JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil) Task Force of the Ministry of Home Affairs is working with the National Police's Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) Team in recording more accurate data on Cianjur earthquake victims.
Head of the Dukcapil Task Force Team, Indersan, said his task force assisted the National Police's DVI Team to record earthquake victims so that they were more valid. This was done because the data continued to grow and change.
"The data continues to increase to 321 victims who died because there were bodies that were immediately buried by the family. So, to obtain more valid data on the death toll, we placed two Dukcapil Task Force personnel in the hospital to accompany the DVI Team," said Indersan as reported by pmjnews.com, Thursday, December 1, 2022.

Indersan explained that the Dukcapil Task Force continues to work on preparing death certificates for victims.
If the victim has been forensically identified by the DVI Polri Team and the hospital has issued a death certificate, then a death certificate can be issued.
"So we don't confuse the death data in the field with what we have issued death certificates for," added Indersan.

As of Sunday, November 27 at 19.30 WIB, the Dukcapil Task Force Team had issued 262 population documents, consisting of 21 death certificates, 136 family cards, and 105 electronic ID cards.
Meanwhile, the Director General of Dukcapil of the Ministry of Home Affairs Zudan Arif Fakrulloh has asked his staff to continue to be proactive in providing population document replacement services for residents affected by the Cianjur earthquake.
"Please be proactive, especially at the Dukcapil Office of West Java Province and Disdukcapil of Cianjur Regency to coordinate with the Central Dukcapil Task Force Team. There needs to be a service for issuing death certificates without being asked by residents," said Zudan.
