NAB's major achievements had been the recovery of Rs 342 /- billion of ill-gotten money of people at large which had been deposited in the national exchequer and not a single penny had been received by NAB officers. Chairman NAB Justice Javed Iqbal said NAB had rationalized its workload and timelines had been prescribed for efficient, effective and expeditious disposal of cases putting a maximum limit of 10 months-from complaint verification-to-inquiry-to-investigation and finally to a reference in Accountability Court.
NAB had filed 600 corruption references in Accountability Courts in the last 23 months which was a record achievement as investigation of mega and white collar crimes is very challenging task and it takes years. NAB on a regularly basis reviews its performance and also progress on ongoing inquiries and references. Due to this reason, the number of complaints had been doubled as compared to the same period of last year from Nov 2018 to Nov 2019.
