The government has publicized a policy on drafting the registration of R Kandholhudhoo residents transferred to R Dhuvaafaru.
The purpose of the policy is to hand over the 676 households in Dhuvaafaru to the Kandholhudhoo residents, whose homes were destroyed in the 2001 tsunami.
While the Kandholhudhoo residents were moved to Dhuvaafaru some time ago, a new Dhuvaafaru registry and the registry of the new households have not yet been made.
According to the recently publicized policy, the Dhuvaafaru registration, will be based on the disaster management center’s list and the relevant state authority’s temporary registrations.
The policy also states that the spouses or divorced husbands and wives of the Kandholhudhoo residents, who are registered to other islands, need to fulfill certain requirements before being approved for registration in Dhuvaafaru.
It adds that the people in the registry need to sign an agreement after discussions with the island council.
