Decision Regarding Regularization of Contractual Employees by Khursheed Shah Committee in PPPP Tenure has been issued in connection with Intra court appeal in Islamabad High Court.
The plain reading of the notification shows that the terms of Reference of the Committee are extensive and provide an opportunity to the employers as well as the employees to present their cases before it and the Committee shall examine each case on merits. It is also pertinent to mention that the notification has been issued pursuant to an order passed by this Court in Writ Petition No.1073 and 965 of 2013. We have been informed that the said judgment has attained finality as the august Supreme Court has refused leave. The matter relates to a policy owned by Federal Government and, therefore, beyond the pale of jurisdiction of the Court.
In view of above, the instant appeal as well as all the appeals are allowed and the impugned judgment dated 29.05.2014 passed in Writ Petition No.1863/2013 is set aside and all the Government and Semi Government Departments/Government Agencies/Statutory Corporations are directed to approach the Committee for regularization of the employees who fulfill the criteria as laid down in OM No.10/30/2008-R-II dated 29.08.2008 and each case shall be examined on its own merits after giving an opportunity of hearing to the parties.
