Chief Minister's Vision

  I feel satisfaction to record that Punjab Government is making all out efforts for welfare of the public. It is duty of my government to cater for the needs of the inhabitants of the province.  Punjab Government to achieve this prime objective has initiated many pro poor projects/schemes for the welfare of the common folk. It includes Ashiyana Housing Scheme, Danish Schools, Laptop Distribution, Stipends to Students through Punjab Education Endowment Fund, Skill Development Programmes, computerization of land record and Metro Bus projects. Zakat department, being Punjab’s largest official charity network, is doing an excellent job by providing financial support to thousands of families for their subsistence, health care, education and skill development through vocational training institutes. I also commend the efforts of the department for using modern mode of payment to Mustahqeen through branchless banking which would certainly ensure more prompt and transparent disbursement of Zakat money. I hope the department of Zakat & Ushr will work more efficiently and effectively to serve the indigent and needy people.
