  1. Section 10(i) and the Section 12(b) of Sindh Sevanst (Probation, Confirmation n& Senioty Rules 1975 may be read for ready reference)

“12(b) a person appointed by transfer on his own request shall rank junior to all other persons appointed before him on the regular basis and the persons appointed with him on the same batch or on the same day by promotion or initial recruitment”

  1. Seniority is determined on the basis of the date of regularization. Sometimes, the date of appointment and regulation is different; in this case, the date of regularization will be the basis for determining seniority.
