Our Charter

The establishment of the Mohtasib Sindh (Provincial Ombudsman Sindh) took place through the passage of  Sindh Act No. 1 of 1992 (Establishment of the Office of Ombudsman for the Province of Sindh Act, 1991).

The Order defines an 'Agency' as a Ministry, Division, Commission or office of the Government of Sindh or a statutory body, corporation or other institution established or controlled by the Government of Sindh but does not include the Sindh High Court.
The Order further defines 'Maladministration' to include:

(i) a decision, process, recommendation, act of omission or commission which:

(a) is contrary to law, rules or regulations or is a departure from established practice or procedure, unless it is bona fide and for valid reasons; or
