FBR Directs 52 IRS Officers to Submit Asset Declaration and Performance Reports

Islamabad, November 7, 2023 – The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has taken a significant step to ensure transparency and compliance within its ranks. In an official communication issued today, the FBR directed 52 officers from the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) to promptly submit their asset declaration and performance reports.

This directive comes in preparation for a forthcoming meeting of the Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC), which is set to discuss promotions from BS-17 to BS-18. In an effort to streamline the promotion process and uphold the highest standards of accountability, all 52 BS-17 IRS officers have been advised to expedite the completion of their Performance Evaluation Reports (PERs) and Declaration of Assets (DAs).

It has been revealed through a scrutiny of personnel records that several officers have yet to fulfill these essential requirements. To be eligible for consideration for promotion to selection grades under the Civil Servants Promotion (BS-18 to BS-21) Rules, 2019, the completion of PERs and submission of Declaration of Assets are mandatory prerequisites.

The FBR is committed to ensuring that all deserving officers are given due consideration for promotion during the upcoming DPC meeting. However, the cooperation of the IRS officers is equally vital to maintain a seamless and efficient process.

The FBR’s directive underscores the importance of transparency and accountability in the service, aligning with the government’s drive to promote merit-based promotions and a corruption-free work environment.

As the deadline for submitting the required documents is fast approaching, it is imperative for all concerned IRS officers to comply promptly with the FBR’s directive. This move not only upholds the integrity of the promotion process but also enhances the reputation of the IRS as a department dedicated to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and accountability.

In conclusion, the FBR’s call for timely submission of asset declarations and performance reports serves as a testament to its commitment to maintaining a credible and effective Inland Revenue Service. Officers are encouraged to act swiftly to ensure their compliance with the stated requirements to facilitate their eligibility for promotion.
