FBR officers found non-compliant to asset declaration

ISLAMABAD: A large number of officers in BS-19 and BS-20 have been found non-compliant to the mandatory filing of asset declaration, according to a circular issued by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).

According to the FBR, the majority of BS-19 and BS-20 officers of the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) and Pakistan Customs Service (PCS) had not filed their asset declaration up to June 30, 2021.

The revenue body said that all the officers of IRS and PCS, who are in the promotion zone, were asked through a letter dated June 14, 2021, to ensure that their performance evaluation report (PERs) and declaration of assets up to June 30, 2021, are submitted to the Board latest by July 10, 2021.

“However, scrutiny of their personal record reveals that majority of the officers have not submitted their PERs and Declaration of Assets for the period ending June 30, 2021,” the FBR said.

The FBR said a meeting of the Central Selection Board (CSB) for promotion from BS-20 to BS-21 and BS-19 to BS-20 is being held shortly and cases for promotion shall be submitted to the Establishment Division for CSB by September 05, 2021.

All BS-19 and BS-20 officers of IRS and PCS in the promotion zone have been asked to ensure that their PERs and Declaration of Assets up to June 30, 2021, are submitted to the board by September 03, 2021, positively.

The FBR said that completion of PERs and submission of Declaration of Assets are the pre-requisites for promotion to selection grades under Civil Servants Promotion (BS-18 to BS-21) Rules, 2019.

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

The FBR said that any officer who fails to furnish the documents by the due date of September 03, 2021, will himself/herself be responsible for non-consideration / deferment/supersession.
