Nadra introduces “Nadir,” among the world’s leading providers of biometric identification technologies

With the launch of its state-of-the-art Automated Finger Identification System (AFIS) for civil reasons, Nadra has become one of the world’s leading providers of biometric identification technology.

Nadra made a big step forward by making this cutting-edge AFIS on its own and adding it to its suite of technology options. This system is called “Nadir.”

When he spoke at the event, Nadra Chairman Tariq Malik said that the right kind of innovation grows not just businesses or governments, but also countries.

The chairman said, “Indigenous development of AFIS is a major step forward not only in the field of civil identification but also in the goal of nation building.”

The chairman said that with its advanced technology, we can now store fingerprints and identify people quickly and accurately for a wide range of public good reasons, such as immigration, border control, and social services.

“Nadir, as a first-of-its-kind achievement in the field of biometric identification technology, shows that the organisation is committed to innovation and solidifies its position as a global leader in advanced identity management solutions.”

In a statement, Nadra said that the country’s own creation of AFIS technology is a big step forward in the field of biometrics. AFIS uses the unique features of fingerprints to create a strong and reliable way to check someone’s identity.

Based on the Fingerprint Verification Competition (FVC), a benchmarking test held in Italy that is well-known around the world, Nadir has an amazing accuracy rate of more than 99.5%.

“At the same time, Nadir’s advanced features are set to change the way biometric identification is used in civil applications,” said the statement.

Providers from wealthy countries like the USA, UK, Russia, Japan, France, Germany, and others have a large share of the global market for biometric identification technology.

With the creation of Nadir, Pakistan joined the group of countries that have made their own AFIS technology. It is now getting ready to sell its product on the international market to help other countries improve civil identification, border control, and e-government.
