PDWP Projects

The PDWP also approved several infrastructure projects, including the Rs. 1.95 billion CM Himmat Card Program for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). Additional authorized programs concentrate on improving and rehabilitating roads in several districts:

  • Terhada Multan Khurd Road rehabilitation (about Rs. 1.5 billion)
  • The road from Bhera Malikwal Shahpur Sahiwal Road Section Jhawarian to Shahpur, District Sargodha, needs to be improved. (1.94 billion rupees)
  • Repair and enhancement of Khushab Pail Chakwal Road to the Khushab District Boundary (about Rs. 4.187 billion)
  • Girot Adhikot Rangpur Kallurkot Darya Khan Road Improvement/Reconstruction from District Boundary Khushab to Darya Khan, District Bhakkar (Rs. 6.046 billion).

Key authorities attended the meeting, including Chief Economist Nasir Iqbal Malik, P&D Board Secretary Dr. Asif Tufail, top representatives from provincial departments, and heads of pertinent departments. It is anticipated that these initiatives will have a major impact on Punjab’s infrastructure and development.

The CM Himmat Card Initiative 

The CM Himmat Card plan for PWDs, a high-profile initiative approved by PDWP, is set to provide targeted help and support to those with disabilities, enabling them to live empowered lives and achieve a higher standard of living. The plan has been approved for Rs 1.95 billion.

All-inclusive Development Method 

The province’s commitment to a holistic approach to development is demonstrated by the fact that the PDWP has approved development projects totalling roughly Rs. 27.5 billion. Along with representatives from other provincial ministries, the Chief Economist and P&D Board Secretary attended the meeting, underscoring the notion that these activities are group-based rather than individual.

Conclusion

When these projects are completed, it is envisaged that they will improve Punjab’s infrastructure and the people’s precarious economic circumstances. Through investments in vulnerable communities, infrastructural upgrades, and human capital development, the PDWP is helping to create a more prosperous and inclusive Punjab.
