KARACHI, Feb 10: The Sindh government has issued a notification terminating the services of its 43 re-employed / appointed officials on a contract basis with immediate effect. The services of these officers, who are among some 93 officers working on a contract basis after retirement, were dispensed with in compliance with a directive of the Supreme Court.
The apex court last month directed the federal and provincial governments that cases of all re-employed/ contractual appointees be reviewed in the light of the Civil Servants Act and the Estacode — the volume of statues, policies, office memorandums etc and regulating civil bureaucracy.
The civil servants act clearly states that a retired civil servant shall not be re-employed unless such re-employment is necessary in the public interest while the Estacode conditioned reemployment to ensure 1: Non-availability of suitably qualified or experienced officers to replace the retiring officer. 2: The officer is highly competent person with distinction in his profession. 3: Re-employment does not cause a promotion block and 4: Retention of the retiring officer for a specified period is in the public interest.
