Islamabad: At least 40 officers of a government body which denied that a terrorist caught in India was a Pakistani have been sacked for issuing fake identity cards.

All those dismissed are from the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

They included a director general, a general manager, a deputy general manager, an intelligence officer and managers, Geo TV reported.

All of them operated out of NADRA offices in Karachi and were allegedly involved in issuing fake computerized national identity cards.

Four director generals were also demoted for misusing their authority, the report said.

NADRA denied that the terrorist caught in Udhampur in India on August 5 was a Pakistani, saying he did not exist in their data base.

In a bid to curb corruption and dependence on one Public Distribution System (PDS) shop, the Central government will launch the ‘one nation, one ration card’ scheme.

The scheme, according to Union Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Ram Vilas Paswan, will ensure that all beneficiaries especially migrants can access PDS across the nation from any shop of their own choice.

The Minister asserted that the biggest beneficiary of this will be those migrant labourers who move to other states to seek better job opportunities and will ensure their food security. “This will provide freedom to the beneficiaries as they will not be tied to any one PDS shop and reduce their dependence on shop owners and curtail instances of corruption,” the Ministry said in a statement.

Other states have also assured that IMPDS will be implemented at the earliest, the statement said.
