Nadra will begin normal operations starting next week | Instant News

ISLAMABAD – NADRA announced Thursday to begin its normal operations starting next week mainly to facilitate the applicants of the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program.

A letter written by the Director General (Operations) of Tahir Maqsood Khan’s authority to all regional headquarters (RHO) said that NADRA operations will begin from 4 May onwards.

Nadra took the decision to resume operations, which had been suspended since March 19 as a precautionary measure to deal with the spread of the corona virus, by order of the Ministry of the Interior.

The NADRA Headquarters has also sent temporary guidelines to all RHOs for adoption at the beginning of the operation to prevent the spread of the corona virus in all registration centers that saw a large influx of residents.

The ministry informed that the decision was made based on discussions held at the April 28 meeting at the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) to resolve the biometric verification problems of certain people’s fingerprints with the impression of a faded or distorted thumb.

Many Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Ehsaas Program applicants have protested over the past few days because they cannot get their thumbs verified because of the closure of Nadra offices throughout the country.

Verification of thumb impressions is a prerequisite for obtaining cash assistance offered by the federal government to low income classes affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Ehsaas Program workers have refused requests for cash assistance from applicants whose thumb impressions cannot be verified through their own system and they have been asked to contact Nadra for this purpose.


Last week, the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant for Poverty Alleviation Dr Sania Nishtar had asked the registration authority to open his office to facilitate the government in disbursing aid money. However, Nadra believes that the federal government must direct it in the event of a pandemic outbreak in the country.

Regarding this matter, Nishtar brought the matter to the Cabinet and finally decided that the NCOC must decide on the matter.
