  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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 ???

  10. 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???

  11. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
    Can we expect this pleasure????

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Please go through the Memorandum of upgradation of Ministerial Staff it is clearly mentioned in para-2 that “shall be pre-condition both for promotion and initial appointment???

  15. As per office Memorandum of upgradation of Ministrial staff how can possible to implement the instruction/order given at Para-3 in which Establishment condition to qualify the test from National Information Technology Board both for initial appointment and promotion of these posts, because only one office of National Information and Technology Board is situated in Pakistan i.e. at Islamabad in the country? how can possible for the people of other cities or FGE those residing other cities of Pakistan to get training of MS word for the fresh appointment and in service Govt. employee to qualified the said training for the promotion???

  16. 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

  17. 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. Pakistan Zindabad.

  18. 2ndly guide wheather combined orders of upgradation of Assistant (from 14 to 16) will be issued and sent to AGPR for fixation of pay
    separate orders for each incumbent will be issued..??

  19. Kindly guide the steps to be taken for implementation of premature increment, if an assistant is upgraded from BS-14 to BS-16..??
    Weather the pay is firstly fixed from BS-14 to BS -15, then an increment is granted in the same scale (BS-15) and then it is fixed in BS-16
    The pay will be directly fixed from BS-14 to BS-16 and then an increment is given.

    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,

  27. 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.

  28. This is Pakistan, called Islami Jamhoria , All Provincial Governments including Azad Jammu and Kashmir Government has already upgraded their Junior Clerks and Senior Clerks from BPS-07 to 11 and BPS-9 to BPS-14, But our Federal Government is not provide justice to Federal Government Clerks.
