Balochistan residents granted equal domicile status

High-Level Meeting Decides to Grant Equal Status to Generational Balochistan Residents by Eliminating Distinction in Domicile Certificates.

The consensus was developed during a joint consultative meeting of the representatives of parliamentary political parties regarding the formation, procedure, and legislation of local, domicile and PRC laws in Balochistan.

Parliamentary Secretary Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Science and Information Technology Dr Rubaba Khan Buledi chaired the meeting while members of the provincial legislative assembly, officers of law, local government, S&GAD and Advocate General office were also present.

The meeting discussed at length PRC issues in the context of the instructions of the Supreme Court and the High Court of Balochistan’s directives and the resolution of the Balochistan Assembly. Secretary Law and Parliamentary Affairs Abdul Saboor Kakar conducted a comprehensive briefing on the prevailing local certificate, domicile, and PRC laws, procedures, and regulations. During the session, he not only elucidated the existing framework but also provided a comparative analysis of similar laws in other provinces.

During the gathering, political party representatives voiced their demand for the reinstatement of the 1974 notification, which aimed to eliminate distinctions in the Permanent Residence Certificate (PRC).

Dr. Rubaba Khan Buledi, in her address, expressed deep concern over the unjust practice of labeling long-established families in Balochistan as settlers.
