You have to simply send a message to 8877 along with their CNIC numbers and branch codes of the nearby bank that are announced and can be checked here. See the designated E-branches at the end of this article.
And you will be charged Rs2 plus tax for this text SMS.

You will be directed to bring your Original CNIC with a copy to the respective E-branch of the bank along with the SMS that you received from 8877 services, between specific dates.
