PM Imran launches NADRA’s Biometric Capturing New Mobile Application
ISLAMABAD: The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has launched NADRA’s Pak-ID mobile application to facilitate applicants of National ID cards using the Pak-ID portal.
The mobile app helps to capture biometrics and scan documents digitally by using the camera of smartphones.
The prime minister applauded Chairman NADRA Tariq Malik’s innovative idea of the mobile app which is a step towards implementing PM’s vision of inclusive registration and digital Pakistan.
Pakistan becomes a trailblazer in ID Management Industry by launching a mobile app which captures biometrics- fingerprints, facial recognition, and scan documents needed for the processing of citizens’ ID cards and documents.
Using the digital app on smartphones, all citizens including expatriates will be able to digitally capture fingerprints, photographs, and documents. This is a leap forward putting an end to the conventional method of using specialized equipment or physical paper for processing ID documents in NADRA.
Chairman NADRA Tariq Malik said, “The innovation will revolutionize the National ID Eco-System in Pakistan by providing public convenience.”
He said 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 and e-KYC.
Chairman NADRA stated that it would open new Vistas for businesses allowing them to rapidly onboard users and provide modern password-less authentication.
Small businesses, startups, and fintech organizations will also harvest its digital dividends as rent-seekers will be eliminated and the cost of conducting business will reduce. The offering of digital goods will stimulate young entrepreneurship and promote e-services.
