Profit-machine NADRA…even with IDPs
Posted by Administrator on May 14, 2009
Note one of the pictures in the gallery below, from our visit to Hathian on May 14.
NADRA is charging Rs.50 for folks who lost/misplaced or had thier cards destroyed in the process of fleeing thier homes. The provincial government, district government, civil society and individual citizens are doing all they can to feed, house and clothe these IDPs.
The federal government charges them Rs.50 for thier Identification Cards. Call your MNA, Senator, Uncle, or Auntie, call anybody and everybody you can, and tell them how outrageous this is. NADRA should stick to making money on contracts from foreign governments (as it does when it mass produces machine readable passports for other countries). This software house financed by the taxpayer should not be charging IDPs for a document that is a human and constititional right in Pakistan.
