Punjab to Provide ‘Scooties’ to All Female Government Employees

punjab to Provide Scooties to All Female Government Employees

The Punjab government has made the decision to give scooters (motorcycles) to all female teachers, lady polio workers, women health workers, and working women in all government and semi-government institutions in the province.

During the upcoming fiscal year 2022–2023, these scooties will only be provided to female permanent staff. According to their work status, 160,000 female employees would receive scooters this year on a monthly payment schedule ranging from PKR 2,500 to PKR 3,000. Between August and November of this year, the first phase of the distribution of these scooters will be finished.

In August, prospective female employees can submit their applications; following that, review will start.

The Punjab government has set aside money in the provincial budget for the project, according to the Chief Minister Malik Abrar Ahmed’s advisor. He asserted that without women’s full engagement, no nation can thrive. When working from home, women must deal with major issues. Wagons and buses pose challenges for them. The cost of pick-up and delivery services has also increased. For this reason, the PML-N government in Punjab has decided to provide scooties to female employees. More scooters will be made available if there are more women.

Working women will gain from this project since they will be able to conveniently and safely commute to their offices from home.

Shafiq Bhalwalia and Basharat Iqbal Raja, leaders of the teachers’ unions, praised the decision and urged that male instructors also receive motorcycles in convenient payments. The provision of amenities for the workforce falls within the scope of the government.
