Ijazat Aap Ki (Your Permission) is a service launched by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) in Pakistan in March 2023. The service allows citizens to give their consent before their CNIC (Computerized National Identity Card) is verified by an institution. This helps to protect the privacy of citizens’ data and prevents unauthorized access.
To use Ijazat Aap Ki, citizens need to register their mobile number with NADRA. Once their mobile number is registered, they can give their consent for their CNIC to be verified by sending an SMS to a short code. When an institution requests to verify a citizen’s CNIC, NADRA will send an SMS to the citizen’s mobile phone asking for their consent. If the citizen consents, NADRA will share the citizen’s CNIC information with the institution.
Ijazat Aap Ki is a valuable tool for protecting the privacy of citizens’ data. It helps to prevent unauthorized access to citizens’ CNIC information and can help to prevent identity theft and fraud. Ijazat Aap Ki is a positive step forward for data protection in Pakistan.
Here are some of the ways in which Ijazat Aap Ki supports data protection:
- It gives citizens control over their data. Citizens can choose whether or not to give their consent for their CNIC to be verified.
- It helps to prevent unauthorized access to data. Only institutions that have been authorized by the citizen can access their CNIC information.
- It can help to prevent identity theft and fraud. By giving citizens control over their data, Ijazat Aap Ki can help to make it more difficult for criminals to steal their identities.
