The undersigned to refer to Establishment Division O.M No. 1/13/96-R-6 dated 12-04-2021 and refer to the Division O.M. No. F.9(7)R-1/2014/2021-66 dated 26-02-2021 on the subject noted above and to say that the following may please be clarified:-
- In para-3 of this Division’s O, M noted above, it was requested that Establishment Division may examine the proposal from the administrative/technical feasibility point of view. If such a study was carried out, it may be shared with Finance Division. it may be clarified if the M.S Wing of Establishment Division has found the proposed up-gradation feasible.
- Finance Division would like to know the views of M.S Wing Specifically with reference to the up-gradation of the Post of Superintendent to BS-17 as the superintendent is currently reporting to the section officer who is also in BS-17. So how the core policy handing unit in the Secretariat would function optimally in an arrangement where both the section Office and Superintendent will be BS-17.
- Further as per para-5 of the Establishment Division O.M. dated 12-04-2021 in which Finance Division was requested to initiate a Summary for the Prime Minister for approval of up-gradation of posts from BPS-1 to BPS-16 on the analogy of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, it is requested that reason/rule to initiate a Summary for the Prime Minister may please be shared as the current policy vests the up-gradation of BS 01-19 with the Secretariat Establishment and Finance. Also if to all a summary is required to be initiated, would it not be more feasible that Establishment Division, do so as the subject of upgradation rests with Establishment Division.
