National Statistics and Information Administration (NSIA) of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said that they will get enough funds to begin census across Afghanistan.
The administration plans to measure the areas of districts, police districts, highways, borders, forests, mines, and the amount of agricultural crops, human resources, and gross domestic products.
Speaking about the challenges and achievements of NSIA to journalists in Kabul, officials of the administration said that lack of budget, lack of technical amenities, and interference of other government administrations are the biggest challenges they have to deal with.
Head of the administration Faqir Muhammad Ziyar said that they have collected 423 million Afghani during the past three months from 759,000 electronic IDs they have issued in 20 provinces of Afghanistan.
Ziyar added that they have still had nearly 8 million already printed eIDs and that they issue 17,000 of the IDs on daily basis.
It is worth mentioning that, IEA is issuing the IDs of the previous Afghan government but said that they will bring changes once the already printed IDs are issued.
As per information, the administration will only replace the ministry of Interior Affairs with NSIA and will add expiry dates.
