To address allegations of favoritism and ensure merit-based selection of the employees for Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) and its educational institutions, the Ministry of Federal Education & Professional Training has taken proactive measures and directed the FDE to initiate re-interviews of candidates. According to official sources, five Departmental Selection Committees (DSCs) have been formed, each comprising three members, including a chairman, to oversee the transparent recruitment and re-interview of candidates for the positions of BS-01 and BS-02 within the FDE. The interviews, which commenced on August 4, are being held over a span of three days, concluding on August 6. The DSCs are operating concurrently, ensuring a swift and thorough assessment of each candidate. The selection committee members hail from diverse backgrounds within the Ministry and the education sector, lending credibility to the process and minimizing the likelihood of bias. Committee-1, led by Hameed Khan Niazi, D.S (Admn), M/O FE&PT, is conducting interviews at Islamabad Model College for Boys G-9/4. Meanwhile, Committee-2, headed by Muhammad Kamran, Director, FDE, is conducting interviews at Islamabad Model College for Boys H-9.
