Chief Minister said that as National Data Base Registration Authority is the custodian of citizens’ record, therefore the task of issuance of succession has been assigned to them. He said that earlier, this process involved three to six months and sometimes even five years.  

After the death of any family member, legal heirs used to be badly disturbed in courts for years for obtaining the succession certificate. Now the applicants may visit the succession unit at Nadra and will provide their National Identity Card Number and deceased person’s death certificate along with an application on affidavit.  

The applicant will provide the details of legal heirs and information about the deceased’s moveable and immovable property. Then, a system-generated acknowledgment will be printed that is duly signed by the applicant, endorsing the information.  

All legal heirs, mentioned by the applicant will visit any NADRA Registration Center for biometric verification and give consent to the successful applicant. Then the NADRA will publish the notice in three leading newspapers of Urdu, English, and Sindhi languages for ascertaining if there are any objections to the particulars. If no objection is received after this publication within 14 days, the succession certificate will be printed and issued to the applicant.
