  17. asif says:

    Madam, i'm udc in def and recently federal govt has anounced in the upgradation letter that henceforth the qualifying of basic IT training course from PITB will be a precondition for promotion and newly appointment. So, may i know that the said training course we shall do at our end or our depart will direct us for this? your cooperation in this regard will be highly appreciated. please.

  18. jehan zeb shah says:

    I've heard that there is still some issue b/w Finance and Estab in adaptation of the up-gradation orders of Ministerial Posts and hence the AGPR is unable to sanction salaries as per new upgraded scales.................. Is it Right or any body can tell having some detail that why AGPR is not issuing salaries as per new upgraded scales despite the lapse of 90 days.

  19. Akhtar says:

    Some years ago the Federal Government up-graded and re-designated the post of Stenographer (BS-15) as Assistant Private Secretary (APS) (BS-16) and declared the post as Gazetted. Although, the basic qualification required for initial appointment of a Stenographer is intermediate. However, the Federal Government very enthusiastically declared the post of Assistant Private Secretary as a gazetted post and issued a circular that whosoever will be granted BS-16 be considered as a gazetted officer. Contrary to this, recently the Federal Government has up-graded the ''Post of Graduates'' i.e. the Post of Assistant from BS-14 to BS-16 and hesitating to notify the post as a gazetted post. As we know that Article 25 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan provides equal protection of law to all. Under this Article all the Assistants are entitled for the same benefits as had been given to the Stenographers and Assistant Private Secretaries of Federal Government. Besides, all the Provincial Governments have provided justice to their ministerial staff. The question arises whether the decisions of our Federal Government fulfill the relevant provisions of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan or otherwise??? If the answer is in negation who will safeguard the provisions of the Constitution ???

  20. Tahir says:

    I am a Senior LDC. Accordingly my scale after 16 years of service is 9.
    Federal Govt has upgraded clerical posts. Where is my benefit ? Should i remain in same grade even after upgradation? Whereas my LDC friends in provinces have been upgraded in 11 BPS.
    Is that justice???

  21. Baloch says:

    No doubt we are thankful to the Government for upgrading the clerical posts. But I wonder, really wonder that an Assistant of a province is in permanent 16 grade and is Gazetted and an Assistant of Federal is given 15 (only existing Assistants will be given time scale of 16 and will be non-Gazetted), I wonder a UDC of a province is upgraded in 14 while LDC in 11 BPS, whereas in Federal UDC is upgraded in 11 and LDC in 9.
    This is injustice which must be dealt with honesty.
    Why govt is not ending up the story of up-gradation by giving LDC 11, UDC 14 and Assistant 16 permanently. Have a big heart, PLEASE. We do not want to knock the doors of courts again.
    Moreover, in Sindh, The Assistant has been re-designated as Assistant Superintendent, which is a welcome and pleasing step by Sindh Govt. Assistants and other clerical staff must be happy now 🙂
    Can we expect this pleasure????

  22. Akhtar says:

    Listen me the basic qualification required for the initial appointment of an Assistant is Graduation, while the basic qualification required for initial appointment of a Stenographer is intermediate. The irony is that the Federal Government up-graded and re-designated the post of Stenographer as Assistant Private Secretary (BS-16) and declared the post as a Gazetted post. Presently, the Federal Government is reluctant to notify the post of Assistant as a Gazetted post. The thinking point is that as per the decision of Federal Government a person having intermediate can justify a Gazetted post while a Graduate can not. Although it is an admitted fact that 99% work of Sections and Branches is dealt by an Assistant and in so many Ministries and Divisions the work of Section officers is fully dealt by the Assistant while the Sections officers just play a role of signing authority. In autonomous bodies the assignments of Section officers are dealt by the Assistants which is an admitted fact. Hence, we request the Federal Government to kindly look into matter and provide justice to this suffering cadre in order to encourage them and to bring more and more efficiency in their official work.

    • jehanzeb shah says:

      Any body know about that why the Up gradation Order has not been implemented till date by AGPR.................. is there any problem

  23. Ali Khan says:

    Der Sir/Madam I would like to ask, whether this up-gradation of clerical post be implemented in CDA, as CDA has it's own criteria for up-gradation after some qualifying service. Waiting for reply and thanks in advance

  24. Farooq Dar says:

    I am assistant in pak army quetta, i want mutual transfer from quetta to any ware in punjab. If some one come to quttea plz contact me 03126224811 adnan wazir

  30. Akhtar says:

    We all the Assistants and Ministerial staff of Federal Government are highly indebted and thankful to Mr. Abdul Ghafoor Javed, Mr. Sajid Matloob and our colleagues of Parliament House for their untiring efforts for up-gradation. By grace of Allah Almighty and by dint of their struggle the dream of up-gradation of Assistants has turned into reality. Although the Federal Government has failed to redress the grievances of Assistants like the provincial Governments. However, we hope that in near future Federal Government will also rectify this unjust decision and prevailing discrimination, which has created a sense of deprivation among the employees of Federal Government. At the end I salute all those who contributed well in order to achieve their goal and i hope that in future too they will continue their struggle for the betterment of the down trodden employees of Pakistan.

    If a person is getting 19580 in BS-14 as basic pay, after revesion of 2016 pay scales.
    Then where will his basic pay be fixed in BS-16?

  43. shahid says:

    my first opinion above is wrong all present Assistant in B-14 will be allowed B-16 but post actually will be B-15 for new employees.

  44. shahid says:

    as per notification of Estb Div,10.8.2016 all the assistant bill be upgraded in B-15 not B-16
    only only time dispensation(mean all present assistant working in B-14) my opinion in as per notification the post of Assistant upgraded in B-15 for present employees not for all in future.The Correct position will clarify after issuance of notification of Finance Div,

  45. Akhtar says:

    moderation is enabled

  46. Akhtar says:

    Article 25 of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan provides equal protection of law to all, under this article all the ministerial staff of the Federal Government are entitled for the same benefits as has been given to the employees of Provincial Governments. Hence, the employees of Federal Government must be provided/ensured same opportunities of progress as has been provided to all the employees of Provincial Governments of Pakistan. However, this time Federal Government has proved to be very miser in this regard. Hence, it is requested that this discrimination may be redressed as soon as possible in order to rectify the the feelings of deprivation and financial exploitation of the Federal Government employees.
