  1. Kindly tell me what is the policy or rule along with eligibility criteria for the recruitment on the basis of contingency/ daily wages for BPS- 17 and above in provincial govt departments.

  2. Salaam,
    I would like to know that if maximum age limit for a post of BS-19 in federal govt is 40+5, is there any further age relaxation for candidates belonging to Azad Kashmir?

    Secondly the service experience would be additional relaxation or not?

  3. Salams

    This is Muhammad Akber employee of Election Commission of Pakistan.
    I would like to know about the relaxation and fringe benefits in the service according to government Employee Rules as I’m appointed at Disabled Quota.

    Muhammad Akber
    Junior Asstt
    DEC – Kamber-Shahdadkot

  4. It seems Government wants to implement merit through this new policy but in past even these kind of policies were announced but very poorly implemented , lets hope for best this time .
