Fata Reforms

  • FATA Reforms: Registration of undocumented FATA land is uphill task for govt  

    The total area of the semi-autonomous Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) is about 27,000 square kilometres. Unlike other parts of the country, the people of FATA don’t possess the documented record of their lands and property. 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.
