Published Date :

Senate Special Committee to examine the Annual Report of Federal Public Service Commission for 2015 in its first meeting discussed the composition of the Board of the Commission among other issues relating to general recruitment and Competitive Examinations. The Committee members decided to invite Rector of National School of Public Policy (NSPP) to the next meeting to take input on civil service reforms. It was also decided that Ministry of Planning and Reforms will be asked to send the team members who have worked on recommendations for reforms in the Commission and civil service with the requisite work completed so far to the meeting.

The meeting was chaired by Senator Muzaffar Hussain Shah here at the Parliament House on Wednesday and was attended among others by Senators Mohsin Leghari, Nauman Wazir Khattak, Daud Achakzai, Saud Majeed, Mir Kabeer Shahi, Tahir Mashhadi, Special Secretary Establishment Division, Secretary FPSC and directors from FPSC.

The Committee observed that the Commission is in need of a proper study as to what should be the composition of the board of the commission, what went wrong where in the mechanism of taking the Competitive Examination, how other countries process the selection of civil servants. The Committee also asked the Commission and Established Division to calculate information about how have the toppers of the competitive examinations served in the last twenty years.

Members of the Committee were critical of the fact that all members of the board are from the civil service and at present no member is from the private sector. The FPSC Ordinance from 1977 asks for having rules under which members from private sector can be inducted in the board but the rules haven't been notified yet.

The Committee strongly supported having specialized applications for different groups of the civil service and also suggested having more specialized groups if needed. Members were in favor of having a system where candidates of specific fields of study will be able to compete for each of the 12 service groups.
