Forwards summary to fund department after getting approval from chief secretary
LAHORE: To recruit 145 staff members, the Punjab Archaeology Department has actually forwarded a summary to the Punjab Financing Department after receiving approval from the provincial chief secretary.
After the 18 th Change, the administrative authority was offered to the provincial federal government. Therefore, taking this into the account, it is necessary for the Punjab Archaeology Department to take approval from the financing division to hire staff.
In the past, the financing department had turned down the summary several times due to the absence of funds which affected the repair work of historical buildings and gardens. Now considering that funds are offered, the process of recruitment will start from the next month and the rate of work will be enhanced.
Sources stated that departmental procedures were slow due to vacant posts from Grade 1 to Grade 7. The lack of personnel compels existing employees to manage more than one staff member’s work obligations. They included that a committee comprising archaeologists and secretariat “AGF” authorities will send out the summary to the Punjab Financing Department after getting the approval from the chief secretary. After the approval, the summary will be sent out to the Punjab Finance Department for more approval. From next month, recruitment will be begun after financing is approved.
According to the certifications, the applications will be gathered and the procedure of employing will take location formally. Due to the scarcity of personnel, the Punjab Archaeology Department was dealing with severe troubles. However, now the clerks, deputy messengers and guard will be hired for the workplace and this will cause substantial enhancement.
