Sindh High Court orders Nadra to issue B-certificate to orphan girl

The Sindh High Court (SHC) Wednesday ended the miserable ordeal of an orphan girl who has been deprived by ordering the Nadra to issue B-form to her within ten days.

A bench of the SHC directed Nadra to issue B-form to the orphan girl on the basis of her maternal aunt’s CNIC so that she can appear in the matriculation examination.

The petitioner, Maham Rahman, stated before the court that the board has refused to issue her an admit card for exam because she doesn’t have a B-form that NADRA issues on the basis of parents’ CNICs.

She said she was three months old when her father died and three years later her mother passed away and she was living with her maternal uncle and aunt since then

During the hearing, the court asked a lawyer representing the Board of Secondary Education Karachi to explain why a B-form is necessary for issuance of an admit card for exams, to which he replied that it is necessary for a student’s identification.

The court observed that if the girl wants to continue her education someone should be her guardian.

Nadra officials told the court that they did not have any objection if the court orders to issue CRC to the girl. They also assured the court of issuing Maham B-form as per the court’s directives.
