Tenure safety of bureaucrats: Important decisions taken by federal cabinet
ISLAMABAD - Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said the federal cabinet dilated upon the issue of tenure safety of senior bureaucrats in detail. A suggestion has been made that federal secretaries should be provisionally appointed for a period of six months at a ministry and after successful completion of that period, their appointment will be extended for two and half year. During this period they will not be transferred or removed from their positions.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan firmly believes that bureaucracy should be free from any political interference.
The Minister said the appointment of bureaucrats should be linked with their performance and not political connections.

Other members of the Committee will be Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, Railways Minister Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad, and Prime Minister's Advisor on Institutional Reforms Dr. Ishrat Hussain.
