CDWP has a mandate to approve projects costing up to Rs10 billion and projects having a higher cost are sent to Ecnec, chaired by the finance adviser, for final approval. The road project in Balochistan is already nearing completion but its revised design awaits final approval due to serious deviation from the original design. Similarly, the CDWP returned the Gwadar-Ratodero road project worth Rs38 billion. It referred the Punjab Human Capital Investment project worth Rs52.8 billion to Ecnec for final approval. CDWP cleared the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Irrigated Agriculture Improvement project worth Rs30.1 billion and referred to Ecnec for approval.
