Copyright for presentation of public documents

All public documents - laws, notifications, orders - presented here are derived from significant efforts ranging from obtaining the documents, and
(i) scanning and converting scanned images to text, or
(ii) transcribing from a hard copy,
then to our internal data storage format, and finally to web presentation mark-up using various software techniques.

Although the text is in the public domain, we reserve the right to the layout and presentation. Reproduction without our permission is prohibited.


All material is provided 'as-is'. No responsibility is taken for any potential inaccuracies and/or errors in the text, and any damages that are incurred through the use of this material.

Although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, there are probably errors lurking about. Users are requested to let us know of any errors they may find.

All material on this website is presented purely as a free service, and has been since 1995. We are aware of the recent issuance of The Publication of Laws of Pakistan (Regulation) Ordinance, 2015 (VIII of 2015), and we are making the utmost efforts to comply with the requirements of that ordinance and the associated rules. The Government of Pakistan has begun a concerted effort to publish legislative documents at, which we believe is a positive step, the earlier absence of which was one of the main motivations for our efforts.


Over the years, we have received help from a number of people in obtaining documents. We have mentioned such help along with the documents.

We especially would like to thank the late Mr. Abdul Hameed Cheema, Barrister-at-Law, who took a keen interest in our work and helped us fill a lot of holes in our collection. May his soul rest in peace.
