ECC Approved to Spend Rs. 280 Million to Introduce I-Voting in Pakistan

The Cabinet’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has approved Rs. 280 million for the introduction of internet voting (i-voting) in the country.

During its meeting on Wednesday, chaired by Finance Minister Hammad Azhar, the ECC provided Rs. 280 million to the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications (MoITT) for advice and implementation of i-voting.

MoITT had requested funds from the ECC to hire an independent consultant to carry out a comprehensive assessment before i-voting was introduced in the country.

MoITT had previously prepared and distributed an Expression of Interest (EoI) after receiving confirmation from the Pakistani Election Commission (ECP) and the National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA).

In addition, the ECC has approved a voluntary separation scheme (VSS) created by the PIA, under which 25% of the employees of the national airline are relieved.

ECC also approved Rs. 457 billion for the restructuring of PIA and Rs. 330 million for the Department of Defense for aircraft maintenance.

کابینہ کی اکنامک کوآرڈینیشن کمیٹی (ای سی سی) نے 50 ارب روپے کی منظوری دی ہے۔ ملک میں انٹرنیٹ ووٹنگ (آئی ووٹنگ) متعارف کروانے کے لئے 280 ملین۔

ایم او آئی ٹی نے ای سی سی سے فنڈز کی درخواست کی تھی کہ وہ ملک میں آئی ووٹنگ متعارف کروانے سے قبل ایک جامع تشخیص کرنے کے لئے ایک آزاد مشیر کی خدمات حاصل کرے۔

ایم او آئی ٹی ٹی نے اس سے قبل الیکشن کمیشن آف پاکستان (ای سی پی) اور نیشنل ڈیٹا بیس اینڈ رجسٹریشن اتھارٹی (نادرا) کی طرف سے توثیق حاصل کرنے کے بعد ایکسپریشن ایکسپریشن (ای او آئی) تیار اور گردش کی تھی۔

اس کے علاوہ ، ای سی سی نے پی آئی اے کے ذریعہ تیار کردہ رضاکارانہ علیحدگی اسکیم (وی ایس ایس) کی منظوری دے دی ہے جس کے تحت قومی کیریئر کی 25 فیصد افرادی قوت کو فارغ کیا جائے گا۔
