NADRA has redesigned its website to better facilitate users. The revamp is focused on user friendliness and is significantly better than the old version.
Previously, there was no central hub for gathering information. Often you would have to waste energy to visit NADRA’s closest offices to gather the required information. This issue was experienced by majority of the people across Pakistan but thankfully, it has changed now.
NADRA’s updated website now holds all the information required for all the services it provides. Along with that, it also offers home delivery for CNIC and other various cards.
Let’s illustrate with an example. If you are applying for CNIC, you hover over the Identity drop down menu and select National Identity Card from the list.
Initially, you will see the description and a bunch of FAQs below it, which can often solve any queries you may have in your mind.
The green button on the right of the description will help you in gathering information regarding the required documents. Clicking on the green button will prompt this screen:
You have to select either Card or Certificate from the drop down menu. The information regarding both are displayed on the right side, under the What is your required identity type? question.
Once you have selected the option for Card, you will need to select one of the options displayed on the right side i.e. New Card, Modification, Reprint, Renewal. When you’re done with that, enter the age and you will have the list of all the required documents.
The process is equally simple for other services NADRA offers.
Overall, the experience of the updated NADRA website is much more user-friendly and the agency deserves credit for making it accessible.
The website has been recently reconstructed which is why the response time is rather slow. The loading of the webpage takes lengthy amount of time as well. However, it is expected that NADRA will sort this minor issue out in coming future.
However, we think it might just be the most intuitive government operated site yet but it could do with some tweaks since it’s rather slow to load on our end. If you feel there’s another one that takes the crown though, feel free to let us know in the comments below.
