There is a secret meaning behind your CNIC number

Every Pakistani registered with the Government of Pakistan has a national identity card number. CNICs can be obtained from NADRA offices and each CNIC is made up of a different set of 13 digits.

All of these digits are not merely there in a random order. They carry important details about the card holder.

  • The first digit reveals the province a person belongs to. (1 = KP, 2 = erstwhile FATA, 3 = Punjab, 4 = Sindh, 5= Balochistan, 6 = Islamabad)
  • The second digit tells your division, third represents the district, fourth the tehsil and the fifth shows the union council of the person.
  • The next seven are random.

The last one tells the person’s gender. Men are assigned odd numbers, while women even numbers.
