NADRA has now launched the SMS service for CNIC verification. As told earlier, the authority is re-verifying the CNICs to help implementing National Action Plan (NAP). The official date for NADRA CNIC verification service to go live was 1st July. However, it can be used right at this moment.
Follow these instructions to verify your CNICs along with ones of your family members:
A NADRA representative will contact you in case you ought to reply ‘1’. Any person either family head or individual can use this service to check registered family members. NADRA has already started sending messages regarding the procedure to family heads.
There is a major drawback in this NADRA CNIC verification service. If anyone knows your CNIC number, he/she can get the list of your family members and can also reply to verify the list.
The service seems to be working fine for all telco users except Telenor. In case you can’t perform NADRA CNIC verification, wait for 1-2 days so that it gets complete working.
