Government of the Sindh Finance Department has issued Notification No. FD(SR-IV)2-35/2014 dated 06-01-2015 in connection with Upgradation of the Post of Superintendent in Sindh from BPS-16 to BPS-17.
Upgradation of the Post of Superintendent in Sindh
According to this Notification the post of Superintendent has been upgraded from BPS-16 (10000-800-34000) to BPS-17 (16000-1200-40000) with effect from 1st January 2015.
The pay of the existing incumbents of the post shall be fixed in higher pay scales at a stage next above the pay in the lower pay scale.
The expenditures incurred on the upgradation of the posts shall be borne by the respective Administrative Department from their existing budgetary allocation for the financial year 2014-2015.
Whether the Post of Superintendent in Sindh is Upgraded or Given Next Higher Time Scale?
In the copy of the Notification of Upgradation of Superintendent in Sindh, there is no word of Time Scale has been used. And at all the places the word upgradation is used. It means that the post is upgraded not given next higher time scale.
If the post is upgraded then why there is allowed only the next stage of the higher scale for the purpose of fixation? It is a question mark that needs your comments to clarify the same situation.
