Smart Card ID will cost same as ID Book
Home Affairs say the new Smart Card ID will cost South Africans the same as an ID book.
The Department of Home Affairs on Thursday said the new smart card ID will cost South Africans the same amount as an ID book.
The pilot project will kickoff ahead of the planned implementation for 2013.
Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and other heads of the department have already received their smart card IDs.
The department said it will minimise the cost of producing smart cards by using the government printing works.
The rollout is expected in about eighteen months.
