  23. Attaullah Noonari · Edit

    Respected Madam,
    I have joined as Senior Auditor (BS-16), on regular basis in FBR, Govt. of Pakistan. The required degree for that post was Masters/Post graduate degree in various subjects. At that time i.e before appointment I have M.Sc (Hons) degree from Agriculture University. After appointment the HEC (UGC), Islamabad issue me a equivalence certificate M.Sc(Hons) from any Agri. University equal to M.Phil.
    Now my question is that weather I am eligible for advance increments? Plz advice.

  24. I acquired higher qualification viz. BA and LLB in the year 1993 and 1995 respectively. At that point of time I was working in pay scale 7 but i did not apply for advance increments. In the year 1997 I was appointed in pay scale 17. Even if the advance increments would have been allowed in the year 1995 it would certainly have been merged in the pay of scale 17 without giving me any benefit. Can I obtain advance increments from the 1997 instead of 1993 and 1995.

    Dear shumaila kamal

    According to my opinion this notification is valid for all technical and non technical jobs and technical and non technical qualifications as well because it is clearly mentioned in this notification.”on acquiring /possessing higher technical as well as non-technical qualification irrespective of the fact whether the employee concerned is employed against a technical post or a non-technical post.”

  41. Dear is it allowed for civil employees on technical posts .I joined federal government in 2009. On B.Sc basis now I have M.phill Degree. Can i get this.

  42. Employees who are enrolled before 01-12-2001 and done higher qualification as well as 01-12-2001 are entitled for advance increments.
