Government of the Punjab, School Education Department has issued the official Notification letter to all the Chief Executive Officers (DEAs) in connection with consideration of date of birth for retirement as on CNIC.
It has been noticed with concern that date of birth on CNIC and Secondary School Certificates / School leaving certificates etc are conflicting which leans to issues at the time of retirement during verification of date of birth.
CNIC issued by NADRA is an authenticated document and is internationally accepted for issuance of various legal documents such as Passports, Nikah Nama, Land Record, Driving License etc. Therefore, CNIC is more authenticated legal document than School Leaving Certificate etc.

In view of above, I am directed to request you that any variation in date of birth in CNIC and Secondary School Certificate / School Leaving Certificate etc may be rectified within 03 months. In future, at the time of retirement, date of birth as on CNIC will be considered the valid one.
In this regard instructions may be circulated to the field formation to get rectification of date of birth on CNIC with Secondary School Certificate / other certificates, if any.
