In the ongoing reform process, the government has proposed computerisation of land record in FATA.

  • Future of FATA reforms in wake of Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification

    The reforms process in FATA was initiated two years back on the direction of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Recently the former cabinet of Nawaz Sharif had also approved the recommendations of FATA Reforms Committee.

    However, the cabinet was also dissolved with the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in Panama Papers case of 28 July, 2017. The reforms process earlier faced hindrances due to opposition by certain political parties. The disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and dissolution of the federal cabinet has served as a fresh blow to the already fragile reforms process.
