Islamabad, January 09, 2020 (PPI-OT): Ministry of Finance has described as factually incorrect a news report published in a section of the press claiming that the Ministry of Finance had been using bureaucratic procedures to delay the sanction of 64 posts of teaching and non-teaching staff for federal colleges despite their approval and recommendation by the Planning Commission. In a statement, the Finance Division has clarified that the case for creation of 64 posts for IMCG I-8/3, IMCG I-14/3, was moved to Finance Division without complete information and requisite documentation.
Hence the matter was referred back to Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training for the needful. The statement further said that requisite input from the relevant ministry had been received and the case was being processed in an expeditious manner. The statement pointed out that similar posts for educational institutions in Bhara Kahu and Sihala areas of Islamabad had already been approved by the Finance Division and the same had been acknowledged and mentioned in the news report, belying the impression of red-tape created by the news report in the case of other colleges.
