UN lauds Pakistan on completion of maiden smart card registration of Afghan refugees

The United Nations (UN) has lauded Pakistan for the successful completion of the first-ever smart card registration of Afghan refugees.

The campaign, supported by UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), was launched on April 15 last year and ended on December 31.

The documentation renewal and information verification exercise, officially known as DRIVE, also provided the refugees with smart identity cards. Over 40 verification sites were operational across Pakistan during DRIVE, while mobile registration vans facilitated Afghan refugees living in remote areas.
