Introduction to NADRA Pakistan

The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has its roots in the National Database Organization (NDO), established in 1998 by Pakistan’s Ministry of Interior. In March 2000, NDO merged with the Directorate General of Registration (DGR) to form the independent NADRA. This new entity aimed to champion good governance through innovative solutions. NADRA has garnered international recognition for its impactful programs in identification, e-governance, and secure document issuance. These initiatives tackle identity theft, safeguard client interests, and enhance public service delivery.

Since its inception in 2000, NADRA has spearheaded the civil registration of Pakistani citizens. In a remarkably short timeframe, the dedicated NADRA team has built a state-of-the-art centralized data repository, robust network infrastructure, and interactive data acquisition systems. This facilitates the issuance of tamper-proof National Identity Cards (NICs). This sophisticated computerized system significantly bolsters security against identity theft, reflecting NADRA’s unwavering commitment to both security and innovation.

Who is The Chairman NADRA Pakistan?

Lieutenant General Munir Afsar attained the esteemed rank of three-star general in October 2022, marking a significant milestone in his distinguished career. Renowned for his extensive tenure in the Pakistan Army, General Afsar has made significant contributions in IT-related technical development and administration, alongside his dedicated service with Pakistan’s Mission to the United Nations (UN).

His remarkable achievements have been recognized with the Hilal-e-Imtiaz (Military), an honor that reflects his exceptional contributions.

In addition to his military career, Lieutenant General Afsar is an accomplished scholar, pursuing an MPhil in National Security Management and Public Policy. He demonstrated his expertise in public policy during the 2010 floods by authoring a research paper in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) department, focusing on the public policy response.

As the recently appointed Chairman of NADRA, General Afsar further enhanced his academic credentials with an MS in GIS and Remote Sensing. His innovative research on rapid geospatial data creation through photometry earned him a presidential award. Additionally, he holds an MS in National Resource Strategy from NDU Washington, with specializations in supply chain management and the C&IT industry.

Currently, Lieutenant General Afsar is pursuing a PhD in remote sensing at NUST Islamabad, focusing on the integration of artificial intelligence with remote sensing for plant disease identification.

Beyond academia, General Afsar’s accomplishments extend to his practical experience. His role as a Military GIS Officer at the UN showcased his proficiency in IT-related domains. During the 2010 floods in Pakistan, he played a crucial role in developing a GIS application for disaster recovery.

As Director General of the Command, Control, Communication, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) Directorate, General Afsar oversaw comprehensive IT management. Promoted to Lieutenant General, he continued his exemplary service as Inspector General of Communication and IT, and subsequently, as Commander of the Pakistan Army Cyber Command.

Secure Identification and E-governance by NADRA

NADRA has garnered international recognition for its innovative solutions in citizen identification, e-governance, and secure document issuance. These solutions address critical challenges by:

  • Combating Identity Theft: NADRA’s robust systems significantly reduce the risk of identity theft, protecting citizens and ensuring the integrity of data.
  • Prioritizing Client Security: Client interests are paramount, and NADRA’s secure processes safeguard personal information and prevent unauthorized access.
  • Enhancing Public Service Delivery: Through efficient online systems and streamlined procedures, NADRA delivers essential services to the public with greater speed and accessibility.

These achievements stem from NADRA’s unwavering commitment to research and development. The organization has established itself as a leader in software integration, data warehousing, and network infrastructure. This robust technological foundation underpins its effective solutions and fosters continuous improvement in its services.

What is FRC NADRA, How Can You get FRC?

FRC is a Family Registration Certificate (FRC) and issued to applicants by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA). This certificate details the family composition of the applicant, whether by birth or marriage. It is important to note that individuals not registered with NADRA, and those without a 13-digit identification number, will not have their data reflected in the FRC.
