Government of the Punjab, Services & General Administration Department (Regulation Wing) has issued Notification No. SOR-III(S&GAD)2-2/12(PI) dated 12-10-2017 in connection with Guidelines for Promotion Employees of BPS-01 to BPS-04 as Junior Clerk . Detail is as under:
Reference your letter No.12157/E.I. dated 25.09.2017 on the subject noted above.
- The Regulations Wing, S&GAD has examined the matter and it is observed that revised qualification made through notification dated 04.04.2016 needs not to be made applicable while making promotion under 20% quota amongst the employees of BS-1 to 4 but such employees are to be considered on the basis of qualification prescribed in relevant service rules. Furthermore, if in the method of recruitment for post of Junior Clerk of the existing service rules of School Education Department, there is mention that employees in BS-1 to 4 should have the qualification meant for initial recruitment, then they cannot be considered against the post of Junior Clerk on the basis of Matriculation. However, if there is no condition for having the qualification meant for initial recruitment or specifically mentioned “Matriculation”, then they may be considered for promotion against the post of Junior Clerk under 20% quota unless the service rules are amended.
- For further necessary action may be taken accordingly.
Special thanks to Mr. Naseer Hussain for sending the copy of the Guidelines for Promotion Employees of BPS-01 to BPS-04 as Junior Clerk.
