Cool Real Picture of MLCG

Currently this group is ranked 10th, but to be brutally honest this department is as attractive as customs and income tax if not equal to PSP and DMG.

My father was in this department, that is why i know each and every detail of this department, it's pros and cons.

As far as i can remember there are more than 20 stations on which an officer can possibly be posted.

Some stations are as follows...

Peshawar, Noshera, Risalpuir, Abbottabad, Havelian, Kalabagh, Murree, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Multan, Kharian, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Mangla, Quetta, Hyderabad, Karachi and some more.

In majority of the cantt stations there is a CEO and a MEO. In some of the stations there is only a CEO. CEO stands for Cantt Executive Officer and MEO stands for Military Estates Officer. In some of the cities there are more than one cantonments. e.g in Pindi there is Pindi Cantt and Chaklala Cantt. In Lahore there is Lahore and Walton Cantt. In Karachi there are probably 6-7 Cantts...faisal, karachi, malir etc etc.

17 - 19 Grade Officers are posted as CEO's and MEO's...In small stations like Risalpur, Mangla, Kharian, Havelian etc etc 17 grade Officers are posted. 18 Grade officers are posted to Gujranwala, Sargodha, Hyderabad, Abbottabad or Additional CEO in a big city. 19 grade officers are posted as CEO's and MEO's to Peshawar, Lahore, Pindi, Multan, Karachi and Quetta.

20 Grade officer Job Title changes to REGIONAL DIRECTOR. and they are posted as Director Peshawar, Lahore, Karachi, Quetta and Deputy DG Pindi.

21 Grade officer is ONLY ONE in the department who is DG-MLCG in Pindi.

MLCG life standard is very high. Big beautiful banglows in posh cantonment area, car, two cars when promoted to 19 grade. almost ten designated servants (even a tailor) and many moe facilities like phone, newspaper etc etc. On officer can easily install furniture, AC's or even renovate the whole house if he wants. MLCG rest houses are in every major city. One can live up to many months in the rest houses if he wants. e.g An officer is posted out in Abbotabad but he wants to move there alone as his family and kids are living in the Peshawar residence so that his kids may take their exams etc.

No Political Pressure or interference involved but Army interference is there. e.g CEO Peshawar (19 grade post), Station Commander (normally a Brig) and GOC (Maj Gen or Lt Gen) works together. MLCG officer doesn't come DIRECTLY under GOC but seniority wise he has to listen to the GOC. If an officer maintains good relations with the city's Station Commander and GOC, he literally lives like a KING in the cantonment.

I know a lot of stuff about MLCG but right now all i can remember and share with you guys is this.

It is because of this reason my preference list goes like ...

1. DMG.
2. MLCG.
3. ....
4. ....

And one thing more.. a MLCG officer can be transferred to DMG and vice versa. This thing was included in the Bhutto Administrative Reforms 1973 or 1974. My dad was offered the post of Political Agent back in 1977 i guess but he refused. I know that was a big mistake. Those of you who know what actually a Political Agent is will agree with me. But he had a fantastic life in MLCG also. So never mind.

Cool

@shootingstar

i think this department is absolutely appropriate for females, if her family/husband is willing to go where ever she is posted after every 2-3 years. In this department normal posting time is approximately 2-3 years. it can vary depending on your luck and the situation. and as far as the army personnel goes.. it doesn't matter at all. Let me put it this way.. if a female is capable she'll excel like anything if she's not she won't. simple as that. Promotion in this department is relatively slow but main and simple mantra is to be kind to not only your seniors in the department and the army personnels but also to your staff. and if you do the work efficiently and effectively phir tou sonay pe sohaga.

@ Dr. sahab

it's in my profile.

mlcg has ON THE JOB TRAINING, matlab you'll be posted out straight away once you complete your CTP. On the job you'll work with a senior officer (18 or 19 grade) as a trainee for 4 months or so. It has been like this since ages, Currently if they've made some chances i don't know about it . but I'm sure they haven't changed the format

@ Doctor Sahab

Congrats on your allocation . I'm sending you my cell number, check your inbox. You can call me for further queries

So BPS-21 is the highest one can go in MLCG? Or are there options to switch over to Secretariat Group like DMG does at BPS-20?

yes BPS-21 is the highest grade in MLCG, and as far as your second question goes, I'm not sure about it. But in past MLCG had DMG officers and vice versa. I don't know the complete procedure or whether still it is like that or not. My dad was also offered a post of P.A in Bhutto regime, but he refused.
