What are the charges for NADRA SMS services:
Normally these NADRA SMS services are free of cost. You can utilize them without incurring any charges. But it also depends on your network provider. Some networks require some balance in order to send these SMS to NARDA numbers. So, use these services according to your network provider.
Usage for overseas Pakistanis:
Unfortunately, these services can only be accessed within Pakistan using Pakistani mobile numbers. Overseas Pakistanis cannot utilize these services on their overseas numbers. Instead, overseas Pakistanis can use alternative ways such as the NADRA helpline to get any kind of information.
NADRA’s SMS-based services have made it convenient for beneficiaries to access important information without the need for physical visits. These services ensure transparency, security, and ease of access. Remember to use these services responsibly and report any discrepancies to NADRA for further assistance.
