KARACHI: Following recent promotions of Grade-19 officer of Pakistan Customs Service in Grade-20, several senior officers are going to attend their NIPA course.
The officers leaving for NIPA Karachi include Dr. Fareed Iqbal Qureshi, Yaqoob Mako, SAeed Akram and Zaiba Bashir while officers going to NIPA Lahore include Hamid Ali, Seema Bukhari, Ali Raza and Saeed Jadoon.
It may be mentioned here that 19 officers were surprisingly promoted to Grade-20 quite recently, but very senior and deserving officers of Grade-19 could not be upgraded as they did not have their staff course i.e. NIPA course.
Now, the above mentioned officers will be eligible for promotion as soon as the review board convenes.
It was also learnt that FBR would soon notify transfers and postings to fill the positions that would fall vacant as the officers are going to NIPA.
