The federal ombudsman said that being the poor man’s court, the Wafaqi Mohtasib Secretariat should ensure expeditious relief to the people. He showed complete satisfaction in the process of implementation on his recommendations/decisions, said a press statement issued here on Friday. The Implementation Wing gave a detailed briefing to the federal ombudsman on the implementation status of findings passed by the federal ombudsman against maladministration by different federal government agencies. He was informed that overall percentage of implementation of the findings pertaining to the year 2019 was around 97%. He was also informed that during the last three months, 7,138 out of 9,775 decisions have been fully implemented, whereas 2,637 decisions are at different stages of implementation. Performance of all the regional offices in the context of implementation of findings relating to those offices was also reviewed individually. It was observed that the regional office Lahore implemented 2,333 cases out of a total of 2,961 while the regional office Karachi implemented 1,035 cases out of 1,319. Similarly, regional office Dera Ismail Khan implemented 807 out of 1,102 cases. Implementation ratio of the remaining regional offices was also found to be satisfactory. He was informed that some of the cases could not be implemented for either being sub judice in court of law or due to non-availability of funds for which requests for supplementary grant have been made by the concerned agencies to the Finance Division. In the context of the unimplemented cases pertaining to the CDA as well as Federal Government Employees Housing Authority, the federal ombudsman was pleased to direct that a meeting should be convened with said agencies shortly to identify the impediments in the implementation process and work out modalities for removing those impediments.
