Dr. Fehmida expressed happiness over the increase in revenue, which was attained from its own sources over the last 7 months (from July 2019 to January 2020).

Income collected from the swimming pool, hostel and ground hall and membership charges contributed big time to the improved figure. In 2018-19, the total income generation was Rs. 9.5 million, and later this number increased to Rs. 17.5 million

She applauded the efforts of PSB’s team and said that there is still a lot of potential. More improvements can be made by upgrading the sports complex.

It was decided that all employees of Grade-17 and above, who have crossed their medical allowance ceiling, will need to refund the extra amount. A committee was also formed to supervise the entire process.

Members of the executive committee expressed their concern over the elections of the Pakistan Olympic Association (POA), labeling it ‘unjust’ and ‘non-transparent’.

Dr. Fehmida said that these practices were harming the overall sports environment in Pakistan. The minister is of the view that maximum efforts must be made to make the sports environment more positive.
