In a progressive move aimed at enhancing citizen convenience, residents of Lahore now have the opportunity to access a range of National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) services without leaving the comfort of their homes. This convenience is made possible through the launch of the ‘Biker Service’ in the provincial capital.
A Solution to Time-Consuming Processes
Gone are the days of tiresome and time-consuming visits to NADRA offices for tasks like applying for or renewing your Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC). The ‘Biker Service’ is a welcome innovation designed to simplify these processes, saving residents time and effort.
How It Works
Now, residents of Lahore can forego the need to visit NADRA offices altogether. Instead, they can choose to have their thumb impressions collected, their photos updated, and their CNICs and other essential documents delivered directly to their doorstep. This hassle-free approach is facilitated through a representative of the authority, bringing NADRA services closer to the people.
Convenience with a Cost
It’s important to note that the doorstep service, while highly convenient, does come at an additional cost. To take advantage of this service, residents can reach out to NADRA through their helpline at 051-111 786 100. Alternatively, customers of Mobilink, Ufone, Telenor, and Zong can dial 1777 to request the service. This additional cost is a small price to pay for the time and effort saved by avoiding in-person visits to NADRA offices.
The Mobile Option
In addition to the ‘Biker Service,’ NADRA has introduced a more modern way of accessing their services. Through the Pak ID app, citizens can apply for a range of identification documents, including ID cards and family registration certificates, all from the comfort of their mobile phones. This mobile application offers an added level of convenience for those who prefer digital interactions.
Expanding the Service
It’s worth mentioning that NADRA had previously announced its plans to launch the ‘Biker Service’ in Karachi as well. While this service offers great convenience, it does come with an extra fee. Applicants in Lahore are expected to pay Rs. 1,200 on top of the standard CNIC fee to avail of this service. This additional cost is a small investment in the name of time and convenience for the busy lives of Lahore’s residents.
In conclusion, NADRA’s ‘Biker Service’ and the Pak ID app exemplify the authority’s commitment to making identification and registration services more accessible, efficient, and user-friendly. These initiatives reflect a forward-thinking approach to serving the public and adapting to the evolving needs of citizens.
