ISLAMABAD: Recruitments in the Federal Board of Revenue from grade 1 to 15 will be made directly while recruitments from grade 16 to above will be made through the Federal Public Service Commission.
The final approval for new hiring would be given by FBR Chairman Tariq Bajwa who holds portfolio of Secretary Revenue Division. The sources in FBR said that it has become difficult for officers to continue work since hundreds of seats from grade 1 to 16 are lying vacant.
Therefore, the FBR has decided to start recruitments after Muharram. The sources said that new recruitments would be made purely on merit without interference from political pressure unlike previous practice of selling seats.
The seats of inspectors and appraisers would be filled through the Federal Public Service Commission. The sources said that FBR may cancel recruitment process if at any stage it feels government interference in the process like it did in the past.
