Accountability offices in Fata

Published August 1, 2015

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Sardar Mahtab Ahmed Khan on Friday asked the provincial accountant general to introduce accountability offices in Fata to keep a check on ghost employees and absenteeism in various departments.

He stated this during a meeting with Accountant General Shahzada M Taimur Khusro, who called on Mr Mahtab at the Governor House here.

The governor said such a software and technology should be introduced, which could help locate and check ghost employees and absenteeism in various departments in the tribal region. Mahtab Khan suggested that the accountability process should be modernised and computerised in order to make it more efficient. He said that outsourcing should be done for the purpose.

He said that those employees who were working abroad but taking salaries from offices in Fata, should be punished in order to produce efficient working system in both Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata.
