Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa Net Hydel Profit

PM promised to give khyber Pakhtunkhwa government Net Hydel profit of Rs 110 billion during month of July .  lets hope the notification doesn’t stuck some mysterious place in WAPDA and ministry of finance.

Pay and Pension commission recommendation

Media report suggest ministry of finance has declined to implement pay and pension commission  recommendation of minimum salary of  Rs 8500 for government employee . I humble request to Prime minister is to atleast  implement his 1 May order of 7000 as minimum pay .

Implementation of NFC award

Implementation of NFC award is perhaps the most daunting task for the present democratic government . Record allocation of funds for provincial government, Gas surcharge for Baluchistan government, Net hydel profit for Khyber Pakhutkhuwa government & and additional funds for rehabilitation purposes due to war in the province is all part of NFC award .

Come july 2011 many federal subject will become provincial subject in light of eighteen amendment. which will makes the next year budget making even more tricky .
