Order on Appeal No. 781-12/20 Syed Kausar Abbas Vs Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony

Secretary, Ministry of Religious Affairs was directed to submit compliance report to the commission describing current availability status of the following information on the web site as well as time-frame for publication of each missing information/record on web site within 7 working days of the receipt of this Order:

  1. Detailed budget of the public body; including proposed and actual expenditures, original or revised revenue targets, actual revenue, receipts, revision in the approved budget and the supplementary budget;
  2. performance reports, audit reports, evaluation reports, inquiry or investigative reports and other reports that have been finalized.

The commission observed that so far as the proactive disclosure of information under Section 5 (1) (i) of the Act is concerned, this commission has already held that an audit report becomes a public document once it is laid before Public Accounts Committee, (PAC) after the approval of the President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. It is not only the responsibility of the Auditor General of Pakistan to place on its web site each audit report once it is laid in the Public Accounts Committee, each federal public body should proactively publish through its web site all the audit paras if included in the audit report of a given year.
