CSS officers' induction in cantonments revived

ISLAMABAD, Oct 26: The government has revived the system of induction of Central Superior Services (CSS) officers in Cantonments along with restructuring of the Military Land and Cantonment (ML&C) group.

At a meeting held here on Thursday, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz expressed confidence that the revival and restructuring of Military Land and Cantonment would help provide better municipal facilities to people living in Cantonment areas.

The practice was discontinued by the present government a few years back causing resentment among career officers working in Cantonments.

According to an official handout, the prime minister said that the re-organisation and re-structuring would also address the impediments in delivering services to the people.

The meeting was informed that the revival of Military Land and Cantonment would ensure the automation of land record, better education and health facilities, clarity of building codes, better maintenance of land record, availability of clean drinking water, better sanitation system and transparency in collecting revenue.

It was also recommended that permanent absorption from officers of other groups who were already on deputation and were willing would be considered for induction into the ML&C group.

The restructuring of various departments being manned by officers of Military Land and Cantonment would ensure effective local government and good governance in Cantonment areas. Dawn
