KARACHI: Sindh government on Thursday ordered to suspend all the fake domiciles, PRCs issued during the last 10 years through forgery and corrupt practices, ARY News reported.
In a letter issued by the provincial home department, all the commissioners and the deputy commissioners of the provinces have been asked to suspend all the domiciles issued over the past 10 years through corrupt practices.
In a letter, the commissioners and the DCs have been directed to ensure field verification, educational documents before issuing domiciles and PRCs to any citizen.

It was demanded to hold a separate high-level inquiry to scrutinise domiciles issued during the last 10 years.
The report stated that more than 200 domiciles had been issued in four districts of Sindh in a specific time by using the addresses of factories and shops.
The committee had asked the provincial authorities to reject the students’ admissions in different education institutions besides cancellation of all illegally issued domiciles.
