ISLAMABAD: The Usman Buzdar-led PTI government during its three-and-a-half-year tenure transferred over 3,000 officers against around 421 key secretariat and field positions in violation of both the tenure policy and the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Anita Turab case.

This musical chairs style of governance of the previous government had hardly allowed any key officer in the province to complete his tenure and those transferred repeatedly on the whims and wishes of the rulers were made rolling stones without any reason reflected in the files.

There have been no suo moto notices and no punishments for the violators even though in almost all these premature transfers made in complete disregard of the tenure policy there have been glaring violations of the SC’s Anita Turab case, which barred the government from transferring officers before the completion of their tenure. The SC case had set clear guidelines to protect the tenure of officers but the Buzdar government played havoc with the provincial administration and police by changing officers within weeks and months.

Details available with The News show that the Buzdar government transferred around 1,100 secretaries, director generals, commissioners, deputy commissioners and additional deputy commissioners in the province. The maddening pace of changes was the worst in the Police Department where more than 1,900 senior police officials, including DIGs, regional police officers, city police officers, district police officers and SDPOs, were transferred. According to the record, around 306 DIGs, RPOs, CPOs and DPOs were transferred and more than 1,600 SDPOs were changed during the Usman Buzdar government.

The record reveals that four districts were the major focus of these changes where maximum numbers of transfers and postings occurred. These four districts were Lahore, Gujranwala, Pakpattan and Dera Ghazi Khan. Similarly, Chakwal is the least affected district of these transfers and postings where minimum numbers of officials in the administrative and police departments were transferred.

It is relevant to mention here that Punjab during the Buzdar tenure saw five chief secretaries and seven inspectors generals of police. This has never happened before.


During its three-and-a-half-year tenure in Punjab, the Buzdar government changed 216 secretaries in 40 provincial departments. The PTI-led government changed up to 10 secretaries in some departments. On average, every department welcomed more than five secretaries during the Buzdar era. As many as 10 secretaries were changed in the School Education Department. Similarly, nine secretaries were transferred to the Higher Education and Transport Department.

The Management & Professional Development Department, Irrigation Department, Forestry, Wildlife & Fisheries Department and Auqaf & Religious Affairs Department each welcomed eight secretaries in the PTI-led government in Punjab. The minimum number of transfers of secretaries in any ministry is three.


The reshuffling in the bureaucracy was not limited to the extent of secretaries, Buzdar also changed 57 commissioners in all nine Divisions of Punjab. On average, the PTI government changed 5.7 ,ommissioners in every division during its three-and-a -half-year tenure.

Lahore, Gujranwala, Dera Ghazi Khan and Sahiwal are the top four divisions of Punjab where a maximum number of commissioners were transferred. In each of the four divisions, seven commissioners were changed by the Buzdar government. Bahawalpur is the division where the minimum number of (4) commissioners were changed.

Deputy Commissioners

In 36 districts of Punjab, the Buzdar government transferred 198 deputy commissioners in three and a half years. On average, 5.5 DCs were changed in every district during the PTI led government. Dera Ghazi Khan and Gujranwala are the two districts where the maximum number of DCs were changed. Each of the two districts welcomed 8 DCs during the Buzdar tenure. Even the number of transfers in Mianwali and Lahore is less than in DG Khan and Gujranwala.

Chakwal, Multan and Khanewal are the three districts where the minimum numbers of transfer of DCs took place. Only three Deputy Commissioners have been posted in these districts during the PTI government. There are a few instances where a DC was changed within two months e.g. in Gujranwala Manzoor Hussain was transferred within 58 days of his posting as Deputy Commissioner Gujranwala.

In DG Khan and Pakpattan, some DCs were transferred within three months e.g Waqas Rashid was transferred within three months as DC Dera Ghazi Khan and Nauman Yousaf was transferred in three months as DC Pakpatan.


The Buzdar government made 306 transfers and postings on top slots in the police department including DIGs, RPOs, CPOs and DPOs in all the districts of Punjab. The Buzdar administration changed 10 DIG operations and 11 SSP operations only in Lahore. After Lahore, Pakpattan is the second district where the maximum numbers of DPOs were changed as Buzdar transferred nine district police officers during his tenure.

In terms of Regional Police Officers (RPOs), Gujranwala is on the top of the list where a maximum (8) RPOs were transferred by the Buzdar government. Chakwal is the one of the districts where a minimum reshuffle occurred in the Buzdar government as only three DPOs were transferred during this period.

Director Generals

The PTI government transferred 203 Director Generals (DGs) in 47 directorates established in the Punjab government. On average, every directorate was headed by more than 4 DGs during the Buzdar government.

The Directorate General of the Anti-Corruption Establishment welcomed a maximum number (8) of DGs during the Buzdar government. Religious Affairs and the Auqaf directorate as well as Protocol directorates were the least impacted directorates where only one DG served in each department during the entire tenure of Buzdar government.

Additional Deputy Commissioners

The record shows that Buzdar changed 426 Additional Deputy Commissioners (ADCs), including 114 ADCs (General), 28 ADCs (Headquarters), 85 ADCs (F&P) and 199 ADCs (Revenue) in all 36 districts of Punjab.

As per the record, the PTI government transferred more than 1,600 SDPOs in all the 36 districts of Punjab, which is a record reshuffling in three and a half years time period.

    Why was it done and what was the cost to Punjab gov/treasury? Will Buzdar & Co pay for this rule breaking?

    Judiciary sided with them, especially the 5 member bench.

    I think this is where IK - who was running the province - lost the support of civil servants and rightly so. IK is as guilty as UB. Pakpattan is in the thick of things, why so, take your own guess. Is this not corruption?

    It seems deliberate plan beyond doubt to keep Punjab governance in turbulence by interference from Imran Khan for some sort of detesting/ hating Punjab.

      IK for sure wanted the weakest person on earth to run Punjab who'll not become a threat to him like Manzoor Watoo for NS government.

    It may be shared with the chief justice of Pakistan.

    Every administration has the right deploy who they feel can get the job done. The postings are not "owned" by these people. If Chief Executive of province wants someone else in a role then it is her right to make the change.
