No. 4001(R)CS/2017 with MP No. 454/2019
Case filed by Mr. Akbar Ali PS (B-17) M/o Foreign Affairs VS Foreign Secretary, M/o Foreign Affairs Islamabad (Mst Bushra Bibi, Widow of Akbar Ali (Appellant) in person)
Before Qazi Khalid Ali, Chairman & Raja Hasan Abbas, Memeber FST
AS PER JUDGMENT
The instant appeal was filed seeking a direction to the respondents to consider him for promotion to BS-18 in terms of O.M of Establishment Division No. 1/9//80-R-2, dated 02-June-1983.
It is obvious that service in BS-16 and below would be counted as per given formula as part of service in BS-17 for the purpose of promotion. There is no restriction that counting of such service will be available only in a particular grade. Assertion of the Finance Division that in case of “Private Secretaries” the provisions of O.M> of 1983 are applicable for promotion to BS-19 only is not well founded. Para-I of the O.M. of Finance Division dated 23rd December 2011 has to be read in conjuction with the O.M. of Establishment Division dated 02-June-1983.
“We therefore agree with the contentions of the appellant, the appeal is accepted” The deceased appellant be considered for granting BS-18 from the date he completed five year service in BS-17 in accordance with the formula given in the O.M. Establishment Division of 1983, if he otherwise fulfilled the requisite conditions. The appeal is disposed of accordingly.
