Islamabad - Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has been running without its managing director (MD) for the last several months.

Talking to APP, an official said, “Things have been finalised in this regard and will be disclosed soon.” He agreed to the fact that the absence of head would affect the working of the department largely.

However, he said that the board meeting was to be held on second week of July for nomination of new managing director which was postponed due to certain reasons. Similarly, he informed that with the allocation of special grant by Cabinet in June this year, the PTDC has paid outstanding salaries to their staff.

“The Cabinet had allocated a special grant of Rs120 million to the PTDC for clearance of dues to the staff and other liabilities,” he added.
