Accountants appeal for upgradation of scale
ISLAMABAD—The Accountants working in Federal Government Educational institutions FGEIs cantts/ garrisons have appealed to the authorities to upgrade them from BPS 14 to 16 in the light of court orders.
The Accountants were of view that orders of their upgradation were passed by the Federal Services Tribunal after hearing of their appeal.
The court had ordered on January 21 to upgrade the Accountants but the concerned ministry of defence and Finance Division have not issued their upgradation notification to date. The accountants said that they were in great grievance due to negligence of the concerned departments.
Seeking equal basic pay scale (BPS), Accountants of the Federal Government educational institutions cantts garrisons have urged the government to end discrimination by providing scale upgradations delivered to Accountants of FGEIs Directorate islamabad and other departments of federal ministries.
The Accountants expressed views seeking up-gradations similar to what government has given to FDE ISLAMABAD Accountants by revising their scale from BPS-14 to BPS-16.
They underscored that all ministries and other departments had awarded such upgradation to their Accountants and questioned that why the federal government was not paying heed to the matter. They demanded the federal government to improve their scales for well-being of the government servants in the light of the decision of FST.
Accountants also showed eagerness to attain scale upgradation. They urged the federal government to provide equivalent status. They underscored that this was constitutional obligation of the government to avoid discriminating among workers.—Agencies
