  2. Sir,
    I need to know that my CNIC card is expired . Should I need to renew my card before getting nikkah-fied or I can attach my expired copy of cnic and then after nikkah I can request to issue new card ? Kindly let me know.

    1. Ms.Farhat,

      Af far as we know, on nikkah ceremony, the Nikkah-khwan maulvi sahib will accept your CNIC’s expired copy to attach with nikkah-nama record. However, a second-opinion may please be taken from groom’s nikkah-khwan. After nikkah, you can get renewed your CNIC with husband’s name and his address.

      On the other hand, you can get renewed CNIC before nikkah by paying an urgent fee. Following is a detail of renewal fees:-
      Normal Fee: Rs.400 (receive card within 30 days)
      Urgent Fee: Rs.1150 (receive card within 15 days)
      Executive Fee: Rs.2150 (receive card within 7 days)

      In light of above detail, you can decide what you feel more comfortable.

    1. Dear Mr.Ahmed Ali,

      Agar ho sakay tau kisi aur NADRA Centre (Awami Markaz waghera) say contact kijiay. Apnay computer record ki bunyaad pay NADRA hi aapka problem solve kar sakta hay. Jo documents aap Nazimabad Centre lay ker gaey thay woh sab saath lay jaen aur Form-B (“Bay” Form) bhi zaroor lay jaen. Form-B saabit kar sakta hay keh aap sirf two behen bhai hain aur aapka koi bara bhai ya behen nahi hay.
