ISLAMABAD: The Central Selection Board (CSB) on Tuesday started deliberations upon cases of over 450 officers for promotion in BS-20 and BS-21 grades.

The CSB in its consecutive meetings from Sept 28 to 30 will consider the promotion cases of officers in different service cadres, including Pakistan Adminis­trative Service (PAS), Secre­tariat Group, Pakistan Audit and Accounts Service, Pos­tal Group, Foreign Service of Pakistan, Pakistan Cus­toms Service, Inland Reve­nue Service, Information Group, Commerce and Trade Group, Police Service of Pakistan, Railways and Mili­tary Land and Cantonment.

The board will also consider cases of four deputy directors general in BS-20 of the Inter-Services Intelli­gence for the position of director general in BS-21 and 12 directors for the vacant posts of deputy directors general.

The CSB is also scheduled to examine cases of seven Intelli­gence Bureau officers for the posts of joint directors general and 18 IB officers for the posts of deputy directors general.

Sources said since the prime minister-led High-Powered Selection Board (HPSB) had delayed to consider the cases of BS-21 officers for promotion in BS-22, less vacancies were left in BS-21 grade and subsequently in BS-20.

Last month, Prime Minister Imran Khan through a tweet had justified the delay in convening the meeting of the HPSB. He had tweeted: “Under Chairmanship of PM, a high-powered Board sits to decide promotions of bureaucrats from BPS 21 to 22. This Board mtg has been postponed for a couple of months bec I am scrutinising actual performance of these officers on the ground beyond routine performance assessments.”
