ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) has ordered 15 technical contract officers of grade 17 in Railway to qualify Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) test. The court has maintained Islamabad High Court (IHC) has given time of six months and the officers should go and qualify FPSC test. A 3 member bench of SC presided over by the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmad took up for hearing Thursday petitions regarding regularization of 15 technical officers of railway. Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan while addressing the counsel of employees during the hearing of the case remarked there are several decisions of SC wherein it is mandatory to pass FPSC test against the post above grade 16. If you have capability then go and qualify the test. Railway has already been ruined earlier by making appointments without test. The situation is before you the way the jobs were distributed in railway. No one can be regularized in government departments without test and interview. The counsel for the petitioners took the plea during the hearing of the case his clients are performing duties since the last 11 years. It becomes difficult to qualify test. I am lawyer of SC since last several year and if I have to appear in LLB examination now then it will become difficult for me to pass it. FPSC test schedule has been announced for July 28. I request the court to give some time for preparation of the test. CJP while addressing the counsel for petitioners remarked they are in grade 17 and are not ready to appear in basic test.
