Karachi Development Authority (KDA) is facing financial crisis from couple of years due to which department is getting 280.5 Million monthly grant from Sindh Government for the payment of employees monthly salaries and pensions.
However the retired employees of KDA also have to wait for years for payment of their benefits as the department is not financially stable.
On the other hand KDA Management has hired Retired Sindh Government Officer namely Nisar Ahmed on contractual basis for one year on heavy amount of Two Hundred Thousand Rupees Per Month.
The said retired employees was previously posted as Section Officer in Services General Administration and Coordination Department Government of Sindh.
The mentioned contractual hiring order was issued on 10th February 2022 by Secretary KDA to perform tasks under the administrative control/ supervision of Secretary KDA.
Whereas, The Tasks which were mentioned on the said order were included Preparation of Agenda Items before Governing body of KDA, Drafting for correspondence with Federal and Provincial Governments including others.
It was learned that the KDA Secretariat department already have regular appointed staff to perform Secretary KDA tasks but hiring of person on contractual basis with heavy salary amid facing financial crisis is a big question mark on KDA Management decision.
As the Minister Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain Shah is trying to get KDA financially stable but such decisions will put more financial burden on KDA.
Moreover sources informed that the said contractual hired person is the name of Mr. Fayyaz PS to Minister Local Government Sindh to influence the employees of KDA.
