46,000 public service job applicants used fake identities, monitor finds

THE myIdentity system developed by the National Registration Department (NRD) in 2012 has helped the Public Service Commission (PSC) verify the authenticity of information of individuals applying for positions in the public service, the department said.

In a statement today, NRD said the integration of the system lets PSC verify applicants’ citizenship statuses, which is a mandatory requirement as public sector positions are reserved for Malaysians.
