The government on Friday abolished the mandatory requirement for overseas Pakistanis to obtain National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP), one of the sources of revenue for the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA). It also reduced biometric verification charges for the labourers going abroad.
Both the decisions were taken during a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan in the wake of a briefing given to him by the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development.
The government decided to undertake a couple of new initiatives to facilitate the overseas Pakistanis.
The PM announced that the government would soon unveil a special incentives package aimed at encouraging the overseas Pakistanis to transfer remittances through banking channels.
