    I need circular of finance division regarding M.Phill/ Phd allowance of Government of Pakistan, not govt of punjab, kindly help me

  5. Inayat Rahman Baloch says:

    This is only for those who possess higher degree before 2001 and if their increments are due, they will be allowed for the previous period before the 2001, it is clear that same is not allowed for those who got higher degrees after 2001 onwards. But i think Government should allow same to all if they are using word “restored”. Thanks

  6. ase tell me anyone whether those employees who got the higher qualification after 2001 i.e. 2002, 2003-2011, will be admissible for advance increments. i have doubt about the sentence

    “The above decision is applicable in all identical cases prior to 01-12-2001 (i.e. the date of discontinuation of the scheme).

    Please tell me US the meaning of above sentence.


  7. it is only for promotion cases prior to 2001 or all employees who were not allowed advance increament kindly clarify
