The University of Karachi has approved awarding a PhD degree to the metropolitan commissioner of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, Dr Syed Saifur Rehman, for his research titled ‘The Role of District Administration in Health Care Management’.

Dr Rehman, a grade-20 officer of the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), had conducted research on the special subject of controlling and eliminating deadly diseases like the polio virus.
