National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) website crashed last night after it registration forms for PM Imran Khan’s “Naya Pakistan Housing Programme” were uploaded.
UPDATE: The website has again come online at 1:00 PM, after several hours of blackout.
The registration form was uploaded after Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to launch the 5 million housing scheme for homeless and underprivileged people in Pakistan. The website crash happened due to the overflow of online traffic pouring into the website.
The premier earlier announced that registration for the houses will begin from Thursday with the cooperation of NADRA, which has been tasked with collecting data to identify those in need.
In the first phase of the project Sukkur, Quetta, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Swat, Islamabad and Faisalabad districts will be facilitated. The forms can be submitted from October 22 to December 21 along with Rs250 registration fee at the selected district offices.
The aim of the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme is to provide low-income people with their own houses which will, in turn, generate numerous employment opportunities for the youth of Pakistan. This project will connect more than 40 industries including that of steel, textile, sanitary, transportation and, plastic.
