The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has failed to verify the academic credentials of its employees as most of the officials are reluctant to submit their degrees.
Human Resource Directorate official said that degree verification was aimed to trace out appointments on fake degrees in the civic body during the tenure of former chairman CDA. Sources said that that Human Resource Directorate had directed employees to submit their academic credentials but not more than 40 percent degrees of the employees could be submitted to the directorate so far.
In-office, CDA Chairman Tahir Shahbaz after taking charge, had directed to initiate verification process again; sources said and added that hardly 10 percent credentials has been received during two weeks after the directives were issued.It should be mentioned here that the former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in March last year had ordered the verification of the academic credentials of all federal government employees within a period of two months. The deadline was later extended for another 90 days till August 8, 2011. However 16 months later the CDA had barely started the process.
11 more CDA officers
In the third round of reshuffle in the Capital Development Authority (CDA), 11 officers of different cadre have been transferred and given new assignments.
