  3. My dear Sabir Chauhan Bhai,I am very thankful to your valuable comments ,your information is correct because your experience is so much better than me wait for the notification of F.D,how much love with us.Thanks.

  4. Raihan bhai.It seems that peoples are relaxed not worry and waiting for some thing is better than nothing formula.My thinking is according to my working speed,in opinion the notification must out today early. It means their speed is very slow hence, we can also say the there may be some confusion which needs settlement. Our believe is hope on allah who does better for his men.We should be available on screen till the complete implementation of FST decision as per promise of Khalid bhai.

  5. Now every one is waiting for issuance of notification without further delay.

  6. I think words cann't speak of the efforts made by Mr. Khalid Riaz and Co for the cause of steno community. This is indeed a great act. I take this opportunity to point out that in field offices there is hardly any post of Private Secretary and the post of stenographer is the last step of our promotion. Unaturally, Establishment Division has not taken into consideration this fact nor it has given any incentive or credit to the post of stenograper after qualifying services of '5' or 12 years because those who are already serving in BS-16 or to be upgraded in 16 will remain freezed in the same scale irrespective of their length of services which is confusing and against the rules of fair play and natural justice.

    Mr. Muhammad Iqbal

  7. I want to know whether, for upgradation, stenos would have to serve more years and they will be promoted, or they will be promoted as the notification is implemented with regard to their previous service which they have done...???

  8. i want to know, will the new appointment of Stenographer (BS:16) be made by FPSC or concerned department as before?
