ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Thursday sought record pertaining to the agreements made between the federation and the provinces for transfers of civil servants and adjourned the hearing till November 14. A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan heard the pleas, filed by the civil servants from all the provinces. Four officials from Punjab and one each from other three provinces had filed petitions against the appointment of DMG Group officials in the provinces. Punjab PCS officers under Article 184(3) of the Constitution have filed the petition. The PCS officers have challenged the legality of posting of the DMG officers in the provinces on the grounds that they belong to the federal service, hence, not eligible for posting in the provinces and districts. The prayer has been made on the premise that posting of the federal officers in the provinces can only be made under agreement between the provinces and the federation as envisaged in Civil Service of Pakistan Rules 1954 through which the provinces surrender specific posts for an All-Pakistan Service to be constituted of officers from DMG and the PCS.
