Dear All,

We are writing to you because this is not a usual consultancy opportunity. It is a big opportunity, which only consultancy firms would be able to manage. Hence, we think it should be posted separately so that it does not get lost in the usual lists.

Here is a brief introduction received from Muslim Hands:

Muslim Hands- UK intends to sign framework agreement for three years, with a selected consultant/ consulting firm, who is willing to work as a remote support to our HIPD department across several countries including UK, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Myanmar, and the list may add a few more countries in Asia/ Africa depending upon the funding situation as we move on with our new global strategy. In the recent months due to social restrictions and smaller office hours, we are interested in working with a reliable, self-starter, and experienced consultant, who can manage her/his/ their own logistics and administrative support requirements without stretching / counting on our logistics services.

For more information, please visit this link: Consultancy Announcement by Muslim Hands

All the best

Regards,

Team Pak NGOs

Dear Colleagues

 

I am reaching you out for two queries if you could help. 


  • First is linked to the NGOs registered under Societies Act of 1860 with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT). Is anyone aware of the process called de-registration or re- registration of NGOs in ICT?

 

  • How are we planning to engage with the legislators on the ICT Charities, Registration, Regulation and Facilitation Bill 2021 that has been passed by the National Assembly and under discussion at the Senate of Pakistan now? 

 

Any information on these queries would be of great help.


Regards 

Babar Bashir

As per my study and knowledge, currently, only the organizations which are registered as Trusts under Trust Act 1882 are now required to be re-registered/freshly registered as per the provision of new ICT Trust Act 2020 (for ICT registered Trusts) and under respective provincial Trust Acts 2020 (for Trusts registered in each province).

ICT Charities, Registration, Regulation and Facilitation Bill 2021 is an effort to update the outdated Voluntary Social WelfareAgencies (Registration and Control) Ordinance1961 just as they did with Trust Acts. Another reason is to update the Govt. records and digitize the NGO registers. 

However, the new registration portals are in violation of laws because laws have not demanded so much details as these registration portal demands, for example Trust Registration Portal demands Personal details of Author, Trustees & their dependents including details of movable, immovable properties, detail of bank accounts etc. With these deep personal details, it is not possible for NGOs to work because no one volunteer as Trustee or member of the NGO on risk of so much personal information. I am attaching screenshot of the Trust registration portal which requires personal detail of Trustees. NGO need to discuss these practical issues with relevant authorities.

Dear Colleagues ( Aqsa, Aftab, Idrees Khattak ) 

I am very thankful to you for responding to my queries and sharing your experience.  

Regarding my query on the denotification and re-registration of NGOs under the Societies Act of 1860 in Islamabad, it's been shared by some members that more than 400 NGOs were denotified last year on a very baseless grounds, like they were  not submitting the required  documents to the registrar's office while  the fact was they were complying to the requirements.  Some were re-notified afterwards but many were not, rather they are being asked for new registration or re- registration. 

I suggest through this forum, we should raise a collective voice on this issue with the Registrar Office ICT. Colleagues with legal backgrounds can also guide us, how we should proceed. 

Regarding the ICT Charities, Registration, Regulation and Facilitation Bill 2021,  some of the friends shared that once enacted this Act will be applicable to the Trusts only , while others assessment is this covers all Non Profit Organizations (NPOs).  I think this is high time that we engage with Legislators and share our input on this new legislation that can affect many of us. 
The copy of the ICT Charities Bill is attached. 

I look  forward to your thoughts. 

Best regards

Babar
