The NID server of the election commission will be down for 64 hours starting from Thursday for maintenance purposes, according to an EC source. The NID wing informed the officials at various levels through text messages.
The server room will be moved during maintenance. All server and network services will be closed from 26 October at 5pm until 28 October night. Services can be used as usual from 9am on Sunday (29 October).
175 institutions, including mobile operators, financial institutions, and law enforcement agencies, use the NID server to verify citizens’ identities. In September, the NID server was temporarily unavailable due to maintenance.
