Finance secretary transferred
ISLAMABAD, Feb 12: The government appointed on Tuesday finance secretary Abdul Wajid Rana as member of the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC).
The government designated Abdul Khaliq as additional secretary in charge of the finance ministry to look after the functions of principal accounting officer. “A full-time finance secretary is expected to be appointed by the caretaker government,” a senior officer told Dawn.
After his retirement as finance secretary and being designated as “principal officer” against the post of finance secretary, Mr Rana was re-employed in November last year on a one-year contract to sidestep a Supreme Court judgment that barred extension to grade-22 officers after retirement.—Staff Reporter
