OpEd- PM Khan's personal initiative, Pakistan Citizen Portal makes unprecedented achievement in history of Pakistan
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Citizens' Portal established by Prime Minister Imran Khan is facilitating the people from all nooks and corners of the country and it has become the most popular platform for redressing complaints in a short span of eleven months.
Through the portal, all citizens can convey their complaints to high officials and Prime Minister's Office makes sure that these complaints are resolved.
A grievance redressal report by all ministries regarding complaints received against them is being sent to the Prime Minister on regular basis. The report entails the volume of complaints redressed and also the feedback provided by the people in detail.
The number of registered citizens on Pakistan Citizen Portal has reached to 1.173 million. So far, 12,33,000 complaints have been received, of which 1057334 resolved, a redressal rate of 86 percent. Of these, 92 percent were redressed at the federal level and 88 percent in Punjab. Likewise, 87 percent were remedied in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and 79 percent in Balochistan while only forty percent were rectified in Sindh.
