ISLAMABAD: On Thursday Mohammad Younus Dagha was removed as the secretary finance, said a notification issued by the Cabinet Secretariat/Establishment Division.
A separate notification announced the transfer of Naveed Kamran Baloch, who was posted as cabinet division secretary, to the role of finance secretary.
Naveed Kamran Baloch has previously served as Khyber Pakhtunkhawa Chief Secretary. He joined the civil services on October 22, 1985. He was previously a grade 22 officer with the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), posted as Secretary National Health Services, Regulations & Coordination Division. He will retire on March 7, 2021.
Maroof Afzal, who is currently posted as secretary of the Information Technology and Telecommunication Division, will be posted to Baloch’s previous position as cabinet division secretary.
Dagha took charge as finance secretary in March after the post fell vacant following the retirement of incumbent Arif Ahmed Khan.
Dagha’s removal from the post comes a day after Board of Investment (BoI) chairman Haroon Sharif, who was appointed eight months ago, tendered his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan.
