ISLAMABAD : Wide ranging transfers and postings of officers of BPS 19, 18, 17 have been made in National Highway Authority (NHA) to promote good governance and ensure transparency in functioning of the authority.
These officers had remained posted on the same post for a period of five to 10 years, said a press release on Monday.
The step will also help terminate monopoly of officers who remained posted on the same seat for long period of time, it said.
