ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has warned its officers not to exert political pressure onto the administration in matters pertaining to postings or transfers.
Sources said that a member of the FBR admin department has written a letter to all chief commissioners of inland revenue as well as customs chief collector and director generals with regard to exertion of political pressure by officers in administration matters.
“I have noticed with serious concern that certain officers in total disregard to Rule 19 & 29 of Government Servants (Conduct) Rules, 1964 are exerting political/external pressures and interferences in connection with their posting/transfers,” the officer said, according to the sources.
All concerned officers have been marked and necessary observations have been placed in their personal dossiers. These official observations will be one of the main considerations when making career decisions for these officers, including promotion and disciplinary proceedings besides placement and rotations. “Therefore, at the cost of the repetition every officer is once again advised to be cautious of the seriousness of this subject at all times,” said the FBR.
In this respect, all aforementioned chief officers are requested to circulate this information with the needed seriousness to all officers under their commands.
