The Pakistan High Commission London has warned the overseas Pakistanis against the unauthorised NADRA centres, operating in the different parts of the United Kingdom.
The High Commission clarified that these NADRA Information Centres are unauthorised bodies and are not sanctioned by the High Commission or any of its Consulates General offices, as per a statement.
The statement read that since such bureaus have no legal authorisation to operate, the High Commission and its Consulates would not be responsible for the wrong and out of date information that is given by such centres.
It was also mentioned in the statement that it may be observed that on a multiple occasion, applications have faced tough times in getting their NICOPs processed owing to the fudging in their applications which have at times causes NADRA cards being delayed in some cases.
Additionally, it added that the applicants are advised to avoid give personal data at such centres as they risk giving their sensitive information which could possibly be used in the future for doing fraudulent activities.
The supposed NADRA Information Centres are also warned that the use of any official logo or name of the Government of Pakistan is unlawful and is liable to prosecution.
It is further mentioned that the authorised NADRA operations are only conducted by the High Commission in London and its Consulates throughout the UK to facilitate the community in various parts of the United Kingdom.
The fee structure for normal NICOPs is £44 and £72 for executive.
The Pakistani community are advised to practise caution in this matter as NADRA cards are a sensitive document. The High Commission would take no responsibility for any problems that might occur as a result of such activities.
