    Credit to PTI for stamping down on this. Certain perks can be introduced once the countrt is back on track.
    Civil service has always been my passion. I enjoy what I am doing now, but I will give it up for civil service if I can.

    If I do get into civil service, I hope the government will give me the helicopter that Imran Khan is using to commute - the helicopter that costs only 50 rupees per km, which is cheaper than the cars the government provides to civil servants.

    I agree. However, how credible is the statement by the new Minister of Disinformation, Mr. Fawad Chaudhry? According to him, the helicopter that Imran Khan is using to commute costs 50 rupees per kilometer only. Are being taken for a ride? (pun intended).

    How is Rs 50/km cheaper than Uber and Careem? Do you even know how far a km is?

    Step 1: Google the term "figure of speech".

    Step 2: Open your Careem application (assuming that you spend enough time in Pakistan to use Careem here) and check the rate of using Careem Business from Bani Gala to PM Secretariat.

    The fare is more or less equal to the cost of the helicopter that Khan saab is using to commute.

    Only a fool would prefer the Civics and Corollas of Careem Business to the thrill of traveling in a helicopter. I hope Careem will be procuring these helicopters soon enough.

    Ok I did precisely as you said, the following is the route from PM's Secretariat to Bani Gali. Google Map says the route is about 12 km.

    Next I looked at the Careem app, unfortunately for you my father wasn't in government service so I cannot come to Pakistan five times a year, but whenever I do come on my haq halal ki kamai I have to use Careem often hence I had the app installed on my phone. The Careem app predicts a maximum cost of Rs. 521 in Careem Business. See screenshot from my phone below:

    Now since you are a doctor and perhaps your math isn't the best, and me being an engineer math is my bread and butter I'll do the simple division for you. Rs. 521/12km = Rs. 43/km. You said Careem Business costs more than the helicopter ride. Only for a doctor Rs. 43 would be greater than Rs. 50-55

    Keep in mind this is the cost that Careem Business is charging for the whole trip including the cost of captain's fees, fuel, car depreciation and their own profit plus taxes.


    Like I mentioned in another thread these things are way above your pay grade and you should focus on measuring people's fevers and checking their blood pressure.

    Mathematics might be your bread and butter, but it appears that comprehending basic English is not. Please read my last post again - I said Careem Business is "more or less" equal to the cost of this fantasy Suzuki Mehran helicopter.

    PKR 43 is "more or less" equal to PKR 50-55. If you do not know what the term "more or less" means, once again, Google is your friend. I do not think I can explain this in simpler English - perhaps I should move to Canada so that I can understand the low level of English that you people use to communicate, but this is the best that I can do for now.

    Hardly of any significance? Really?

    PTI has been tooting its horn over how it is going to end VIP culture, but our revolutionary PM is commuting on a helicopter from his house to the PM Secretariat on a daily basis. How is this not hypocrisy?

    Why are you defending the Minister of Disinformation for making a complete fool of himself by asserting that it only costs 50 km/hr? He has become the butt of the jokes in the Pakistan and I don't think you should be deflecting the issue. Very disappointing.

    Perhaps while picking out my English you forgot your own English and couldn't comprehend this part:

    Keep in mind this is the cost that Careem Business is charging for the whole trip including the cost of captain's fees, fuel, car depreciation and their own profit plus taxes.



    And you wouldn't be able to make it in Canada because here your father doesn't work in government service to get you a nice gig, you will have to start from the bottom.

    Media will always be anti government. That's how they make there money as controversies attract viewers. Of course there will always be some channels that will go against the grain and be pro government (such as geo in PMLN era) to brand themselves differently.

    Good, atleast they're paying attention to it. Rather have PTI pulled up for alleged hypocrisy than this sort of thing go unchallenged. It's something which will eventually be put to right as soon as proper legislation is formed for what constitutes a proper awam friendly protocol. PTI shouldn't shirk away from this, what they're embarrassed by for a few days now, will ensure this entitlement to live in excess via tax money ends

    Obviously there's some sour grapes from the media knowing their days of living lavishly via handouts from the government are over.

    There should be a legislation for security forces to independently decide the protocol. This will end all the debate.

    PM Imran’s helicopter trips cost ‘much more’ than being claimed: report

    Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, while speaking to a local television channel, defended the PTI chief’s use of the helicopter by saying that “the average cost is about Rs50-55 per km”.

    According to BBC Urdu, the cost of the trip is in stark contrast to Chaudhry’s claim.

    The distance between the former cricketer’s residence in Bani Gala and the PM Secretariat is 15 kilometres. In aviation terms, this comes down to 8 nautical miles.

    The government owns seven helicopters of the same kind, with two at the prime minister’s disposal. Rs16,000 is the amount spent on travelling one nautical mile.

