(Redirected from District Management Group)

The Pakistan Administrative Service, or PAS (previously known as the District Management Group or DMG before 1 June 2012) is the most elite and prestigious cadre of the Civil Service of Pakistan.[1][2] The Pakistan Administrative Service over the years has emerged as the most consolidated and developed civil institution, with the senior PAS officers of Grade 22 often seen as stronger than the government ministers. The service of PAS is very versatile in nature and officers are assigned to different departments all across Pakistan during the course of their careers. Almost all of the country's highest profile bureaucratic positions such as the federal secretaries, the provincial chief secretaries, and chairmen of top-heavy organisations like the National Highway Authority, Trading Corporation of Pakistan, Federal Board of Revenue and State Life Insurance Corporation usually belong to the elite Pakistan Administrative Service.[3][4] Currently Rabiya Javeri Agha serves as the first female president of the Pakistan Administrative Service.[5]

From district administration to the highest levels of policy making in the federal government, the officers of the Pakistan Administrative Service play the most pivotal part in running the entire country

Officers in this group are recruited through an extremely high competitive examination held once a year by the Federal Public Service Commission. Those selected for this group have to undergo a two-year training programme at the Civil Services Academy (CSA) in Lahore.[1][6]


The Indian Civil Service (ICS)—also known once as Imperial Civil Service in British India, predecessor of the Civil Service of Pakistan and District Management Group—was established by the British to bolster the British Raj. After Indian independence in 1947, the Indian Civil Service component ceded to Pakistan was initially renamed the Pakistan Administrative Service. Later, it was renamed the Civil Service of Pakistan. In 1954, an agreement was reached between the Governor General of Pakistan and the governors of the provinces to constitute an All-Pakistan service valid throughout Pakistan.[7]

Later under administrative reforms of 1973, the name of Civil Service of Pakistan was changed to All-Pakistan Unified Group (APUG), which consists of the Pakistan Administrative Service, Police Service of Pakistan and Secretariat Group. Since 1973, each year a new batch of officers undergo a 'Common Training Programme' (CTP) which includes officers of various occupational groups at the Civil Services Academy.[8]

Appointments of PAS Officers[edit]

After completing initial training and probation at the Civil Services Academy, officers are posted in field offices throughout Pakistan on Basic Pay Scale (BPS)-17 grade appointments. Officers of the rank of Captains (within 3 to 6 years' service) and equivalents from defense services are also inducted (in three occupational groups; P.A.S, Police and Foreign Services) on allocated quota after recommendations of Chairman Federal Public Service Commission.[8]

Officers of PAS are first appointed typically as Assistant Commissioners of sub-divisions. They will simultaneously be charged with the responsibilities of Assistant Commissioners of Sub-Divisional level.[8]
