ISLAMABAD (APP) National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has so far issued 45,000 Pakistan Cards under which Rs. 20,000 financial assistance was being given to each flood-hit family in Sindh province. The Authority has enhanced the number of special distribution centres in Badin and Tando Muhammad Khan and would continue the process until each and every family is accommodated, following the required procedures, Deputy Chairman of Authority, Tariq Malik said. Talking to APP here on Saturday, he said the cash relief programme was launched from Tehsils - Badin, Golarchi and Tando Bagho which were fully damaged due to floods and added to facilitate the victims initially five special centres were established. Malik said his organisation in collaboration with Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and concerned DCOs has also completed all arrangements in other affected areas where issuance of such cards is expected soon. The Deputy Chairman said to further facilitate the victims, representatives of banks have also been placed in the special centres so that the victims could be assisted at the earliest. He said virtual accounts for verified flood victims have been created by the partner banks for transparent disbursement of relief aid. All affected families after issuance of cards are able to withdraw the cash through either ATMs or POS machines positioned at the registration centres. As soon as the card is issued, the affected families can get cash at the same spot, he said and added under the scheme Pakistan Card or ATM card is issued with a cash tab of Rs.20,000 in two equal instalments of Rs.10,000 for each affected family. Replying to a question, he said efforts were being made to further strengthen coordination with the concerned DCOs of all affected areas. Lists have already been provided and after necessary validation by Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and biometric verification by NADRA the cards are issued to ensure transparency in cash disbursement. Tariq Malik said that NADRA has also mobilized its mobile registration vans (MRVs) in rain-hit areas in case any flood victim does not possess Computerized National Identity Cards (CNIC). Answering another question, Tariq Malik said he along with Director General Radio, Murtaza Solangi also conducted a programme to receive live calls from affectees. He said their problems have been conveyed to concerned departments for their early redressal. He said Chairman NADRA has recently visited the rain-hit areas of Sindh to examine the process of distribution of Pakistan Cards. Tariq Malik said he would also visit the areas next week.
