According to the new policy, the promotion will depend on the annual reports, training, and board evaluation. In the case of any reference used for the promotion, it will be deferred. The chairmen of FPSC, secretary, and joint secretary will take the decision about the retirement of grade 20, grade 17 to 19 and grade 16 respectively. For the Pakistan administrative service, the strength has been reduced. As per the amendment in efficiency and discipline rules, the inquiry committee will have the right to take the decision of punishment in 30 days and disciplinary action will also be taken against the person. For the appointment in MP scale, the time period has been increased by 2-3 years and after the advertisement of the post, the suitable person will be selected. Moreover, no officer will be allowed to stay in the province for more than 10 years and now the promotion has also been associated with the rotation of officer.
