Uplift budget of religious affairs ministry approved

Decision on Hajj Advisory Committee and short-term Hajj flights still pending

APP February 03, 2023


The National Assembly Standing Committee on Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony on Thursday approved the development budget of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, while the decision on Hajj Advisory Committee and short-term Hajj flights would be taken later.

These decisions were made in the committee meeting held under the chairmanship of Syed Imran Ahmed Shah here at the Parliament House.

The committee was told that due to non-availability of funds and rising prices of essential commodities, only 74% of the Kartarpur Corridor bridge was completed, but 98% of the sanctioned amount of Rs450 million was spent on it. Therefore, during the current financial year, ie before June 30, it would also be completed.
