The newly established Management and Information System (MIS) was created at a total cost of Rs 95.898 million. The scheme, which was first introduced in the Nowshera and Abbottabad districts, would soon be extended to include all the other districts in the province.

Within the project scope, 50,938 new property units have been discovered in Abbottabad and Nowshera districts. The total number of property units in these areas has increased to 90,938 as a result. The rise in the number of property units has increased the demand for tax revenue. The demand in Nowshera has increased from Rs 69 million to Rs 123 million, and in Abbottabad, it has gone up from Rs 83 million to Rs 143 million.
