The Government of Punjab recently announced that a helpline is created for Punjab Overseas Pakistanis Commission which offers day and night support to overseas citizens of Pakistan.
The series of never ending surprises by Punjab government continues. Be it a metro bus, a transport app or scooties for women. This time it has gone beyond the Pakistani Land and has introduced a special helpline for overseas Pakistanis.
Are you an overseas Pakistani citizen worrying about how to register complaints? Then Punjab Government has answered your prayers. The Punjab Information technology Board (PITB) has created the helpline through which you can now register your complaints easily by dialling the number +92 42 111-672-672.
The Punjab Overseas Pakistani Commission was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif at the beginning of the year 2015. Through this initiative, overseas Pakistanis were facilitated with online complaint registration but now this special helpline will further assist them related to issues faced.
The commission intends to provide assistance for the following matters through its helpline:
- Property disputes and housing societies
- Family disputes
- Criminal cases
- Telephone connection/problems
- Electricity connections/problems
- Sui Gas connections/problems
- Water connections
- Travel Agents & Airlines related cases
- Employment requests/recommendations
- Financial matters/disputes
- Bank related matters
- Co-operative Societies claims
- Advisory services/general information and any other nature of complaints
Keeping in mind the support of overseas Pakistani in boosting the economy of the country, the government of Punjab has played its role and has taken a great step by the introduction of a separate commission for handling of complaints lodged by these overseas citizens of Pakistan.
