD again, taking another day’s leave, in 2007. They impose new red tapes or new rules again, asking to make photocopies of all the documents our selves. They never announce or told us earlier to bring the photocopies and when I asked my friends who had done MyPR cards, non of them need to submit photocopies but NRD had done by themselves.

Today, many months after completing the requirements, I went to NRD and to my horror, our MyPR Cards are not ready yet.

Although the Malaysian National Registration Department got the best delivery award amongst all the Government Agencies, we found out a lot of delaying tactics and ever increasing RED TAPE RULES for us in this department. Clearly NRD has the most inefficient delivery system for us but curiously chosen and rewarded as the best for the present administration. For us they take few years just to issue or to change our ICs. May be deliberate delaying tactics for us only because I had read in the Newspapers that they just take one hour to replace an IC, My Card during election times.
 
What should we do if NRD could not issue the new MyPR in time and if our old PR card automatically became invalid as identity cards? Please don’t make us to become the undocumented or illegal foreigners in Malaysia.
 
We hereby humbly request to the YB Home Minister to help us from becoming undocumented illegal foreigners.
 
Thanking You
Yours Humbly
 
Dr. Zafar Shah
