Hafiz Hafeez ur Rehman,
Chief Minister

The Department of Local Government & Rural Development oversees the operation and development of the local government system and provides the policy framework within which local authorities work and deliver public services. I am hopeful that the LG&RD will extend its services to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan under Local Government Act 2014. In this regard, the initiation of the official website of LG&RD department is a milestone in order to bridge government authorities and local public. I personally encourage the general public to visit this website to share their valuable suggestions and contribute to the development agenda of Government of Gilgit Baltistan.
