As of January 2024, the fee for the NADRA B-Form, or Child Registration Certificate, is Rs 50 for regular service and Rs 500 for executive service.
“In recognition of the importance of valid identification for all individuals, including children, the government of Pakistan introduced the B-Form, commonly known as the Child Registration Certificate (CRC). This initiative facilitates access to fundamental services such as school admissions, health records, and other critical matters for children.
The CRC registers individuals under the age of 18 in the official government records, and the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) is the designated institution responsible for issuing this identification document. To enhance accessibility, the government has implemented measures to streamline the B-Form issuance process, empowering families to easily register their children in the government records.
NADRA issues the B-Form based on the place of origin, and obtaining it requires providing proof of childbirth from the union council. To cover the administrative costs, there is a nominal fee for obtaining a B-Form. The regular fee is Rs50, and for those seeking executive services, an option is available at a fee of Rs500.
