Lahore (Express Tribune / Thursday, August 29, 2013) – On Wednesday, August 28, 213, Punjab Assembly has taken up a bill to amend the police recruitment process.

A special committee presented its report on the Punjab Police Order Amendment Bill 2013 in the assembly after question hour on Wednesday.

The opposition proposed four amendments to the bill, two of which were defeated and two put off till Thursday, when the house is also expected to approve the legislation.

The amendment bill will allow the government to recruit some 600 sub inspectors (SIs) across the province through the Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC). The bill aims to encourage the recruitment and promotion of educated youths and to improve the quality of criminal investigations.

Recruitment Through Punjab Public Service Commission
Under an amendment to Article 7 of the Police Order of 2002, the PPSC will be able to recruit policemen, other than to the ministerial and specialists cadres, in the rank of constable, SI and assistant superintendent of police (ASP). Earlier, direct recruitments could be made only up to the assistant sub inspector (ASI) and ASP ranks.

The selection of constables will be made on the basis of district of domicile. The PPSC will recruit SIs to police regions which cover the candidates’ district of domicile and shall not exceed 50 per cent of the total SI posts. This would mean that, if Lahore say has 500 SIs, then the PPSC will recruit another 250.

Departmental Promotion Quota
Under the amendment bill, 25 per cent of the quota reserved for departmental promotion to the rank of SI shall be filled through selection on merit by the PPSC from among head constables and ASIs who hold bachelor’s degrees. And 25 per cent of departmental promotions to ASI shall be decided by the PPSC from amongst constables and head constables who hold bachelor’s degrees.

Law and Parliamentary Affairs Department Director Mohsin Abbas Syed told The Express Tribune that currently, 100 per cent of promotions from constable through to SHO are departmental promotions; the amendment bill would reduce this to 37.5 per cent. Fifty per cent of SIs would be recruited through the PPSC, 12.5 per cent through promotions decided by the PPSC, and the rest through promotions decided by the department itself. The amendment bill will also allow SIs to be appointed as station house officers.
