The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has approved a ‘supplementary grant’ worth Rs1.66 billion to ‘upgrade’ a Special Telecom Monitoring Project at the directorate of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), according to a press release by the Press Information Department (PID).
A Special Education School will also be constructed at the Defence Complex in Islamabad, with the additional funds that the ECC has approved of up to Rs 500 million.
The proposals for the ‘technical supplementary grants’ were moved by the defence division, the press release said.
The committee has also instructed the ministry of national security and research to ensure procurement of wheat as per 8.25 million tonnes target set for the public sector this year.
The ISI is the premier intelligence agency of Pakistan, operationally responsible for gathering, processing and analysing national security information from around the world.
It is currently headed by General Faiz Hameed.
