Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday launched the Letter of Administration and Succession Certificates Initiative for Punjab.
According to Radio Pakistan, under the Letter of Administration and Succession Certificates Act, legal heirs can get succession certificates from the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) within fifteen days without approaching the courts.
Addressing the launching ceremony in Islamabad, the premier said the government’s goal was to facilitate the people. “A government functions on taxpayers’ money, and under a social contract, it serves the people.”
He said that when such a system starts decaying, the public starts serving the government and not the other way around. He lauded the launch of succession certificates, stating that often times the government does not have time to think about upgrading existing systems.
