Punjab Governor’s House under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s austerity drive has saved Rs13.6 million during FY2020-21, reported a private TV quoting well-informed sources.

Sources say the Punjab Governor House following the PM’s austerity drive only spent Rs2 million in the FY2020-21 despite the budget of Rs15.6 million. Rs13.6 million were saved by Governor Ch Sarwar.

The governor used to check the expenditures of the house on a monthly basis that helped in saving a huge amount.

Sources further said the visitors are only being offered tea with biscuits at the Governor House Punjab after Chaudhry Sarwar has assumed charge of his office.

The TV channel reported that the governor has directed the staff to further minimize the expenses.

In September 2020, it emerged that the present government led by the PTI reduced the expenses of the Prime Minister (PM) House up to 68 per cent under its austerity measures.

Imran Khan fulfilled his promises for adopting austerity measures after making a record cut in PM House’s expenses by 68 per cent. The expenses of staff and other expenditures of the PM House visibly reduced from over Rs500 million to Rs310 during the last two years.
