The barcoding has already been implemented in respect of PRC (permanent residence certificate) from today. Other certificates will be included in the system within a day or two.
This decision came after it has been brought to the notice of the administration that some fraudulent documents/certificates have been created by some unscrupulous elements. The new system is expected to help prevent such activities, an official release stated.
