KARACHI: The Model Customs Collectorate (MCC) Appraisement has notified provisional regularization of 16 contract employees appointed under the Family Assistance Package in 2009.

These employees include three Examiners of Grade-14 who by the virtue of Supreme Court’s earlier order upgrading all Grade-14 employees to Grade-16, would automatically be upgraded to Grade-16, an official said.
