Islamabad Police has set up a special desk in the capital city to offer a one-stop solution to the overseas Pakistanis on priority basis. The special counter has been set up in the newly-built Police Facilitation Centre in Islamabad’s F-6 sector.

The initiative was taken by the Ministry of Overseas and Human Resource Development in collaboration with the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police to establish strong connectivity to resolve expats complaints

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Ijaz Shah along with Special Assistant to Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Zulfiqar Bukhari inaugurated the Model Police Facilitation Center in Islamabad on October 8.

Bukhari said that a special counter has been set up in the Model Police Facilitation Centre to ensure that issues of overseas Pakistanis are addressed swiftly. 

He added the officials of the Overseas Pakistanis Foundation had been deputed over the special desk to establish a strong connectivity among the departments concerned for resolving expats’ complaints on fast-track.

Inaugurating the special desk for overseas Pakistanis at Police Facilitation Centre, Islamabad F-6, the interior minister lauded the efforts of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police for setting up the centre on modern lines.

“Four more citizen facilitation centres will be established in the capital city to ensure speedy redressal of public issues through one window solution,” Federal Minister for Interior Ijaz Ahmad Shah said on Tuesday.

“Materialisation of such initiatives depict that we are moving in the right direction under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has been strong proponent of public welfare,” he remarked.

The move was the part of efforts made by the government to facilitate the expatriates, besides encouraging their investments in real estate sector of the country, he added.

Zulfikar Bukhari Bukhari shared that the overseas ministry had received maximum number of complaints regarding the property disputes of overseas Pakistanis, which was the reason why a comprehensive policy was chalked out to give them permanent relief.

Earlier, briefing Inspector General Islamabad Muhammad Amir Zulfiqar said that PWD had prepared the facilitation centres building in the shortest period of eleven months only.
