Pakistan bans state funded medical travel


The ban has come into place with immediate effect, as the executive order does not need any new law passed.

The Cabinet Division has issued a notification confirming that it applies to federal secretaries and divisional in-charge(s) of different ministries.

This action has been taken as part of a new austerity drive and as part of Khan’s attack on endemic state corruption and his plans to introduce a welfare state.

Khan is on a mission to reform the government and has already banned discretionary funds, increased working hours at government offices, sold off the government's bulletproof cars and is seeking ways to get the rich to pay taxes.
