The major aim behind starting these counters in rural areas is to make it easy for the locals living in the rural and further areas as it is hard for them to travel to the metropolitan areas, and then stand in the long queues to get themselves registered for the CNICs.

CNICs for Transgenders
Recently, NADRA also started issuing CNICs to transgenders, by this lifting up their status in the country. Those with no information available of their biological parents would also be issued with CNICs.
Previously, transgenders were not provided with CNICs because they did not have valid or enough documentation to get themselves registered.
