ESTABLISHMENT DIVISION ACCORDS CONCURRENCE TO BISP EMPLOYEES SERVICE REGULATIONS
Islamabad: The Establishment division has given concurrence to the draft BISP Employees Service Regulations (BESR), 2018 which was overdue for quite long. The said concurrence/implementation of BESR will open new gateways of opportunity for BISP employees including, but not limited to, regulation of their services, promotions, fresh recruitment, medical facilities and post retirement benefits etc.
The Government of Pakistan established Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) under BISP Act, 2010 as a body corporate which is governed by BISP Board. The Act ibid provides that the Board may make regulations in order to carry out the purposes of this act. In 2012 Service Regulations were drafted and in vogue but these regulations were not comprehensive and neither recruitments could be made against the vacant positions nor could promotions of the existing employees be considered. As a result, the employees of BISP remained dissatisfied and career prospects of the regular BISP employees were at stake. The issue remained unaddressed since the inception of this organization. Now, due to persistence efforts of the existing management the proposal was sent to Establishment Division and subsequently the concurrence has been issued.
