|Jurisdiction/ Location||Federal (Entire Pakistan)|
|Department||Ministry of National Health Services Regulation and Coordination (MoNHSR&C) / Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP)|
|Date of Implementation||22-11-2021|
|Details||Difficulty||Hiring a technical person earlier used to require a highly qualified individual. The qualifications were termed to be extra in terms of the work which they were designated to perform.|
|Analysis||Hiring of overqualified individual for a position where their expertise were not as much required brought in hassle in time and cost of hiring.|
|Solution||The eligibility criteria to hire a technical person was shifted to being a science graduate with an experience of 3-5 years – in comparison to hiring a microbiologist and a medical engineer.|
