2002 to 2023: Govt makes Toshakhana record public

Here is the entire record made public:

However, some fields of 'assessed value' and 'retention cost' were labelled to be 'in process' from November 2022.

Established in 1974, the Tosha­khana is a department under the administrative control of the Cabinet Division and stores precious gifts given to rulers, parliamentarians, bureaucrats, and officials by heads of other governments and states and foreign dignitaries.

According to Toshakhana rules, gifts/presents and other such materials received by persons to whom these rules apply shall be reported to the Cabinet Division.

Prominent among those whose details have been made public include incumbent Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, President Dr Arif Alvi, former president Pervez Musharraf, former prime ministers Shaukat Aziz, Yousuf Raza Gilani, Raja Pervez Ashraf, Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan.

According to the record, the present government received 59 gifts in 2023. Last year, 224 gifts were received in the Toshakhana, while 116 were received in 2021.

Taking or buying gifts by the ministers makes obvious sense, but a list of civil servants, personal secretaries, maids, etc., buying these gifts absolutely doesn't make any sense, or maybe the civil raj holds a Sunday bazaar of gifts given by other countries in good faith, but all and sundry greedy ones can buy these gifts at concessionary rates. Shame on these low-moral beings.

Shame on you all political party, minister and bureaucrats, our country faced continuously crises and drop down their value but you guys take expensive gifts free of cost, plus your monthly income is up to 1Million. You can easily buy all items but no. just because of lavish life you empty the treasure of country and all common people wandering on street with zero income and no money to eat even no house to sleep. shame on you.

very unfortunate nation, selecting Dakoos and Thieves by votes. evn the Genrals of army proved so meen with no dignity and selling thier pride for tosha khana gifts. i as a pakistani felt ashamed when i listen to MOODI interview, when he told that all gifts given to him were donated for the education of poor, arphan girls of india. shame for paki rulers generals beurocrats.

Stop the word "toshakhana". This is gift to the people of Pakistan and should be put in Country's "Khazana" or auctioned openly in USD and put in the government's coffers.
