Rawalpindi: The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has partnered with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to streamline property transfer procedures by implementing biometric verification services.
The RDA’s governing body, led by Rawalpindi Division Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chatha, officially approved this pivotal agreement. The meeting also greenlit a Memorandum of Understanding between RDA and the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB), aiming to enforce the e-filing and office automation system (EFOAS) with mandatory biometric verifications for property transactions.
