On Tuesday, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) introduced an application that will enable Pakistanis to use their smartphones for biometric verification. The development has come forward after the government’s continuous efforts to advance its systems with the help of technology.
This project, indeed, falls under the Prime Ministers’ vision of digital Pakistan.

Tariq Malik, the chairman of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), said that the country is moving towards digital identity lifecycle by introducing the app. “It is a game-changer as it helps create trust in a variety of transactions between people, identity providers, and public and private sector,” he said.
The Pak-ID mobile application was launched by the premier himself to facilitate applicants of National ID cards using the Pak-ID portal, a great convenience to Overseas Pakistanis.
In a tweet, Imran Khan’s official Twitter account said: “Inaugurated PAK-ID Mobile App by #NADRA. A revolutionary step in providing convenience, especially to Overseas Pakistanis. Applicants of http://id.nadra.gov.pk can now capture fingerprints, photographs, and documents using mobile phones. Great initiative by Tariq Malik & NADRA team.”

The mobile app will help Pakistanis digitally capture fingerprints from anywhere around the world and scan documents and photographs using smartphones cameras. The Nadra chairman said, “The innovation will revolutionize the National ID Eco-System in Pakistan by providing public convenience.”
This is indeed a leap forward to putting a halt to the conservative methods of using physical paper for processing ID documents in Nadra.
Women Can Now Find If Their Husbands have any Secret Marriages with NADRA’s Latest Policy. Read the full story here:
NADRA’s new policy can help identify if a man is already committed to another woman prior to their current relationship in the latest developments. In Pakistan, by law and as religious guidance, a man can marry 4 women at a time. While the law permits to do so, it strictly suggests that other women must acknowledge it. Men must receive permission from previous wive or wives to remarry.
