Old vs New NIC number?

The Sri Lankan National Identity Card (NIC) is a identification document. The NIC number, a unique identifier, has evolved over time. Originally consisting of 9 numeric digits and a letter, it has now transformed into a 12-digit numeric code.

The old NIC comprised 9 numeric digits and an alphabet, while the new number has 12 digits. For instance, consider the old NIC (e.g., 810509871V). The initial two digits (’81’) decode birth year, followed by three digits (‘050’) indicating birth date and gender. The final letter (‘V’ or ‘X’) signifies voter eligibility. Similarly, the new NIC (e.g., 198105009871) features the first four digits representing the birth year, followed by three digits indicating birth date and gender.
