Commissioner Mardan division Syed Abdul Jabbar Shah on Friday said that district administration is trying its best to provide better facilities to the masses.
He expressed these views while addressing a free domicile distribution ceremony arranged at the commissioner’s office.
Deputy commissioner Habibullah Arif also addressed the ceremony. Officials of the education department, government school teachers, students and local journalists attended the ceremony.
Syed Abdul Jabbar Shah said that students are an important part of our society and the district administration is always striving for their welfare.
He added that the district administration provided free domicile to 25,000 students of government schools.
The Commissioner said that making a domicile was a difficult task for the students which cost about Rs. 1500 and besides, they wasted a lot of time in visiting courts and other necessary government offices.
He added that this initiative of the district administration saved the students from such complications and made it possible for them to be provided a domicile at their doorstep at no cost.
Addressing the function, Deputy Commissioner Mardan Habibullah Arif said that the district administration had launched a pilot project in the month of June in which data of all government schools in Mardan district was collected.
He added that 25,000 students were given free domicile at the doorstep without any affidavit, confirmation of revenue staff and court rounds.
He said that spending two to three days on making a domicile is a routine which was a difficult task for a student.
He added that however the district administration has decided that with only the affirmation of the school principal the whole process of the domicile will be considered completed.
He added that through this way the whole process of making a domicile was completed in a day.
At the end of the ceremony Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner distributed free domiciles among the students.
