CPDI deplores rising trend of disciplinary action against government employees for seeking information


Bureaucracy has started resorting to launching enquiries and disciplinary actions as more and more citizens are trying to have access to information under right to information laws of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.

According to a report released by Centre for Peace and Development Initiatives (CDPI) here on Thursday, it is highly unfortunate that teachers are facing wrath of bureaucracy in the shape of transfers, suspensions and enquiries for seeking copies of seniority lists.

As reported in the press on March 25th, district education officer (DEO) Nowshera suspended two school teachers Ijaz Ur Rahman and Mudassir Shah under West Pakistan Government Servants (Conduct) Rules 1966.
