  4. Respected Sir,
    I want to add word “Hafiz” with my father’s name as it is “Hafiz” on my Matric certificate.

    1. Dear Mr.Sajjad,

      In your father’s CNIC, if “Hafiz” is also added with his name then you can easily add “Hafiz” with your father’s name in your CNIC.

      Please visit any NADRA Centre with your father. Also take with you Matric Certificate and father’s original CNIC. NADRA will keep your original CNIC and will issue to you a new CNIC with addition of word “Hafiz” with your father’s name.

      Best regards.

      1. Thanks for your immendiate abd kind response.
        Word “Hafiz” was added on old manual card system. I entered my father name with the addition of Hafiz on my matric certificate. When my father renewd NIC, word “Hafiz” was removed in new card but word “Hafiz” still on my all educational documents. Currently word “Hafiz” is present on my father death certificate.
        So, should I remove word “Hafiz” from all my educational documents or NADRA will add.

        1. Dear Mr.Sajjad,

          It is very difficult and lengthy procedure to remove the word “Hafiz” from all of your Educational Documents. Instead, please visit NADRA Centre with following documents, for adding in your CNIC the word “Hafiz” with your father’s name:-

          1) Your original CNIC
          2) Your father’s old manual NIC
          3) If available, original of your B-Form
          4) Your father’s Death Certificate
          5) Original and photocopies of your all educational certificates/ degrees

          Despite of your efforts, if NADRA does not add “Hafiz” with father’s name, we think you may leave this situation as it is. If the word “Hafiz” is not added in your CNIC, no matter. In future, if you face any problem, you have so many other documents to justify the word “Hafiz” which your father used with his name.

          With best regards,

    1. Dear Mr.Maaz,

      Send any person’s CNIC number and CNIC Issue Date on 8009 and find his all family members’ names.


  5. I want to get my daughter’s CRC.i.havenot updated my cnic status to married yet but my husband has changed the status to married.Do I need to change my status to married also for applying for CRC of my daughter?

    1. Respected Ms.Rida,

      It is mentioned on our web page that following documents are required by NADRA for issuance of CRC (B-Form):-

      1) Original CNICs of father and mother with photocopy
      2) Child’s father name must be available on Mother’s CNIC
      3) Union Council’s “Child Birth Certificate” (Original & copy)

      Above point No.2 is important which says : “Child’s father name must be available on Mother’s CNIC.” Therefore, we think it is necessary that you first try to update your CNIC as per the marital status. After updating your CNIC, please read carefully each line on our web page and have the useful and easy guidance to get the CRC.

      With best regards,

    1. Dear Mr.Adeel Shaikh,
      It is not difficult to change your daughter’s name in B-Form and we are giving below the procedure:

      1) Please give advertisement in any two newspapers in which you will write that “I am changing my daughter’s name from A to D. All people are requested to call my daughter D not the A.”

      2) Advertisements may be given in newspapers as DUNYA, AMAN, QAUMI AKHBAAR, etc. Advertisements in these newspapers are low price and will cost Rs.200 or Rs.300 only.

      3) After the advertisements are published in newspapers, please take these newspapers to Union Council’s Office in your area. Show this to the UC Office and tell them that you want to change your daughter’s name. They will accept these advertisements. After some procedure, they will issue your daughter’s New Birth Certificate with new name.

      4) Take following documents to NADRA Office in your area:-
      (i)Original & copy of New Birth Certificate of your daughter (ii)Original or copy of old Birth Certificate of your daughter (iii)Your original CNIC and copy.

      Now, NADRA has no objection and they will issue you a new B-Form with new name of your daughter.

      Wish you good luck.

      1. I am Pakistani and I live in UAE , Duabi and I like to get CRC / B-Form for my 2 years old Daughter. She was born here in pakistan . but I am working in UAE i have NICOP.
        What is the process of obtain CRC for overseas Pakistani’s?

        1. Dear Mr. Abubakr,

          We are really very sorry that due to overlook we could not reply your message in time.

          We think, there is no “online” system by NADRA to get CRC / B-Form. However, if your wife is here in Pakistan, she can go to nearest NADRA Office and apply for CRC. They will issue CRC after some easy procedures. Following documents will be required:-

          1) Original CNICs of father and mother with photocopy
          2) Child’s father name must be available on Mother’s CNIC
          3) Union Council’s “Child Birth Certificate” (Original & photocopy)
          4) If your wife will go NADRA with any of her blood-relation as
          mother/ father/ brother/ sister, then no attestation of any Govt.
          Officer will be required on your application form

          If you will pay an Urgent Fee of Rs.500, CRC will be issued to you within seven (7) days. Otherwise, on Normal Fee of Rs.50, CRC will be issued within 30 days.

          NADRA staff will get your wife’s fingerprints and other data. She must avoid mehendi / dust or oil on her fingers. Otherwise NADRA staff will not take fingerprints of your wife and procedure will be late/incomplete.

          Sir, if you and your wife are in UAE, then whenever you or your wife visit Pakistan, you can make CRC after paying Urgent Fee of Rs.500/-.

          With best regards,
