FBR directs officials to file asset declarations

KARACHI: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has identified that majority of its senior officers have failed to furnish their assets declaration.

The assets declaration is mandatory under the government servant laws and mandatory for the promotion to the next scale.

In an official memo sent to the officers of the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) and Pakistan Customs Service (PCS) in BS-19 and BS-20, the revenue board warned the officers that their cases for promotion to the next scale would not be considered in case they failed to submit assets declaration.

Further, the officers have also been directed to provide performance evaluation reports (PERs) to the board.

According to the communication, all the officers in BS-19 and BS-20, who are waiting for promotion, have been asked to submit their PERs and assets declaration up to June 30, 2021 to the FBR headquarters by July 7, 2021.

“[The] scrutiny of their personal record reveals that [the] majority of the officers have not yet submitted their PERs and assets declaration for the period ended June 30, 2021,” the FBR added.

The revenue body also said the meeting of the Central Selection Board (CSB) for the promotion of Pakistan Customs Service (PCS) from BS-20 to BS-21 and BS-19 to BS-20 is being held shortly and the cases for the promotion would be submitted to the Establishment Division for CSB by September 5, 2021.

Therefore, the FBR directed the officers to submit their PERs and assets declaration by September 3, 2021.

“Completion of PERs and submission of declaration of assets are the prerequisites for [the] promotion to selection grades under [the] Civil Servants Promotion (BS-18 to BS-21) Rules, 2019.”

The FBR said it was trying to ensure that all eligible officers should be considered for the promotion in the forthcoming CSB meeting.

However, the FBR warned that any officer who fails to furnish PERs and assets declaration by September 3, 2021, will himself/herself be responsible for non-consideration/deferment or supersession.