    If you multiply this by eight, it adds up to Rs128,000. Even if the cost of fuel and the country’s currency valuation is not taken into account from April, the cost is much higher than the amount stated by Chaudhry.

    A senior police official, who is a privy to PM Imran’s security said that “security officials are stationed along the route from the secretariat to Bani Gala while security is also placed in the helicopter’s route”.

    Hence, the cost is not even close to Rs55 as it has been claimed.

    So far we have seen so many figures banded about. So which one is right ? Can you please give me your figure? And btw didnt you spend hours defending NS and his treatment in London, did you feel he was right to seek treatment abroad, you also spent hours defending his right to use PIA planes which cost 2.5 crore for one journey, do you feel guilty for defending him.

    Don't thank me for the free real Pashto lesson, not gulabi pashto which you are using here.

    It is pronounced without the D, but while writing in pashto-english, it is important to write it with the D to differentiate it from a watch which is called garay or garai.

    Once again, please don’t thank me for the free Pashto lesson. However, I am willing to give you further lessons if needed.

    Mamoon becomes a bit illogical at times with his hipster "I must go against the trend" agenda but he didn't say the Pashto word wrong there.

    Automation of processes at govt departments to help PTI implement austerity measures

    Following Prime Minister Imran Khan’s directive to reduce government spending, an IT firm has stepped forward and announced that it is working with the government to automate all necessary departments and their operations.

    This proposed automation will help the government departments to work towards a paperless ecosystem and automate their required processes, read a statement issued by mobile app development company A2Z Creatorz.

    Commenting on the development, CEO A2Z Creatorz Muhammad Zohaib Khan said, “We are very positive about the plans of the PTI government and find tremendous hope in the alliances that information technology will bring towards the achievement of those plans. This will lead to the positive image and transparency in public offices of Pakistan that is so desperately needed.”

    The automation and digitization of all government procedures, payments and tax collection remain one of the primary objectives of all federal and provincial governments for achieving complete e-governance.

    Earlier this year, the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) had signed an agreement with the Excise, Taxation and Anti-Narcotics Department, Balochistan for automation of tax collection system across the province.

    Imran Khan Niazi is Selected PM of Pakistan who is subservient of GHQ & Political wing of ISI.


    Just over a month that he is PM and as expected 17 U turns of PTI government.


    1. 16 U turns evidence : https://www.thenews.com.pk/print/370...ops-in-30-days


    2. 17th U turn is Radio Pakistan fiasco where IK wanted to hand over Radio Pakistan’s building to Biggest Media Group ally of ISI ie ARY network for the immense Boot Polishing of last 5 years.


    3. Austerity drive from cars to buffalows to Helicopter ride of 55 rupees has made mockery of Pakistan at International stage.


    Advertisement of Cars only costed 8 Crore rupees. (Tax money of Pakistanis)


    8 Crore loss only in advertising some horrible state cars and expected revenue is 500 times less than IK’s expectations.



    Now look at Buffalo Austerity Drive.



    Shambolic government run by most Musharaf’s (military dictator) team members.

    Pakistan's austerity car auction falls short, new PM Khan commutes by helicopter
    Asif Shahzad
    5 MIN READ
    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Lower-than-expected sales in an auction of Pakistani government vehicles have dealt another early setback to new Prime Minister Imran Khan’s populist vow to raise quick revenues through cost-cutting, a campaign that has drawn both praise and ridicule.

    People visit an auction of government owned used cars at the premises of Prime Minister House in Islamabad, Pakistan September 17, 2018. REUTERS/Faisal Mahmood
    The auction on Monday raised about 200 million rupees ($1.6 million), government official Mohammad Asif told local Geo TV. That is just one-tenth of the amount he had predicted, and only 61 of just over 100 vehicles were sold.

    The event had been billed as part of Khan’s drive to give “the nation’s wealth to its rightful owners”. Critics say most of the measures so far are more symbolism than significant savings.

    SPONSORED


    Former cricket star Khan, 65, took office last month after an election campaign in which he railed against what he denounced as corruption and waste by the two main political parties that ruled for than 50 years in between periods of military rule.

    Khan promised to cut costs, including trimming motorcades of government officials and selling public land.

    “It is a change of mindset,” he said in a speech on Friday. “I will be counting every single rupee I have to spend on me.”

    Khan’s campaign, however, has been somewhat undercut by his near-daily helicopter commute from his home in the hills surrounding Islamabad.


    Critics say the cost-cutting so far has been mostly cosmetic. “There is nothing new in the current austerity drive,” said political commentator Raza Rumi.

    Auctions of aging government vehicles, for example, have taken place for years, with less publicity.

