Lahore, Pakistan – The caretaker government of Punjab has announced a 15% quota in new residential plots for media workers, including journalists, photographers and cameramen.

CM Naqvi said this step is being taken after journalists across Punjab consistently raised the issue of lack of housing facilities. He acknowledged that many media workers lead modest lives and struggle to buy or build houses.

“Providing residential plots to our fellow journalists has been a long-standing demand that we are now fulfilling,” the chief minister said. He described it as an “innovative step” to facilitate media workers who play an important role in society.
