The Ministry of Social Affairs also performs matching with the Population Identification Number (NIK) registered with the Directorate General of Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil) of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
“We do continue to improve, we rely heavily on the regional (government),” said Risma.
