The Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) is a vital document for every Pakistani citizen.

Issued by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), it serves as official proof of identity and unlocks access to essential government services and welfare programs.

Understanding CNIC Types:

  • CNIC (Standard): This is the basic ID card for adults (18 years and above).
  • Smart CNIC: A more advanced version of the CNIC, offering additional security features and functionalities.
  • B-Form: Issued for children under the age of five as temporary identification.

NADRA has introduced the Smart National Identity Card (SNIC), taking security and convenience to a whole new level. This advanced card features:

  • Enhanced Security: The SNIC boasts sophisticated technological features to combat fraud and ensure the card’s authenticity.
  • Clear Business Rules: Defined rules govern the card’s use, further bolstering its validity and reliability.
