KARACHI: In order to encourage officers joining the mandatory management courses, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has adopted this policy to transfer officers who avoided the management courses.

An official said that a number of officers used to avoid the management courses just to remain stick to their existing ‘lucrative’ postings, which resulted in lapse of promotion vacancy in the group while the promotions of junior officers also delayed.

In a recent instance, FBR has transferred Manzoor Memon from the office of Collector Appraisement East to the post of Director Customs Valuation. Memon was nominated for National Management Course (NMC), which started on August 10, 2015 but he did not join the course. Sources said that policy guidelines in this regard would be issued soon.

Meanwhile, the Establishment Division has notified nominations of BS-19 officers for 18th Senior Management Course (SMC).

The BS-19 officers of Pakistan Customs Service nominated for the course include Ms Samina Tasleem Zohra, Ms Mehnaz Bhaur, Feroz Alam Junejo, Sadiqullah Khan, Mumtaz Ali Khoso, Mohammad Mohsin Rafiq, Irfan Javed, Syed Asad Raza Rizvi and Ms Qurat-ul-Ain Dogar.
