Peshawar

 
March 31, 2015

PESHAWAR: The stay order on the promotion of officers of the Education Department in Grade-19 across the province was vacated after the Peshawar High Court dismissed the writ petition of principals, headmasters and deputy district officers seeking ante-date promotions to grade 19.
A two-member bench comprising Justice Nisar Hussain Khan and Justice Roohul Amin Khan dismissed the petition seeking ante-date promotions to grade 19 with observation that the petition was non-maintainable. On the writ petition of the principals, headmasters and deputy district officers, the court had stayed the promotion of officers of the Education Department to grade-19 across the province. The petitioners’ law-yers submitted before the bench that the petitioners were serving in grade-18 against various posts in the Education Department.
They pleaded that the provincial selection board had approved promotion of dozens of officers on various posts for grade-19 but ignored the petitioners with the remarks that their length of service was less than that needed for promotions.
The lawyers pointed out that the selection board didn’t count their service in grade-16, arguing it was against the law and discrimination against them.Additional Advocate General Rabnawaz Khan appeared for the provincial government and submitted that the petition was non-maintainable. He submitted that the proper forum for the petition was Service Tribunal and not the high court.
