  2. Hay colleagues, AOA, It seems that Estt. and Finance division does not know that in attached departments no post of PS even PA exists. The Stenos in attached department 100% retired from the same post and scale. They should ensured that every Grade 20 to 22 are provided PA and PS posts then such clarification are beneficial. It also means that these benefits are for Ministries only. First the Govt.must create posts of PS/PA to grade-20 and above atonce and than issue the such orders. In attached department no promotion channel is available for stenographers e.g. Geological Survey of Pakistan it's stenographers retired as stenographer after 30-36 years service as stenographer,whereas it has 4 posts of grade-20 and DG grade-21. Hence there needs no quality stuff and essential useful information.So, everyone is killing the time here in Pakistan. May Allah live it long..Ameen.

  6. Raihan bhai AOA, if you read my comments considerably, you will see that my comments are 100% true. Still, Estt.Div. is pressing to Finance Division for teasing the stenos.Whereas, upgradation of Technical Assistant in Survey of Pakistan has win the with reference to stenos upgradation, the Estt.Div.says that we agrees and stenos are hanging between Courts and Govt.Every thing is possible for us. Hence wait to see our weight in the eyes of bureaucracy of pakistan.
