Nadra launches a new online verification system to help grub fake CNICs.

National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) on Saturday has launched a new system of verification and renewal of identity cards in a bid to control illegal issuance of Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs).

With the help of this new system, Pakistani citizens can get details and verification of family members while sending SMS from their registered mobile phones to 8009.

According to an official of Nadra, the new system would verify or identify the registration of any irrelevant person in the family tree.

“If any information is incorrect or the name of a stranger or unrelated person is included in the family, write 1 and send the SMS to inform Nadra, or go to any Nadra Registration Centre to unregister that name,” the authority’s chairman Tariq Malik said in a statement on Saturday.

“If the information is correct, write 2 and send the SMS to confirm the information. To avail of the verification and renewal service, it is necessary to register the SMS with Nadra from the same mobile number which was provided at the Nadra Registration Centre while seeking the ID card or “B” form.

“If your mobile number is not registered with Nadra, you can visit any Nadra centre for registration or change of mobile number, and this facility is provided free of cost at all Nadra Registration Centres,” the statement said.
