The National Database Registration Authority (NDRA) has introduced an online family verification drive, ‘Qaumi Tasdeeq-o-Tajdeed Campaign’.
The new system will help people identify if any irrelevant person is registered in their family. But, the initiative will be more useful for married women who want to keep an eye on their husbands.
By sending a simple message to NADRA, they can get details if their husband is hiding his second marriage. To find out, women just need to text their husband’s CNIC number and its date of issuance to 8009.
Here is the text format: <13 digit CNIC No> Space
In response, you will receive details of your family members. If you spot any incorrect information or the name of an unrelated person in the list, write ‘1’ in reply to inform NADRA. A representative of the NADRA will then contact you from its helpline 051-2778009 to update the family details.
Women who want to know if their husband is hiding a secret second marriage can just cross-check their fears with NADRA. This is a very easy process.
Send your husband’s 13-digit CNIC number with no space and its date of issuance at 8009. That’s it. You will get the family members associated with him including his wives, kids, and siblings.
Men are not very happy about this decision of the government, whereas on the other side women are extremely happy. One can also use this database to confirm that the details of family members registered are correct. Upon sending your own CNIC on 8009, you will receive details of your family members.
If any information is incorrect or the name of an unrelated person is included in the family members, write ‘1’ in reply to inform NADRA. A representative of the NADRA will then contact you from its helpline 051-2778009. If the information is correct, then reply ‘2’ to confirm it to the authority.
However, it should be noted here that people would only be able to know about their family or second marriage of Husband if it’s registered with Nadra. Nighat Dad, a Pakistani lawyer, and activist has women regarding the overall process and how much valid CNIC is important in such cases.
