Punjab Overseas Pakistanis Commission Act 2014
Overseas Pakistanis are valuable asset for Pakistan. Huge amount of home remittances (money they sent back home to their families) sent by overseas Pakistanis are the backbone of Pakistan’s economy. Overseas Pakistanis are also capable of investing lot of money into Pakistan’s ailing economy. Recently Pakistani Government took lot of steps to improve its standing among the overseas Pakistanis. Punjab Overseas Pakistanis Commission Act 2014 is also a right step by Punjab Government. Its preamble says that it is expedient to establish the Punjab Overseas Pakistanis Commission to receive and redress the grievances of overseas Pakistanis relating to concerned offices and to deal with ancillary matters.
The most important thing which this act created is the Punjab Overseas Pakistanis Commission at the top. It also establishes the District Overseas Committee at each district level which is given task to solve the problems and complaints of overseas Pakistanis.
At District Level committee hold its meeting regularly under the supervision of DCO and local MPA. An overseas Pakistani can file online complaint and someone can attend the meeting on his behalf. All the government officers of major departments are at the meeting to solve the complaint. An online system is also developed which connects all Districts of Punjab to the Lahore regarding complaints and meetings of overseas Pakistanis.
