Federal Ombudsman Ejaz Ahmad Qureshi says that the institution is planning to establish more offices in far flung areas including Gilgit Baltistan, interior Sindh and Balochistan to provide assistance to needy people.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Monday, he said the federal institution has addressed over one hundred thousand complaints last year while 1.7 million complaints have been resolved since its inception.

He said under a new initiative, this institution is also offering to address informal complaints and disputes to reduce the burden on courts.
