ISLAMABAD – National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has revoked the policy which requires women to change their names after marriage.

NADRA Chairman Tariq Malik speaking at the Annual Rural Women’s Conference in the country’s federal capital announced that the autonomous authority has powered women to decide whether to change their surname after marriage or not.

The stern policy requiring women's surnames to be changed by their husbands' names after the marriage has been revoked while a special department of female employees has been set up by NADRA which will frame a separate policy for the registration of women.
