National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has directed its field offices to no longer entertain non-vaccinated individuals until they provide a vaccination certificate.
According to the notification, the NADRA centers across the country entertain almost 200,000 citizens on a daily basis for identity card (CNIC) related issues and if the authority stops entertaining these individuals, everyone with CNIC related issues will be unable to get their vaccination certificates.
It is pertinent to mention that CNIC is one of the pre-requisite for getting the COVID-19 vaccine and if non-vaccinated people are not facilitated, several citizens will be unable to get their jab.
This is a copy of the notification:
In unrelated news, the federal government is likely to announce three-day holidays for Eid-ul-Adha 2021 as per the summary sent by the Interior Ministry to the Prime Minister’s Office.
Holidays for Eid ul Adha 2021 are likely to fall on 20 July to 22 July, 2021. However, a notification is yet to be issued by the government in this regard.
