ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has asked NADRA to prepare a roadmap within 48 hours to launch a National Plan for Re-verification of Computerized National Identity Cards across the country on Wednesday.

The re-verification roadmap has been ordered after questions were raised over a Pakistani passport and CNIC found from the drone hit car wreckage site in Balochistan.

It was claimed to be documents held by a Taliban leader Mullah Mansoor.

Chairing a meeting at NADRA Headquarters in Islamabad on Wednesday, the interior Minister said a message has gone to the world that Pakistan’s CNIC can be used by anyone.

He said,”This measure would help us to ensure that in future
no alien will be able to use Pakistani CNIC and passport, besides removal of those aliens currently holding Pakistani CNIC.”

Nisar said NADRA officers and its senior level hierarchy must live up to emoluments and perks provided to them since this money was coming from the taxes of public. “Inefficient and under-performing director generals be removed from service of NADRA,” he ordered.

He directed the NADRA Chairman to take immediate steps to purge the Authority of corrupt elements on a fast track basis and said there should be a zero tolerance for corruption at all levels.

This is against our strategic, security and national interest.
