Meanwhile, chairman NADRA also talked about the Nadra Centralised Complaint Management System (NCCMS) that delivers a unified view of complaints regarding all Nadra services, products, and projects.

When a complaint is not resolved in due time, there is also a super escalation feature that brings up the complaint directly to the Nadra chairman,” he described.

Moreover, Dr. Abdullah Riar, Secretary Office of International Chapters of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf lauded the government’s efforts intended to facilitate foreign Pakistanis and stated that from the Roshan digital account millions of rupees can be earned in remittances on a daily basis.
