Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Governor Shaukatullah Khan promulgated the K-P Deserving Widows and Special Persons Welfare Foundation Ordinance 2013, stated a handout issued by the provincial social welfare department on Tuesday.

Following the promulgation of the new law, a new welfare foundation will be established under the auspices of the social welfare department.

“The foundation would be an independent statutory body to be run by a Board of Governors consisting of a chairperson and 10 members. A majority of the members of the board shall be eminent persons from civil society,” the handout read.

Aside from performing other functions, the board will be responsible for approving cases of deserving widows and differently abled people for financial assistance grants. The board shall also take steps for the generation of resources for the foundation from within the country and abroad, reads the document.

Initially, the provincial government will allocate Rs500 million for the foundation, while philanthropists from within the country and abroad would be asked to join in for generating funds.

According to the handout, Rs30,000 per month will be given to widows, while Rs25,000 per month will be given to people with disabilities.

As per the statistics collected by the social welfare department, there are 69,000 impoverished widows and an equal number of differently abled people in the K-P, states the handout. In the first year of its operation, 14,000 widows and 13,000 people with disabilities will benefit from the scheme, while more will continue to benefit over the years.

A spokesperson for the department was confident that philanthropists will generously contribute for a noble cause. He further added the affairs of the foundation will be transparent and open to public scrutiny.

The official elaborated those people receiving aid from zakat funds shall also be eligible to receive assistance from the foundation because the Guzara allowance (Rs1,000) paid monthly to widows from zakat is too meagre in view of current inflation.

The foundation shall take care of non-Muslim and Muslim widows and persons with disabilities, added the spokesperson.

KP raises police’s pay to match Punjab

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Wednesday announced to increase the salaries and allowances of the provincial police to bring them on a par with those of Punjab’s policemen.

The announcement was made by Chief Minister Pervez Khattak during an award distribution ceremony at the Chief Minister’s House while responding to Inspector General of Police Nasir Khan Durrani’s complaint about police’s low salaries and increasing problems.

On the occasion, the chief minister also announced additional allowance for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Bomb Disposal Unit (BDU) staff for handling sniffing dogs in the fight against terrorism.

Mr Khattak appreciated police for rendering great sacrifices to protect public life and property and said the government would fully support them in hour of need.

“We will bring the salaries of our police on a par with those of Punjab police with immediate effect,” he said.

Earlier, the inspector general of police said more than 750 police officers and personnel had laid down their lives fighting terrorism and that the number was on the rise.

He, however, said it was a matter of great concern that despite rendering so many sacrifices, policemen were getting less salary than their counterparts in Punjab.

Mr Durrani complained that policemen were given no extra allowance.

He distributed cash awards and commendation certificates among 30 police officers and personnel, who besides repulsing terrorist attacks on various police stations and checkposts in the province.

A fresh police constable in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is paid Rs17,000 a month, while the monthly salary of his counterpart in Punjab is Rs20,000.

An official of the account branch of Rawalpindi police said the fresh recruit to the force in the province was paid Rs20,000 every month but he was not entitled to draw other allowances.

It is learned that newly-recruited constable in Balochistan is paid Rs14000 a month and after training, the amount of money goes up to Rs17000 per month.

Details of Sindh police’s salary and allowances are not known.

A college only for Women,Thats Great

Swabi to have women?s varsity, medical college - DAWN.COM

Quote:
Swabi to have women’s varsity, medical college ​



SWABI, Nov 29: The provincial government will build a medical college and women’s university in Swabi district to promote higher education, said Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Speaker Asad Qaisar while addressing a function in the University of Swabi (UoS) here on Friday.

He said that it was essential for Pakhtuns to get higher education so they could face the modern day challenges. He said that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government was giving priority to restoration of peace, education and health.

Mr Qaisar said that the medical college had been named after great Pakhtun leader Gaju Khan. He said that the government had also planned to strengthen academic position of the UoS among all universities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

However, he did not speak about the unrecognised status of the university. The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has not yet recognised the UoS, which is creating doubts in the minds of its students.

“The government has given Rs500 million to the University of Swabi for acquiring land and completing other basic requirements. We would provide more funds to the varsity,” he said.

Mr Qaisar said that the women’s university in Swabi would facilitate the girls from Buner, Mardan, Nowshera and lower parts of Malakand division. “We have also been striving to build another cadet college besides Kernel Sher Cadet College in the district,” he said.

The provincial government has also planned to build an education city in the district. “In this connection we have already signed a memorandum of understanding with the British Council,” he said.

Prof Noor Jehan, vice-chancellor of the UoS, spoke about the curricular and co-curricular activities of the university and its performance since its establishment.

Abdul Wali Khan University vice-chancellor Dr Ihsan Ali said that the establishment of several universities and colleges during the last few years had made it clear that the government was giving due importance to education.

Mass transit system: Metro bus project to be funded by Turkish company – The Express Tribune

Quote:
PESHAWAR: Yardimeli, a Turkish-based organisation, expressed interest in financing Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s (K-P) metro bus project during a meeting held between the company’s delegation and the transport department on Wednesday.

Speaking at the occasion, Adviser to Chief Minister Yasin Khalil, who chaired the meeting, said Turkey and Pakistan enjoyed friendly relations and expressed hope that Turkey would also invest in various other sectors in K-P.

“Turkey can easily create a place for itself in the Pakistani market as compared to Europe,” said Khalil.

The official further said the provincial government was committed to overcoming the various traffic problems faced by commuters in the province and introducing reforms in traffic laws.

“Peshawar’s traffic has been divided along various routes and the most important one was named Route 1. The metro bus will run along this route,” announced Khalil, adding a mass transit scheme will be launched from Pabbi to Hayatabad which would provide easy access to Peshawar for other districts.


Yardimeli head Ilyas Kaymaz assured all-out support to the K-P government for the initiation of the metro bus project.

Meanwhile, Khalil also formed a six-member committee comprising three officials from the transport department and three officials from Yardimeli which will prepare a feasibility report of the much-anticipated project in the next two weeks.
This is a very Good news,
