In order to improve the coverage of current registration, the agency, which recently started a one-center service in health facilities jointly with the city health office, has been increased from five public health facilities to 22 private and public health facilities.
In total, the agency provided 203,418 residents with companionship, relationship verification, residency verification, and residency services in the 2014 fiscal year. Compared to the same period of the fiscal year 2013, it has been pointed out that it has a higher service.
It was planned to give 846,135 manual residence IDs and it was possible to give them to 1,024,062 customers, and it was possible to exceed the plan due to the problem of system interruption and the work done to relieve the number of customers (queue) created when the interrupted service was allowed. Ato Tgabu added that services have been provided to 3.4 million residents of the city and foreigners, he told Bisrat Radio.
