    From what i have heard, the ID card can be used if you're above 18. Otherwise you need to have smart card. Passport is for foreign nationals

    I gave my 3 o level papers last year by using my past port amd statemnt of entry. Everyone told me you should have either the pass port or your smart card. I went for the pass port. But this year i heard one of my friends saying now you require a smart card. No pass port.

    According to new rule, you would need CNIC if you are over 18, and Smart card if you are under 18, and passport is for foreign nationals.

    I am hearing this for the first time. What exactly is a smart card? Is it another name of the computerized NIC?

    it is kind of a computerized cnic....a cnic is only a card but a smart card has a chip installed in it...this has your data..
    in the future this chip will have your account details..driving license in softcopy and other such stuff..so all the trafic police will have to do is swipe your card with a machine for your driving license..also this is available under 18 too
