IT’S THE LAW (03/07/2023)

Pakistan’s National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has added a data protection service for citizens and a SMS enrollment service for citizens to enroll mobile numbers with Nadra. As of this week, all verification transactions in the country will require going through Nadra’s system to gain citizen consent via use of a 6-digit passcode that will be sent to the individual’s mobile number requesting consent.
