Removal of Misconceptions regarding the quota of females:

We had conversation with the Chairman FPSC regarding women quota, he replied that there is no such policy as the services are not gender biased and that opined that we must not belief rumours in various news papers and should have check its relevancy from the respective department i.e. FPSC
