Your CNIC is a vital document that proves your citizenship and is required for many important tasks, such as obtaining a driver’s license, passport, or government job. So, if you lose your CNIC, it’s important to take action quickly to avoid any complications.
Report the loss to the police.
This is important for two reasons:
- It creates a record of the loss, which can help to protect you from fraud.
- It may help the police to recover your CNIC or to catch the person who stole it.
Here are some steps to follow:
If your CNIC was lost accidentally, you can lodge a “Rapt.”
This is a simple procedure that can be done at any police station. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, and other identifying information. You may also be required to sign an affidavit stating that your CNIC is lost.
If your CNIC was stolen, you need to lodge an FIR.
This is a more serious matter, and the police will investigate the crime. You will need to provide as much information as possible about the theft, such as the date, time, and location where it occurred.
