Government of the Pakistan Cabinet Secretariat Establishment Division, Islamabad has issued Notification No. 1/13/96-R-6 dated 7th May 2014 in connection with Appeal under Section-4 of the Service Tribunal Act 1973. This Notification relates to Uniform Time Scale Promotion Policy for Civil Servants of the Federal Government of Pakistan. The summary of this Notification is as under:
The employees working in various Divisions/Departments/Ministries are of the view that the Up-Gradation of the posts means the automatic up gradation of the incumbents. The concept of the employees is wrong. The real concept of the Up-gradation is that the abolition of the previous posts and the creation of the new posts in the higher pay scales.
It has been observed that the employees who are not promoted since long time are inspired by the up-gradation of the other posts and hence they are aspired for the up-gradation of their posts. Several Employees of various departments who were not covered under up-gradation, filed writ petitions in the courts for the up-gradation of their posts. Due to the number of cases of up-gradation referred by the courts the work load the Establishment Division has been increased on a large scale.
To decrease the work load, the Establishment Division is of the view that the Finance Division may constitute a committee consisting of experts to formulate a Uniform Time Scale Promotion Policy that be applicable on all the Federal Govt Employees.
