The Child is allotted same 13 digits registration number which will be his/her future CNIC # when he/she applies for CNIC upon attaining 18 years of age. It is the responsibility of every child’s parents/guardians to get registered their children under 18 years of age.

Fee Structure
The processing fee for the CRC is Rs.50 for the normal category and Rs.500 for the executive category. There is no urgent processing of the CRC.
