In collaboration with MSC and MSCTrustgate, MyKad holders can now read the details of their identification card/IC - MyKad on Channel 800, Astro by inserting their MyKad (chip facing downwards) into the second slot of the Astro Decoder and follow the on-screen instructions.
The Astro decoder will display the following information:
• Name • NRIC No. • Address • Postcode • City • State • Religion • Race
I check my religion on the astro decoder.. bravo.. it comes out correct - Christian (I know there are quite a number of people who gets their religion printed wrongly on their MyKad). Great, don't have to waste $$$ to buy the MyKad Reader :)
Not only we can check the information on our MyKad, we can check our credit cards information too on Astro Decoder.. Mmmm...But too bad I can't read the balance of the credit card, Hahaha...
