IHC bars NADRA from buying 20 million chips


The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday barred NADRA from buying 20 million chips being used in the preparation of new identity cards.
The case was heard by a bench headed by Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui.
The lawyer of the applicant argued before the court that NADRA had awarded the bid to a blue-eyed company by disqualifying other applicant companies.
The applicant urged the court to cancel the bid as it was partial, unfair and incomplete.
The court adjourned the hearing until third week of June and summoned the secretary interior, chairman NADRA, companies in auction of the bid and other stakeholders to appear on the next hearing.
