If this precedent was established, more than 200 council officers will be absorbed as civil servants like him, the letter said.

The Regional Director in a communication sent to Secretary Local government Department, said that the Regional director does not reflect the post of Assitant Director LG (grade 17). Therefore Mr Bugio was relieved and directed to report to LG Department on Aguust 17.

The LG regional director proposed that following record may be called from him and scrutinized if considered for promotion/ continuation in BP -17.

If he claims to be appointed as council officer afresh by initial appointment. 1) recruitment Rules of the post of Council officer, offer letter issued to him, appointment order, first salary bill duly audited, budget estimates of the year he claims to be appointed, nomenclature of the

of SCUG officers notified by the Government mentioning grade of TO Town Committee Lakhi, bank statement of first salary drawn by him as council officer, his service book, seniority list of the council officers,

The letter further stated that if he claims his elevation as council officer grade 17 by promotion:

Orders of his promotion leading him to the post of Grade 17, recruitment of post of council officer grade 17, name and designation of authority promoting him.

The letter further said that some more points may be considered additionally: How he got him declared as employee of surplus pool despite existence of local councils including his parent one?

How a council employee can be absorbed as civil servant despite availability of posts of his own cader/ service

Why the others more than 200 council officers have not been declared as surplus and absorbed as civil servants like him?
