The Punjab government has constituted committees for inspection of service records of employees who were recruited by the former district governments throughout the province.
A similar inspection committee for scrutiny of service records, including degrees, certificates, CNICs, domiciles and experience certificates, of these employees has been formed in the Rawalpindi district headed by the commissioner and monitored by the district coordination officer.
According to sources, instructions for the formation of these committees has been passed by the provincial high-ups who want to screen out all those employees who were illegally recruited by the defunct district governments.
These employees were recruited on contract in 2004. The services of those who fulfilled the laid down criteria were regularised in August 2009.
According to the policy of the Punjab government, all those employees who were appointed illegally would be kicked out from tehsil municipal administrations and district governments.
Rawalpindi District Coordination Officer (DCO) Imdadullah Bosal will carry out all activities regarding inspection and counter-checking of records of these employees working in the district government and tehsil municipal administration. However the commissioner will submit records of these employees to the Punjab local government secretary.
When contacted by ‘The News,’ Rawalpindi Commissioner Zahid Saeed said: “There are hundreds of employees working in the district government and tehsil municipal administrations (Rawal Town and Potohar Town) whose service records are dubious as they were appointed on fake documents.” He said that he would check and examine all record of these employees and then dispatch findings to Lahore for further action.
