LAHORE -- As the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) didn't comply with the government's April 25 order of removing five deputationists from BS-19 posts of directors, it may face action in a day or two if it fails to do so by Monday (tomorrow).

Upon failure to comply, the government is set to issue orders to repatriate services of the deputationists (BS-17 officers of Provincial Management Service) and initiate inquiry against them and take severe disciplinary action against those involved in not posting the aforementioned officials in grade 18, Dawn has learnt.

'The government is following this issue and the LDA must be ready for a severe action by Monday evening. Action means repatriation of the deputationists, initiation of inquiry against them and disciplinary against those who continue to flout the government instructions,' a senior official told Dawn on Saturday.

On the other hand, the government while responding to a note sent by the LDA director general to the minister for housing, reiterated its stance. 'I am directed to refer to your note for the minister for housing dated April 26 regarding transfer / posting of the deputationists and to state that a note for the chief secretary was initiated by your office in a writ petition (Sardar Muhammad Akbar Nakai versus Govt of Punjab and others).'
