Internally Displaced People in Pakistan

Updates about IDPs from FATA, Swat, Dir and Buner

NADRA’s Response…

Posted by Administrator on May 17, 2009

In the interest of fairness, I am re-posting NADRA Deputy Chairman, Mr. Tariq Malik’s response to this website’s post on the Rs. 50/ charge being levied on IDPs that are trying to re-establish their particulars in light of their displacement.

“Thanks for pointing out an important issue on your blog. Let me clarify that there is no fee for IDP registration. The people in IDP camps are eligible to get free of cost ID cards. Strict disciplinary action will be taken against NADRA employee who demands for any fee from IDPs. NADRA has deputed a lot of Mobile Registration Vans (MRVs) which are parked and/or moving in the effected registering and delivering ID cards free of cost. The snapshot is misleading as it shows a reciept of NADRAs electronic application called eSahulat which is available in various parts of Pakistan for citizens to verify a citizens credentials as to whether the person is legal citizen of Pakistan or not (to combat Identity fraud). It appears that the friends and relatives of IDP living in other parts of Pakistan are using these machines (not located in IDP camps) helping to verify ID cards of IDPs so that they can get speedy services. IDPs must contact MRVs for free services. We are going to run a public awareness campaign on this issue.”

    Request to NADRA,
    I had visited to Shamansoor IDP’s Camp there I have seen one mobile wan from NADRA. I have seen huge rows of male/female waiting for his turn. Which was radiculus for the IDP’s? So using this forum I am requesting to the high authority of NADRA to send at least on Extra mobile wan to make the registration steam line and make it fast.
