Prime Minister Imran Khan has launched a mobile phone application developed by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to facilitate applicants seeking any change or update in their computerised identity cards (CNIC) or want to get ID card for the first time.
The mobile app, Pak-ID, helps in biometrics and scan documents by using the camera of smartphones, according to an official statement issued on Tuesday.
It said premier Imran appreciated NADRA Chairman Tariq Malik’s innovative idea of the mobile app which is a step towards implementing the PM’s vision of inclusive registration and digital Pakistan.
“Pakistan becomes trailblazer in ID Management Industry by launching a mobile app which captures biometrics, fingerprints, facial recognition and scan documents needed for processing of citizens’ ID cards and documents,” said the statement.
Using the digital app on smartphones, all citizens including expatriates will be able to digitally capture fingerprints, photographs and documents.
This is a leap forward putting an end to the conventional methods for processing ID documents, the statement read.
The app Pak Identity can be downloaded from Google Play Store (Android) and Apple Store (iOS).
