Allocation of dev.funds
Peshawar—The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Commission has decided to make a drastic decrease in discretionary quota of Chief Minister and Finance Minister for district development. This 5 times reduction in development funds would squeeze the quota of chief minister from 10 % to only 2 % and that of provincial Finance Minister from 5 % to mere one percent.
This decision with consensus recommendation of the members of the commission would be implemented in next financial year following the formal approval from the Chief Minister.
This was decided in a meeting of the PFC that was chaired by Provincial Finance Minister Muzaffar Syed Advocate at Civil Secretariat Peshawar wherein besides PFC members, District and Tehsil Nazims, secretaries of Finance, Local Government and Law, the KP Senior Minister for LG Inayatullah Khan was also in attendance.
