The National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has launched a ‘Qaumi Tasdeeq-o-Tajdeed Campaign’ (QTTC), a new system for verification of the family members.
National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) launched a new system of verification and renewal of national identity cards to control illegal and fake issuance of Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs).
This development has come after the echo of nearly four lakh ‘fake CNICs’ across the country, including the Senate and the National Assembly.
According to an official of Nadra, the new system would verify or identify registration of any unrelated person in the family tree.
“He said an operation has also been launched against foreigners living in Pakistan illegally. New technology will be used to reach a fake identity card through artificial intelligence to stop the wrong registration of any such CNIC with Nadra,” he added.
Through this new system, Pakistani citizens can get details and verification of family members while sending SMS from their registered mobile phones to 8009.
“The Nadra official added that citizens can get required details while sending CNIC number and date of issuance. In reply, all details of the family tree will be provided while there is also an option to make corrections in details. Citizens can register their mobile numbers from any Nadra center,” he concluded.
Step by step procedure for verification of CNIC with NADRA
According to the Nadra spokesman, under the QTTC, the family members can be verified from the registered mobile number in Nadra through a SMS “<13 digit CNIC No> Space ” at “8009”.
In response, you will receive details of your family members. If any information is incorrect or the name of an intruder or unrelated person is included in the family members, write “1” in reply to inform the Nadra. A representative of the Nadra will contact you in this regard from help line 051-2778009. If all the information is found correct, write “2” in reply, to confirm the correct information to the Nadra.
In order to avail the verification and renewal service, it is necessary to register a SMS with Nadra from the same mobile number which was provided at the Nadra registration centre while processing the ID card or “B” form. If your mobile number is not registered with the Nadra, you can visit any Nadra centre for the registration or change of mobile number. This facility is provided free of cost at all the Nadra registration centres.
