ISLAMABAD – The interior ministry has so far allowed around two dozen international non-government organisations (INGOs) to operate in Pakistan under a new policy of the federal government announced in October last year.
Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali yesterday chaired a meeting which allowed some more INGOs to work in the country, raising the number of international organisations which have been given permission to operate to 25, a ministry statement said.
According to official figures, as many as 131 INGOs have applied with the ministry for fresh registration under the new policy to register.
