Federal Public Service Commission merit failure
FPSC has failed to deliver on merit so far
Islamabad: The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC), a
constitutional body established to uphold merit, is unfortunately far
behind from discharging its prime responsibility to finalise
high-profiled appointments in public departments.
principle of justice delayed justice denied applies to the FPSC with
its action of keeping pending four Grade-18 appointments in the
Ministry of Information Technology and its subordinate departments for
the last more than two years," sources said.
the FPSC, working without a chairman since March 30, 2009, made a
single appointment against five posts till now despite starting the
procedure from January 2007 whereas four have been left in a state of
uncertainty, they added.
According to the information, the
Ministry of Information Technology had to induct five system analysts
into the Pakistan Computer Bureau (PCB) taking one each from the
Punjab, Sindh, the NWFP, Balochistan, the Northern Areas and the AJK.
Akram has been appointed under case No.4-150/2007-R (18/2007) and
others from Sindh, the Punjab, Balochistan and AJK-NA are still waiting
despite the NWFP quota was filled in January 2009 on the nomination of
Sarwat Habib, Director (FS).
"The commission should have
inducted all the five instead of making appointment from the NWFP or
should have held the same case till decision on all those on the merit
list," FPSC officials and victims said.
FPSC Secretary Shaukat
Hayat Durrani accompanied by a director concerned denied the
charges.About delayed action in the case of four members and induction
of one person on the quota of the NWFP, they said the commission had
dispatched a letter to the PCB, seeking its opinion as to whether these
also meet the required training period.
The FPSC secretary said
the commission had nothing like discrimination on these appointments.
"We have neither withdrawn nor are we taking fresh interviews for these
vacant posts as we are to induct from those short-listed." The group
consisting of the FPSC's own officials further said the commission had
become selective in inducting its favourites, particularly in the case
of computer analysts.
