NADRA CNIC Verification Through SMS

NADRA Pakistan have recently started CNIC verification via simple SMS. How it works ? One have to  send an SMS to 7000 containing the CNIC number. i.e Write CNIC Number without dashes and send it to 7000. In response you will get name and father’s name for that particular CNIC search query. This service is charged at 10 RS per SMS without tax. Three telecoms companies namely Warid, Telenor and Mobilink have joined this so far and Ufone and Zong will be hooked up soon. In addition to 7000 there is another short code 7001 for security forces to obtain more detailed information.

This is really a very dangerous and risky approach taken by the NADRA for CNIC verification. Mobile phone companies already have so many flaws and security loop holes in their system. For example as we reported Free Balance Inquiry Tips for Telenor Ufone and Zong . So this is not only the single example there anr many others which are known by ordinary mobile phone users. A country where there is no clear DATA Protection Act and privacy laws this ease of access to private and personal information can lead to a serious disaster. Specially CNIC informations along with date of birth can be misused toward credit card fraud. I am not sure how much secure is NADRA and mobile phone companies link? In any case any venerability at either end could easily lead to a serious problem.

    Dear Sir,
    It will be best and better if the Nadra introduces to prepare and supply the CNICs to the persons who are very poor without any charge; It is very essential to say that in our lovely country there is no dearth of finance, therefore, kindly consider to my this application.
    With best regards.
