  • All govt Employees should work from home, so we can save electricity in offices and save petrol which is wasted in transportation.

    Kaam to uno ny waisy b chuk ky rekha howa hota hy.

  • once women joined the academia due to its 6 hours working, that is no more valid in university environment, no doubt , women also comprises of half of the population of Pakistan, they should also contribute to the economy, but policy makers should also think about our next generations, where mothers and fathers both will be out of home, then who will take care of our kids ?, policy should be there to facilitate the women, even can be offered 6 hours workings on lesser package especially for mothers. so that they can take of their kids which is their primary responsibility.

    • Appreciate your point. I also discussed this limitation with my company, but they refused as they need full time resource.

    • In some countries in Middle East, women outnumber men in academic environments. They are more likely to even have degrees in some cases. They can contribute more to research than men in some areas. So I do not support the above poster “sughra” in denying them their ability to make our society better.

      If people are so concerned about their children, they would do something about 100% education for children, 100% healthcare for children. But instead they are “concerned” about the “mothers” of children. Automatically they are saying women should not have a role in workplaces. By following that logic, why even educate girls? After all, all girls are potential mothers. Why bother educating them?

  • (Minister further said that “Work from Home Policy” is a unique initiative and she also stressed upon female officers posted at Ministry of Information Technology to use this facility in a responsible manner so that their accessibility, communication and productivity do not suffer) Bhai is ka kia matlb, Ministry of IT Kuch Karti b hai :O I’m shocked

  • bas ley dey kay khawatein he nazar ati hain relaxation kay liyey………….Mard to hotey hee kam choor hain aur sara din weliyan martey hain ………..they dont have any responsibilities just treated as ATM machines…………..Un justified behavior with men.

  • There is only one female in the whole Ministry except minister as she is already working from home or somewhere else. I think they should concentrate in approving legitimate policies which can benefit pakistan, and not by allowing so called officials to sit in home and work from there. Pakistan ki IT aisay hathon main hai jin ko IT ki alif Bay ka bhi nahi pata… Please follow the Canadian government initiatives for specific experts for specific tasks.
