During investigations, 39 employees, including officers, have not only been sacked from Nadra but most of them were arrested and facing inquiries. Moreover, during the course of their careers, these officers and employees of Nadra have processed a total of 13.5 million identity cards from 2011 to 2021, some of these are considered to be suspicious.
Nadra Sindh has conducted an audit of 22.14% of cards issued so far. Sources further said that other domestic agencies, including FIA, are investigating the alleged employees of Nadra for issuing identity cards to foreigners.
To cope up with this issue, NADRA has also recently launched PAK-ID mobile app. By using this app, people can apply for their CNIC without visiting the NADRA offices. According to the officials, the mobile app, Pak-ID, helps to capture biometrics and scan documents digitally by using the camera of smartphones.
