ID plan for one-year-olds

If the Interior Ministry has its way, children from age one will have to apply for and carry identification cards.

Failure to apply for the card carries a Bt500 fine while not producing the card to officials is punishable by a Bt200 fine.

The Interior Ministry plans to submit draft legislation for Cabinet approval tomorrow. The Council of State has approved the bill.

According to the law, applications for those under 15 years can be submitted by parents and carried by them on their children's behalf.

Today, only those older than 15 need to have identification cards.

Critics attacked the move as "irrelevant and impractical". Children and parents are not together all the time, they said.

Children under 15 are already considered the responsibility of parents and schools.
