As the construction activities on strategically important Diamer Bhasha Dam Project are picking up pace, the Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has also commenced the process for providing thousands of jobs to the people of Dimer and Gilgit Baltistan for poverty alleviation in the area and socio-economic uplift of the local populace.
WAPDA advertised as many as 124 vacancies ranging from Basic Pay Scale (BPS) 6 to 16, against which only the people belonging to District Diamer, Gilgit Baltistan will be recruited. Earlier, WAPDA also advertised 179 vacancies of BPS 14 to 20 and some 317 vacancies for security personnel.
