KP govt directed to complete recruitment process of employees in 6 months
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Friday directed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government to complete the recruitment process of employees in six months.
A two-member bench of the apex court comprising Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan heard the case.
During the course of proceedings, the court directed the provincial government to recruit all employees of BPS-11 and above through KP Public Service Commission.
The court also said the affected parties could be re-appointed by the commission.
The court said employees who did not fall under the KP Employment Regulations Act 2018 were not eligible to be made permanent. Until new recruits were in place, existing employees would continue to serve in those positions, it added.
The court also expressed annoyance over KP additional advocate general (AAG) for filing a time-barred petition.
The chief justice said the KP government had made a habit that every petition would be filed late. – APP
