KARACHI: The Establishment Division’s High Power Board (HPB) is scheduled to be convened on November 10, 2018 to consider promotions of BS-21 officers into BS-22. Prime Minister Imran Khan will chair the meeting to be held at PM Secretariat in Islamabad.
The HPB meeting is being held on the instructions of Supreme Court of Pakistan as several officers of Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS) had approached the apex court expressing reservations on the nominations of officers for the promotion in the top grade. However, there has been no confusion regarding nominations of officers of other groups.
It was also known that the case of Shaukat Ali (Member FBR) has been deferred as he is facing several inquiries by NAB and the department itself. As per the seniority criteria BS-21 officers of Customs Group Javed Ghani and Zahid Khokhar tops the list for promotion into BS-22.
The notification regarding promotion of BS-21 officers into BS-22 will be notified in a couple of days after the HPB meeting.
