BOONI: The NADRA centre in Booni is unable to cope with rush of citizens seeking new national identity cards or renewal of their CNICs. This is the only centre which caters to the entire upper Chitral. People of far-off villages are facing immense hardship while travelling to Booni and back and waiting in long queues to be entertained by the NADRA staff. There is an urgent need for the opening of another centre in Mastuj along with occasional visits to villages by mobile NADRA teams. The picture below (taken by Nadir Sharif) shows rush of applicants at the NADRA centre in Booni.
