ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday directed to complete registration of all International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) according to the new rules and regulations by next month.
The interior minister chairing a high level meeting said the completion of registration process under the new regulations will bring transparency and prove vital for Pakistan’s security.
Nisar said the new system is further aimed to strengthen partnership between government and non-governmental organisations. He directed to ensure all possible assistance to all registered INGOs to make their work easier.
The meeting was informed that so far 66 INGOs have formally been registered, whereas rest of the applications are being reviewed.
The meeting also approved registration of three more INGOs, while ten others were not allowed registration, and the fate of 36 other INGOs will be decided next month.
It was also decided that three months grace period will be given to those INGOs which are denied registration so that they can complete their ongoing projects.
