Government of Pakistan, Cabinet Secretariat Establishment Division issued a Notification on 28-08-2023 in connection with the Revision Recruitment Rules for Various Federal Posts. The detail of said notification in same is as under;
The undersigned is directed to refer to this division o.m of even number dated 02-05-2019 (Annwx-1) on the subject noted above and to state that the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) has observed that the majority of the ministries/divisions/departments have so far not complied with the advice given in the said o.m and requisition are they still being sent to FPSC, in ascendance with the recruitment rules that have become rather outdated.
The FPSC has noted a significant challenge in the requisition process, specifically related to recruitment rules that merely state the qualification as “Graduation” without specifying whether it pertains to a two-year associated degree or a four-year degree program, which is now commonly adopted by most universities. The urgency to address this issue has arisen due to its frequent occurrence in various recruitment cases. In light of the above, all ministries/divisions/departments are advised as follows:
- No requisition should be sent to FPSC that reflects the word “graduation” as a qualification without clarifying where it refers to 02 years or 04 years’ academic degree.
- The advice already circulated by the divisions O.M of even number dated 02-05-2019 may be complied with within three months.
