The promotion of a large number of officers from the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), which is frequently regarded as the most powerful cadre of the civil service, appears to have been delayed by the outgoing government in its haste to promote a few bureaucrats, according to a story in the Dawn.
On Saturday, the establishment division notified the promotion of 26 officers to grade 20, against 243 vacant positions in this grade, Dawn reported citing sources.
They said that the division had finalised a panel of 72 grade 18 officers to be considered for promotion, the Dawn reported.
The outgoing government had convened the Central Selection Board (CSB) a few days before the dissolution of the National Assembly and appointed the chairman of the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) on July 19.
