Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has launched the NADRA biker service for completing the Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) processes.
According to the details, the applicants whether demand to renew it or do alterations to it, the procedure will be now done at the applicant’s doorstep. The inauguration ceremony was held at the Headquarters of the NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority) in Islamabad.
During the minister’s visit to NADRA’s headquarters, its Chairman Tariq Malik told him about how they are primarily implementing the processes in flood-affected by like Sindh, Balochistan, and South Punjab. Due to the flash floods, NADRA buildings have been damaged, however, they saved and shifted the equipment to a safe place.
Moreover, people in some areas have lost their CNICs due to floods, and need dire help, so they must be provided access to governments’ relief funds.
