These schemes include “E-Office replication in all divisions of the Federal Government (phase-ii),” “National Job Portal,” “Pak App,” “Smart City App,” and “Prime Minister Office Task Workflow Automation & Upgradation on (phase-iii).”
The other schemes of the IT sector that could not find their place in the PSDP-23 included “Unified DLIMS in Pakistan,” “Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security and Big Data Analysis at the University of Turbat,” “Establishment of Kech Business Incubation Centre,” and “Establishment of Business Incubation Centre in Balochistan University of Engineering and Technology.”
According to the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (MoITT), there have been several meetings with the planning commission regarding new projects for the IT sector.
During these meetings, the ministry has tried to convince the planning commission of the allocation of funds for these new projects.
The planning commission described that due to the current financial crisis it’s not possible to provide funds for the respective schemes.
