Download THE BALOCHISTAN CIVIL SERVANTS’ DEPUTATION POLICY, 2012 — A civil servant is said to be on deputation when he is detached on special temporary duty for the performance of which there is no permanently or temporarily sanctioned appointment. The term “deputation” as defined by the Supreme Court of Pakistan vide PLD 1981 SC 531 means that a government servant begins to be regarded as a “deputationist” when he is appointed or transferred, through the process of selection, to a post in a department or service altogether different from the one to which he permanently belongs, he continues to be placed in this category so long as he holds the new post in an officiating or a temporary, capacity, but ceases to be regarded as such either on confirmation in the new post or on reversion to his substantive post.
