Promotion of govt officers now linked to performance: Dr. Firdous
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Monday that Prime Minister Imran Khan has fulfilled the promise of reforms in civil services as promised in the manifesto of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf.

In a tweet, she said the  reforms in Civil Service would prove a milestone in  improving its performance as  50-year-old system had become obsolete.

Dr Firdous  said this change would encourage capable officers and discourage the inefficient. She said that in future promotion of officers would  be done on merit and not by serving the interests of any political family as was the tradition in the past. She said that in future, criteria for promotion would be hard work, capability and resolution of people’s problems.

She said that Prime Minister has taken steps to remove all hurdles in providing relief to the masses. She said that now the officers would get promotions on the basis of performance. She said that these changes were brought in Section 13 of Civil  Services Act 1973. – APP
