NADRA Introduces New Policy for Obtaining a CNIC

The National Database Regulation Authority (NADRA) has introduced a new policy for issuance of Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs) and other documents.

Under the new policy, a birth certificate won’t be required to get a new CNIC and B-Form. All you need to provide are copies of a matriculation certificate, a domicile, a passport, and your parents’ CNICs.

Furthermore, the condition of a marriage certificate for obtaining the wife’s CNIC has been removed. The husband’s CNIC copy, along with a Rs. 20 affidavit is all you need.

Likewise, lodging an FIR is no longer mandatory if you lose your CNIC. People can obtain a new CNIC by submitting an undertaking on a stamp paper regarding the loss/theft of the card.

The government has also done away with the requirement of a newspaper advertisement in case of a name change.

Moreover, UC chairman and councilors won’t have the authority to attest documents for CNIC applications.
