I want to draw the attention of PTI government against the malpractices in the recruitment process of Local Council Board. Last year NTS conducted test in May, 2014 for the posts of AD BPS-17 in Administration Cadre. Results were announced within a week, but interviews were deliberately delayed for one year and now call letters have been issued to some candidates. I passed the test with flying colours, securing 5th position in Zone 3, but I have not been called for an interview. The merit list was not publicly displayed, neither on NTS website nor on Local Government website and the criterion of selection is unknown as the marks achieved in NTS test have been totally ignored.

I would like to ask authorities why such expensive tests by NTS are conducted, if they have no bearing on the jobs. All the candidates would like to ask PTI government to implement merit in letter and spirit. The candidates should not be deprived of their legitimate rights after passing through a tough selection process conducted in a transparent manner by NTS.
