PIA restructuring plan involves UK Civil Aviation Authority’s help in examination and training.
On Thursday, Dr. Husain, an advisor, demonstrates the insides and benefits of the UK CAA reforming strategy. This proposal is solely for Pakistan International Airlines and the Pakistani government. Currently, PIA is dependent on the government.
With the execution of this plan, the airlines will relish the freedom from loans and become a financially sustainable association. Moreover, Dr. Ishrat is linked to Institutional Reforms and Austerity as an advisor to the PM.
According to Brecorder.com, the above statement regarding the UK initiative was briefed during National Assembly Standing Committee on Law and Justice. Furthermore, IATA Consultancy has also recommended this strategy.
The UK CAA initiative is to benefit the airline and the government
The consultant in advance stated that the number of employees will reduce for efficiency. From 14,000 they will shrink to 7,000. The UK CAA plan suggests the outsourcing of duties like engineering and catering.
Besides, the reforms programme has condensed the Government entities as well. The classes of these entities are mainly three. The notified numbers are 10 constitutional bodies, 91 executive departments, and 206 autonomous bodies.
Furthermore, The UK Time News also pondered on the cabinet committee. It is linked with the reforms, in particular of the professional and educational training.
The prime focus is to restore the Federal Board of Revenue with three main categories. One is the end to end automation. Second is the reformation on an organizational as well as the functional basis. The third is to improve the HR department.
Also, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will automate the communication between tax collectors and payers.
The UK CAA itself is a legislative establishment that controls the units of civil aviation. The company regulates a number of responsibilities.
For instance, management of security protocols, equipment testing, safety schemes for foreign customers, and license allotting of pilots. It was formed in 1972 with main offices in Crawley and London.
The UK Time News also elaborates on the decline of PIA. It is happening for various years because of political deviousness, mismanagement, and discrimination.
The disasters like May 2020’s crash near Karachi are also worsening the reputation of this flag carrier. Even PIA is banned in different countries.
