The Sindh government and the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) on Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch a system of online for the same-day issuance of computerised birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates from every union council/union committee.

The ceremony to sign the MoU was held at the Sindh Secretariat as Local Government Secretary Roshan Ali Shaikh signed the agreement along with the director general of Nadra, Sindh.

Speaking on the occasion, the provincial local government minister said Sindh would become the first province in the country to launch an online system for issuing Nadra’s computerised certificates.

He said that along with the union committees or union councils, the online system would also be launched in the cantonment boards of the province.

He said the online system would greatly benefit the masses of the province and it would also help end fraudulent practices being observed in issuing these certificates.

The minister added that the new system would start working in place of the present offline system for the issuance of various certificates by Nadra, and the new system would be used for final registration and giving certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce.

He said the online system would be introduced in the province to facilitate the masses as per the vision of the leadership of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party.

The local government secretary informed the participants of the ceremony that Nadra would be responsible for taking care of the new online system. He said the data of the system would be made computerised and accessible by the minister, secretary and other district officials.

He said the online system would be used to verify the computerised national identity card of an applicant, and it would automatically generate an alert if there was any issue related to the CNIC of the applicant.

He said that in case any certificate was erroneously issued by Nadra, then the system would be utilised to cancel such a certificate. He said the new system would establish a transparent process for the issuance of Nadra certificates, and all the fraudulent practices in this regard would be prevented in future.
