ISLAMABAD, Aug 15 (APP): Minister for Interior Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan on Monday informed the National Assembly that a parliamentary committee having representation of all political parties was being set up to address people’s problems regarding Computerized National
Identity Cards (CNICs).
Responding to points of order raised by Maulana Jamal ud Din and S A Iqbal Qadari, the minister said there were scores of problems which were pointed out by the members and the parliamentary committee would address all such issues being confronted by the people. The members would
not need to visit the offices of National Database Registration Authority (NADRA).
Nisar said a drive had been launched against fake CNICs which were issued to foreigners during last 12 years. There might be chances that CNICs of some genuine Pakistanis were blocked, but these issues were being resolved, he added.
The minister said three mega centres of NADRA were being set up in Karachi, which would be opened by this year or next year.
Significant progress had been made in that regard, he added.
He said four NADRA vans would be deployed in Korangi areas of Karachi.
Nisar said there were total 92 passport offices across the
country. Many districts had no passport offices, he added.
He said it was categorically decided that a passport office would be set up in all the districts. Process in that regard was underway and these offices would be opened soon, he added.
