Tehsil Municipal Administration Jhelum
Message From Tehsil Nazim

The present shape of Local Government System is the vision of General Pervaiz Musharaf, President of Pakistan with the purpose to devolve the powers from upper level to lower level. I took over the charge of Tehsil Nazim Jhelum on 17th October, 2005 and was faced with the shortage of staff at Tehsil Municipal Administration. It was a challenge to work with limited staff keeping in mind the wide range of responsibilities entrusted to TMA under the new local body system. However I believe that every challenge is an opportunity in disguise that can bring the best out of people faced with it. My challenge was to make TMA Jhelum a vibrant and viable organization that could provide quality municipal services to the citizens of Jhelum. Since primary role of TMA is to provide basic amenities to the inhabitants of Tehsil Jhelum, I explored every opportunity to raise funds for the TMA whether it be from own sources or by seeking grants from external agencies. Likewise, a water supply scheme valued at Rs. 9 crore was initiated with the technical and financial assistance of Punjab Development Fund Company (PMDFC).  Following works are being carried out under this scheme:-

1.    17 new tubewells are being established in the city.

2.    Construction of two water tanks having a capacity of 1 lac gallon each.

3.   Construction of storm water drain as joint venture with Rs.4 crore.

In addition to the above, following machinery has been procured to provide better facilities to the general public.

1.   Tractor Massy Ferguson                                 No.6

2.   Loader Tractor                                                   No.2

3.   Water Pumps to drain out the rainy water    No.6

I assure the citizens of Tehsil Jhelum that I will continue my efforts to come up to their expectations with the help of Almighty ALLAH and will not leave any stone unturned till all their grievances and problems are redressed.  I request all of you to send your suggestions to bring the city at par with developed cities.

May ALLAH bless you with happiness.
