Punjab Government, Law and Parliamentary Affair Department has issued the official notification on 24th February, 2021 to the section officer (Personnel-II) Punjab Services and General Administration Department in connection with request for regularization of junior clerks in S&GAD through departmental recruitment committee in 2007 and 2009 from the date of initial appointment instead of date of regularization i.e. 14-10-2009 and 11-7-2014.
Junior Clerk Regularization From Date of Initial Appointment 2021
I am directed to refer your letter No. SOP II(S&GAD)14(2700)/09 dated: 23.02.2021 on the subject and to state that Law Department has already advised in the matter and has also recorded its views on a Note for Additional Chief Secretary.
The Hon’ble Supreme Court of Pakistan has laid down a principle in its judgment cited as 2009 SCMR 1, ordaining that a relief granted to any litigant by the judgment of Tribunal or Supreme Court is also to be provided to similarly placed employees, albeit non-litigants.
Laying obeisance to this Principle, the junior clerks, appointed on contract basis, are entitled to the regularization of their service from the date of their initial contract appointments. The seniority list is also to be prepared mutatis mutandis, by giving effect to the above referred principle.
