Success Story - Ahmad Wisal Khalil

From student to Administration Assistant

Ahmad Wisal Khalil has finally tasted the power of RTI. For over a year Khalil made rounds of the office of the Pakistan Institute of Community Ophthalmology Peshawar to get information about the merit lists of the post of Administration Assistant for which he had applied long time back.

A resident of Tehkal Bala needed the said documents for his court case and he got the relevant documents within the stipulated time.

(Pointing to RTI Application for the people like him, this piece of paper is like a weapon for the powerless to fight against the corrupt establishment, says Ahmed Wisal Khalil. The RTI Act has come a long awaited rain in a drought prone area. Today we tell the officials that if they don’t look at the problems of the people, we file an RTI query.)

He was forced to file a request when he was deprived of getting the merit list and finally filled an RTI and got it in weeks which helped him in getting a job on court directives.

Ahmad Wisal has assumed the charge of Administration Assistant (BPS-16) in Pakistan Institute of Community Ophthalmology on 21st December 2016.
