GILGIT (ET): The legislative assembly of Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) on Tuesday enacted a special law to regularise nearly 180 contract employees of grade 1 onwards to grade 18.
The G-B Contract Employees Regularisation of Service Act 2014 was tabled by law minister Ali Madad Sher on the second day of the 34th session, chaired by Deputy Speaker Jamil Ahmed. The house unanimously endorsed the act, which will be sent to governor for approval.
“This is a one-time opportunity which this house is extending for the regularisation of these contract employees,” said Ali Madad Sher, referring to the 180 employees inducted on a contractual basis during the past four to nine years in various departments. “But this will be applicable to those who fulfilled the required protocols during their induction.”
