The tendering process should not go beyond six months rather it would be better to reduce the time duration for tendering and as such the schemes should be completed before the time tag.

The provincial government would arrange additional resources for different schemes which were need driven and required for certain localities. However, decision in this regard would be on a complete report of required number of schemes for the public welfare.
