ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Education, Professional Training, National Heritage and Culture Shafqat Mahmood presided over the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Institutional Reforms (CCIR) at the Cabinet Division in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The Secretary Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) gave a detailed briefing on major functions, modes of recruitment, redressal of grievances and status of unfilled vacancies to the Cabinet Committee on Institutional Reforms.
The federal minister remarked that the general recruitment process of vacant posts of different ministries and divisions, apart from recruitment through CSS, was delayed for years which needs an immediate reform to do the same within six months.
Shafqat Mahmood observed that 70 percent workload of FPSC is due to 16 grade recruitment by FPSC which needs to be reviewed.
The minister directed the Secretary FPSC to send a proposal to the Establishment Division and CCIR to do the recruitment of 16 grade by the Ministry/Division concerned itself and FPSC will conduct the recruitment process from 17 grade and above. For this purpose, the ordinance of FPSC would be amended.
The Evacuee Trust Property Board gave a briefing to the Cabinet Committee on Institutional Reforms about the implementation status on the recommendations of the Prime Minister’s Task Force on ETPB.
The ETPB could not provide the necessary details to the committee about the exact record of evacuee trust land’s encroachment, retrieval of land from Qabza Mafia, accurate record of barren land and agrarian land, land-related court cases, number of orphanages and schools being run by the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB).
The minister directed the ETPB to come up with all necessary records and preparedness in the next meeting. He also sought the justification of schools being run by the ETPB in the next meeting.
