The meeting of the CDWP talked about the first revised project of the Greater Karachi Bulk Water Supply Scheme K-IV 650 million gallons per day, which is now called K-IV (MGD). At the cost of Rs191.194 billion, the project was put forward by the Ministry of Water. After much thought, the CDWP recommended that the project be sent to Ecnec for more consideration.

260 MGD of water at the cost of Rs126bn was recommended for the project. Before the project was sent to Ecnec, a committee was set up to deal with issues.

PC deputy chairman: There was a lot of water shortage in Karachi, so the project had to be done quickly.

The CDWP approved a project worth $528.383 million. The money will set up safe blood transfusion services in the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT). The project is supposed to be paid for with money from the Public Sector Development Program and other countries.

Its main goal is to build a high-tech Regional Blood Center (RBC) in Islamabad to provide safe blood and blood products to the linked blood banks of the ICT in Islamabad. Putting hospital blood banks under RBC 3 Islamabad to supply safe blood products eliminated duplication of services, made things more efficient, and cut costs. More people will donate blood without getting paid for it in this project, and blood and blood products will be used in the right way.

The CDWP also agreed to two Position Papers (PP) worth Rs3.176bn at the meeting. The first PP came from the Ministry of Federal Education and cost Rs1.253 billion. It was used to set up the Directorate General of Religious Education. The second PP came from the Ministry of Information Technology and cost Rs1.922bn for Cyber Security for Digital Pakistan Phase-1 ICT, the first part of the project.
