The Cabinet Committee on Institutional Reforms has approved a set of proposals, including the proposal for renaming the existing Central Superior Services as the Central Services of Pakistan.
The cabinet committee has also approved several recommendations of the Task Force on Institutional Reforms, including a separate cadre of professionals such as engineers, doctors and foreign postings, and criteria for placement and promotions of officers in the future.
The ministerial panel also formed a subcommittee headed by the deputy chairman of the Planning Commission and comprising secretaries of establishment, law and finance divisions to suggest an implementation plan for formulation of separate cadres and framing service rules.
The committee considered all points of a summary submitted by the establishment division and took point-wise decisions in a meeting held last month. The cabinet committee agreed to the recommendations of the Institutional Reforms Cell.
The committee directed the establishment division to complete formulation of four career streams – administrative, economic, social and technical. The establishment division will report monthly progress to the cabinet committee, while the whole exercise will be completed in three months.
According to the approved proposals, future placement and postings would be based on the criteria which include nature of experience gained, expertise acquired, appraisal reports of the training institutes and dossier of performance evaluation reports.
