P&DD, GoS - Planning and Development Department, Government of Sindh
 
About Us

Planning & Development Department, Government of Sindh came into existence on 1st July 1970 with a staff of 82 including gazetted and non-gazetted personnel. This number continued to expand with increasing challenges and responsibilities. At present, the Department is manned by about 200 officers and staff working in various technical and administration section. The Department plays a vital role in the process of socio-economic development of the Province. In an economy where public and private sectors co-exist, development proceeds  along   a well   charted   course with targets of


growth   emanating   from direct   investment by both public and private   sectors. This requires   careful identification   and selection of projects for various   nation building departments and providing direction for

private sector investment through incentives and appropriate monetary, fiscal and trade policies. Designing policies for the private sector is primarily a federal subject and the role of Planning and Development Department is mainly confined to the public sector development. Plan formulation, identified as development projects for each sector in accordance with targets of growth as envisioned in the National Plan, is the main function of the Department.
