NHA witnesses large-scale transfersArchive
ISLAMABAD: In light of a recent internal audit in the National Highways Authority (NHA), a massive reshuffle in its hierarchy took place on Monday in which many officials — including some considered ‘influential’ that have been working in the same position for the last five to 10 years — have been transferred.
According to the NHA, the wide-ranging transfers and postings of officers in BPS Grades 19, 18 and 17 were made with the objective of promoting good governance and ensuring transparency. “The step will also help terminate the monopoly of officers who remained posted at the same position for a long time,” the NHA spokesperson said in a press release.
To bring to an end the trend of long postings, the NHA has chalked out a policy dictating a maximum three years’ tenure at one post. It is hoped that these measures will eventually prepare the ground to improve the performance of the organisation and ensure the completion of projects on time and with quality.
