    Respectfully Sheweth,

    Sir, I am working as Senior Scale Stenographer (on current charge) (BS-15) in WASA (LDA), Lahore. I would like to draw your kind attention towards that Federal Service Tribunal vide its judgments dated 06.02.2010 and 15.02.2011 has upgraded the posts of Stenographers/Private Secretaries in Pakistan and Supreme Court of Pakistan vide his order dated 11.10.2011 has also directed the Government of Pakistan to implement the judgments of Tribunal within one month, order of the Supreme Court of Pakistan dated 11.10.2011 is reproduced below:-


    11.10.2011. Mian Shakirullah Jan, J through these petitions, the petitioners have challenged the order of the Federal Service Tribunal whereby the petitioners were directed to implement the judgment of the Tribunal dated 06.02.2010 and 15.02.2011.
    2. The respondents concise statement is placed on file and office memorandum Government of Pakistan Cabinet Secretariat Establishment Division, whereby according to the respondents their grievances to the extent of upgradation of the posts in accordance with the judgment of the Service Tribunal has been considered, however, the final order by the competent authority is still to be passed which document has been annexed with the concise statement and is not disputed one. However, the petitioners plea is that since the office memorandum has been issued only by the Establishment Division whereas, the opinions of Controller General of Pakistan and Finance Division are still awaited. It is for the petitioners to process the matter immediately and to get their opinions and then final order by the competent authority.
    3. In view of the above, these petitions are disposed of with the direction that the matter be finalized within a period of one month from the date of this order. All CMAs are also disposed of accordingly.

    In compliance of Supreme Court of Pakistan order dated 11.10.2011, Prime Minister of Pakistan has been pleased to upgrade the posts of Stenographers in Pakistan through Finance Division’s Notification No.F.No.19(55)Legal-II/2010-1055 dated 23.12.2011 and copies of this Notification has been endorsed to all Chief Secretaries/Finance Secretaries of Government of the Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhawan and Azad Estate of Jammu & Kashmir for information and implementation. Copy of this Notification is also endorsed to Supreme Court of Pakistan, Islamabad at Sr.No.8.

    Sir, more than one and half month has been elapsed for issuance of Notification dated 23.12.2011 of Finance Division but Punjab Government as well as other Provincial Governments have not implemented the said Notification and Chief Secretary/Finance Secretary of Government of the Punjab are playing delaying tactics.

    Sir, I humbly request your good honour that suo-moto action be taken against all Provincial Governments i.e. Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhawan and Azad Estate of Jammu & Kashmir for non implementation of Finance Division Notification dated 23.12.2011 as well as the order of Supreme Court of Pakistan dated 11.10.2011 and Provincial/ AJK Governments be directed to upgrade the posts of Stenographers/Private Secretaries w.e.f. 23.12.2011.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

  2. Thanks Mughal Sahib, you have taken bold step for community. I hope the Supreme Court will consider it genuine despirity and take appropriate action. This is a appreciable try may ALLAH help us to achieve our right.
    The movement in upgradation case is also good sign, because the I read above that Dialy Ajj has given any cliping regarding implementatin on upgradation of Stenoglraphers in province of Khybe pakhtunkhaw. Such developments incourage the peoples who are waiting consciously. God is great,merciful and helpful to all.

    Well done Mr. Munawar Shah Munawar. It is very good effort for requesting to CM KPK for upgradation of the posts of Stenographers of KPK. I and Mr. Chohan has already requested to all Stenographers in Pakistan please use the print media. I once again request my all friends of Stenographers especially residing in Sindh, Baluchistan, AJK & Gilgit should write letters in "Editor Ki Dak" especially in daily Nawa-e-Waqt requesting their provincial governments for early upgradation of Stenographers.

    I also well come Ms. Suporna Roy who appeared in this forum. I think she is first lady who participated our this forum but I request her please give her point of view regarding upgradation.

  10. I have contacted to my friend of print and electronic media. Inshallah we'll see news regarding implementation of upgradation in DAWN newspaper and GEO TV.

  11. Aslamo Alaikum Wa Rehmat Ullah!

    I request to Mr. Yousaf of PBM and other Stenographers should use Urdu Print media especially Daily Nawa-e-Waqt and Jang because both Urdu newspapers are widely published/circulated throughout Pakistan and most of Pakistani peoples are study Urdu newspaper, therefore, we should avoid English newspapers/DAWN etc, so far as concern of electric media i.e. GEO TV, it is quite better because most of peoples see GEO TV.

    I once again request the Stenographers working in DGPR offices show their efforts and use print media for early upgradation of Provincial Stenographers.

No doubt, Urdu reader are over whelming, but the endlish news are also read in high level. In this regard I would like to say if the employees of PID will take interest, that will be helplful for use. Hence, please be active for achieving your genuine rights already allowed by the apex court
