NIC has already been launched in the large cities like Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar. The NIC Karachi has also won the award.
National ICT R&D fund is now open for suggestions and registrations from qualified and licensed legal entities to help support NIC program in Quetta. The Incubation center in Quetta will be managed by these legal entities.
