Civil Service Reforms committee was formed under the chairmanship of Dr. Ishrat Hussain Ex Governor of the State Bank of Pakistan for bringing reforms in current civil service rules. Committee has submitted their proposal along with recommendations on Civil Service reforms 2019 in Pakistan to the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan for approval from cabinet. Still cabinet has not made any decision in this regard for its implementation. Main aim of the bringing reforms in Civil Services is to bring specialized bureaucracy and eliminate old concept of superior services and all the differences of cadre and Non cadre will be removed.

We will try to answer questions which are arising in their minds of aspirant s on Civil Service Reforms 2019.

  1. From which year Civil Service reforms will be imposed?  Answer to this question is that it will take time because Dr ishrat Hussain committee report recommended changing the entire structure of Civil Service so it will not be possible to implement these reforms for the upcoming CSS 2020. To bring reforms in Civil Service only executive order will not work an amendments in the law will be mandatory in the Constitution of Pakistan.
  2. CSS 2020 Syllabus will be revised or not ? It looks like CSS 2020 syllabus will not be revised this year and exam will be conducted on previous pattern.
  3. Civil Service Reforms will be acceptable to the bureaucracy? I think it will require long discussion to take on board all the civil servants who are currently working in Federal Capital and in the Provinces. Even civil servants belonging to Punjab, KPK, Balochistan and Sindh  shown their concerns for not giving representation in the reforms committee.
  4. Whether CSS Aspirants should start their preparation as per previous syllabus for upcoming CSS 2020? Answer to this question is yes because it will take some time and require lot of paper work by the Government and taking all the stake holders on board on this issue . So our suggestion is that you should start your preparation as per CSS 2019 syllabus. FPSC informs about any changes in the CSS rules , syllabus and any other changes at least 6 months before the exam.
