Digital Pakistan is the aim of incumbent government. Current premier of Pakistan is seriously focusing on the use of technology and making departments and authorities digitally inclusive. Proof of that can be seen in different initiatives of NADRA to record the data of foreigners and register them in the system if they plan to stay after a particular period. The newly launched system to verify CNICs also uses high-end technology to identify fake identity cardholders and it is called the Qaumi Tasdeeq-o-Tajdeed Campaign. A system is generated by NADRA which, through artificial intelligence, allows the authority to check any discrepancies and verify the existing records.
It is important for all the residents to know about their family trees and if the registered record in the database of NADRA is accurate or not. The authority has launched an easy process for verification of CNIC to confirm the record. In order to check your family tree with NADRA, you will need your CNIC number and the phone number that is registered with your CNIC. Once you have these follow the following steps:
- Using your registered phone number, send your CNIC number and its date of issuance to 8009. Your CNIC number should not include any special characters or dashes (<13 digits CNIC number> DD-MM-YYYY).
- You will get the names of people that are registered in your family tree. You should verify these and look for any additional member who doesn’t belong to you.
- If you find anyone registered wrongfully in your family tree, reply with ‘1’ and a representative of NADRA will call you shortly to verify. If everything seems to be in order, reply with ‘2’.
Note: It is important for you to know that a representative of NADRA will only call you from the number 051-2778009. If you receive a call from any other number, don’t share your personal details with them.
This initiative is a clear depiction that Pakistan is ready for Digital Revolution. Since 2018, The Government of Pakistan has taken several initiatives. ‘Go Digital’ is the need of hour and Pakistan has not left any unturned to make it possible. Well Done.
