      Hi shehzie, sorry for the late reply. I think fee to obtain NADRA Death Certificate from local union council should be around PKR 1000.

      Walaikum Assallam, I don’t know why they asked for Court Decree for issuance of NADRA Death Certificate. Do you have all required documents as listed above?

    I submitted form for death certificate of my mother in UC-3, near Liberty Chowk, Hirabad, Hyderabad but even after lapse of about three months, they didn’t issue the certificate with plea that we have not received computerized form from Nadra. Kindly help me and advise action.

      you can try to get NADRA death certificate from any other union council if they have forms available.
