“It is hoped that all levels of disdukcapil will increase the ball pick-up service to complete the recording of beginners and people who do not have KTPs. The Dukcapil of the Ministry of Home Affairs has implemented a Digital Population Identity innovation called Digital ID,” continued the Rector.
Furthermore, the Rector emphasized that the Digital ID will make it easier for people to access public services and requests for population document services can be done online. Hopefully this activity can be carried out optimally for 3 days with 15 IKD service points including UPI Kamda and can accommodate as many participants as possible consisting of lecturers, employees and students.

Teguh Setyabudi explained that the role of Dukcapil will become increasingly strategic and important in the future. Dukcapil is a source of services for both government and private services. “Regarding the Dukcapil Goes to Campus activity at UPI, this is our effort to introduce and implement government policies related to citizenship document services through the creation and activation of the Digital Identity Card (IKD).”
