370,000 Afghans to get ACC in Pakistan

Despite registering 370,000 undocumented Afghan nationals across Pakistan, the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has yet to deliver cards to the applicants.

Pakistan is issuing Afghan Citizen Card (ACC) to them after their registration that will legalize their stay in Pakistan for indefinite period without getting refugee status, reports Dawn.

The officials concerned said that Nadra had yet to start printing of cards to be provided to the registered Afghan citizens. They said that Nadra did not start printing of cards since launching of the registration process.

"The authority is supposed to issue card to Afghan nationals soon after completing registration process," said an official. He added that backlog had increased owing to delay in the printing process. "Not a single card has been issue so far," he said.
