The committee also decided to direct the DLCs to resolve the complex cases within thirty days. District-level committees were supposed to oversee the complex cases of blocked CNICs and subsequently verify and clear these cases within a specified time frame.
Meanwhile, DG Operation NADRA briefed the committee on overall progress made by NADRA on the non-complex cases that were blocked by NADRA and supposed to be temporarily cleared within 6 days if the applicant's case was filed within his/her own district, or 30 days if his/her case is filed outside the native district.
The committee appreciated the performance and prompt tangible actions taken by NADRA and Interior Ministry in this regard. However, the committee desired that certain technical bottlenecks need to be removed so that the affected people can get maximum relief.
With regard to providing the legal status to Bengalis in Pakistan, the committee deliberated in depth on the provision of legal status to Bengalis living in the country. Thus the committee agreed on the recommendation to propose the constitutional amendment in this regard and legalize the marginalized segment of society once and for all.
