The Directorate General of Internal Audit-Inland Revenue (IR), which is responsible for finding internal loopholes, irregularities, mismanagement, and corruption inside the tax department, has had its administrative structure simplified by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
The offices that have already completed the recruitment process and issued offers of appointments to the selected candidates against the vacancies of the Directorate General of Internal Audit (IR), if any, may post the newly selected candidates with the specific direction, according to FBR instructions issued to the field formations on Thursday.
As a result, the tax regulator’s instructions state that the candidates will remain permanent employees of the Directorate General and that their separate seniority will be maintained with effect from the date of their joining the Directorate General alongside the regular staff, with no right to revert to RT0s/CTOs/LTOs until they forego their seniority.
The offices that have not yet completed the recruitment process may limit the number of selected candidates, with the exception of the advertised vacancies for the Directorate General of Internal Audit (IR), as the Directorate General will complete the separate recruitment process after completing the evaluation process of existing staff and issuing separate seniority lists of staff absorbed in the Directorate General based on evaluation criteria.
The order was issued with the Chairman FBR/Secretary, Revenue Division’s consent, according to FBR.
