Every possible effort is being made to remove errors and make this system more transparent, he added. The members of the Committee stressed to resolve the problems being faced by the people residing in far flung areas of Sindh and Balochistan in attaining CNICs and also asked to improve the quality of the paper being used for CNICs. Chairman Committee Senator Talha Mehmood complained of using poor quality paper and several other mistakes in CNICs issuance process and said that terrorists could get advantage of this negligence on the part of NADRA. He said that CNICs, issued by NADRA to Federal Minister for Population Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan and MNA Malik Abrar Ahmed, have incorrect information about their family history. Chairman NADRA said that an inquiry has been initiated against those responsible for inserting wrong information about these figures while case has been also registered. The Committee would be apprised about the real situation soon, he maintained. The Committee observed that NADRA has the complete information about citizens so effective steps should be taken to improve security system of the country.

He said that effective steps are needed to stop drug smuggling smuggling, illegal transport across state or national boundaries of goods or persons liable to customs or to prohibition. Smuggling has been carried on in nearly all nations and has occasionally been adopted as an instrument of national policy, as by Great Britain  to Gulf and Middle East countries from Pakistan as such practices bring bad name to country. More than 4800 Pakistanis are detained in the foreign countries on the allegations of drug smuggling, he said adding that every possible effort would be made for their release. The Committee also appreciated efforts of the government, Interior Ministry, Foreign Ministry, members of the committee and other officials for playing their role in release of Pakistani family detained in Saudi Arabia. It decided to accord warm welcome to this family and ensure the presence of their family members at the airport on its return. The Committee also ordered to submit the report about the reinstatement of two employees who were sacked on the charges of corruption from NADRA. The Committee assured its full cooperation in getting the NADRA funds from Finance Ministry.
