Training the bureaucratic officials is one thing but actually implementing what is being taught / learned is completely different

After all, how would they earn BRIBES, if everything becomes digitalized?

Land record of the whole country needs to be DIGITALIZED ASAP.

Pakistani officials as in corrupt bureaucrats? They will only look for kickbacks. The irony is that Pakistan produces millions of graduates and yet needs Chinese for everything

I have been saying that for last 10 years. Government has finally realized that they can cut 50% of their overhead by going to e-government.

Pakistan maybe producing thousands of graduate every years but still Chinese hand holding and helping in even simple tasks.

These guys might be analysing: is main corruption k Kia Kia tareeqy hosakty Hain. They will write a small book, and that book will be passed to whole hierarchy. I know them.

But the point you raised is absolutely valid.