    Nearly three-quarters of the 101 vehicles on offer on Monday were more than 10 years old. Two were 32-year-old Toyota Corollas.

    And the total sales indicated little interest for the event’s showcase items - bullet-proof Mercedes estimated at about $1.5 million each.

    IDEAS

    The auction revenue is dwarfed by the government’s fiscal deficit, projected this year for 1.7 trillion rupees.

    However, information minister, Fawad Chaudhry, said even symbolic steps were important for building national unity and small savings could add up.

    “If you try to see its effect on the GDP, it is small, but in numbers, it is not small,” Chaudhry told Reuters.

    Pakistan is likely to soon face painful conditions for foreign financing - possibly an International Monetary Fund bailout - to address dwindling foreign currency reserves and a ballooning current account deficit.

    Still, reaction to the new government’s austerity drive has been mixed.

    When Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi announced he would not fly first class, only business class, while abroad, many pointed out this was already the case under the previous government for most trips.

    Other early ideas - to cut some 500 staff from Prime Minister House and establish a six-day work week for civil servants - were shelved as unworkable.

    HELICOPTER OPTICS

    In particular, Khan has been mocked for taking a helicopter into Islamabad most days, after declaring he would eschew luxury perks.

    Information Minister Chaudhry argued that the helicopter uses less fuel than a motorcade, saying at one point it cost only 50 rupees (40 cents) per kilometer.

    That calculation provoked ridicule.

    “Why don’t you stop metro bus service and instead let people enjoy the cheap helicopter rides?” quipped a TV host.

    In fact, Khan’s helicopter costs about 200,000 rupees ($1,633) per hour factoring in fuel, crew, maintenance and inspections, Syed Naseem Ahmad, president of the Society of Air Safety Investigation Pakistan told Reuters.

    Optics aside, analysts say Pakistan will have to take more painful policy cuts in government spending to truly reduce the deficit. The new government on Monday did raise gas prices by 10 to 20 percent.

    A further indication of a wider austerity policy is likely to come on Tuesday, when Finance Minister Asad Umar announces revisions to the budget.

    SPONSORED


    There were about 500 attendees at Monday’s auction and some were happy to take the vehicles off the government’s hands.

    Nawab Gul bought a 2005 Toyota Altas for 1.25 million rupees ($10,000).

    “They are saying the national coffers are empty. So, here, have my two cents,” Gul said.

    Logic would suggest that only those who can actually vote in these By-elections would need to register right now. I am from Lahore, but settled in the UK. By-election is not taking place in my constituency therefore even though I CAN register myself, it wouldn’t really make a difference and I can still register closer to next elections.

    I'm so surprised at people having a dig at this noble practice. Austerity doesn't mean to sell off everything and live on streets, it means to live within your means and get rid of "excess", what Imran is doing is getting rid of this "excess".

    Have a look below and you might figure out what "excess" means.

    Austerity is all well and good but i have serious reservations over salary paid to MNAs/MPAs/ministers. If you want good and professional people in politics who are not allowed to run businesses and obviously zero tolerance on corruption then these people must be paid well enough so they can support their families.

    It's probably not a big issue now that billionaires are in parliament but most middle class MPs have openly admitted their salary is not enough to survive and most people who report to them get paid more.

    Salaries for senior civil servants also cannot be increased because of this archaic BPS system where the salary of a police inspector who commands more than 50 officers and faces threats and pressures 24/7 is made equal to that of a primary school teacher or a head clerk. Ridiculous. Similarly salary of a District Police Chief is equal to that of a high school principal.

    Didn't know that so definitely ridiculous, hope this is part of police reforms that they get paid enough to be able to feed their families and only then you can expect reduction in corruption and professionalism, you can't just ask people to be honest without rewards for good work.

    I also heard negative feedback about traffic rule enforcement especially fines for not wearing helmet, while there is absolutely no doubt wearing helmet can help save thousands of lives/serious injuries a year, i think they should've spent first few months educating people handing out pamphlets warning them fines will be imposed if they fail to wear helmets. During the process, they should've ensured there are enough helmets in market and at set price as well. Then start issuing fines after all these steps rather than overnight changes.

    I think everyone knows that it’s illegal to ride a bike without helmet. Ppl don’t do it because they know that they’ll get away with it by paying bribery or by not being stopped at all. It’s more about implementation rather than education.

    Doubt you need to 'educate' people on the merits of wearing a helmet. However, I agree that pamphlets should have been handed out warning that fines will be issued from a set date.

    I remember a few years back Karachi police announced that they would be doing random spot checks for people to see the veracity of their licence from a certain date, this led to people lining up by the hundreds outside the licence office.

    The traffic police actually ran a very good education campaign in Lahore from what I hear. They handed out free helmets to people for a week or two. People still didn't listen.
