Goodbye to the tiresome documentation
A major chunk of the Digital Pakistan initiative is to provide ease to people by saving their time.

Everything will be tackled digitally and the whole process of applying for a NIC would become a lot easier. The app can be download from Google Play and App Store
NADRA Chairman Tariq Malik said in a statement that the modern mobile app will be the beginning of a new era and it would bring revolution in different economic sectors. It would facilitate businesses by allowing them to rapidly onboard users and provide modern password-less authentication. He further added that the digital dividends of such technology innovation would yield positive results in financial inclusion, ease of doing business, and e-governance initiatives by offering remote identification.
