RAWALPINDI: The government has announced plans to construct the first-ever “Rawalpindi Circuit House”, a modern building that will house all district administrative offices in one place.
The project aims to streamline administrative work, cut down on travel time for employees, and provide a central location for citizens to access government services.
The Rawalpindi Circuit House will be built for Rs. 1 billion, with the Infrastructure Development Authority of Punjab (IDAP) collaborating with the private sector to undertake the massive project.
As per the details, the building will occupy 24 Kanal of land and have at least five floors, covering 84,466 square feet.
Currently, the district’s administrative offices are spread across the city, with employees having to travel long distances for important meetings.
The circuit house will house the offices of 22 departments, including the commissioner, deputy commissioner, assistant commissioners, municipalities, and forests, under one roof.
Furthermore, the IDAP has invited applications from the private sector to participate in the construction of the Rawalpindi Circuit House, with interested parties having until April 7 to submit their applications.
Once completed, the circuit house is expected to offer modern amenities, making it a state-of-the-art facility for government employees and the public.
The project is expected to be a game-changer for Rawalpindi’s administrative setup, making it more efficient and accessible to citizens.
The officials claimed that the Rawalpindi Circuit House will provide a one-stop-shop for government services and improve the overall work environment for government employees.
