    Good decision
    and a way to gather voters in coming election

  9. Muhammad. Faheem says:

    I think these rates will be revised in the Budget 2018-2019.. this is the meaning i get from the letter.. Ministry of housing will resubmit the summary before the next budget.. Dear Shumaila please share you thoughts on this.

  10. Imran Ashraf says:

    It means no increase till June 30, 2018. In short the hiring rates will be revised after almost 4 years. Hiring rates if increased 50 %, then actually Govt has increased the rates by almost 33%. By saving one year payment the Govt will announce the huge increase of 50%. This is called Accounting :).

  11. Abdul Qadir Shaikh says:
