ISLAMABAD The Supreme Court has fixed April 28 the date for announcement of its judgment in a case pertaining to promotions of 54 civil servants of grade 21 to grade 22 on the Prime Ministers discretionary powers, a statement issued by the Supreme Court said on Friday. Notices have also been issued to the AG, concerned advocates and all relevant officers (promoted and non-promoted) to appear on April 28 at 9am in the Court Room No. 1, at the Supreme Court building. A three-member Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on January 29 had reserved the judgment on the petitions filed by a number of affected officers of grade 21 against the promotion of 54 officers of grade 21 to grade 22 by the Prime Minister who used his discretionary powers last year for these promotions, keeping aside the merit and principle of seniority. On September 4 last year, the Prime Minister had reshuffled almost the entire top brass of bureaucracy, replacing over a dozen Federal Secretaries and announcing changes in several other Ministries by promoting a number of civil servants to grade 22. Those who were ignored moved the Supreme Court pleading that massive injustice rather corruption had been done to them by promoting the 54 bureaucrats. It were the largest promotions to grade-22 and shake-up in many years in which Secretaries of Interior, Information, Industries, Privatisation Commission, Labour, and Special Secretary of Finance were among those who have been replaced with the newly promoted officers.
