Head administrator Imran Khan has allowed a three-year augmentation to Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
“General Qamar Javed Bajwa is delegated Chief of Army Staff for another term of three years from the date of consummation of current residency,” a letter marked by the head administrator said.

The choice has been taken in perspective on the provincial security condition, the letter said.
General Bajwa took the direction of the military on November 29, 2016. He should resign in November.
The residency of armed force boss endures three years and it very well may be reached out for an extra three years just once.
Imran Khan, as a resistance government official, had said that judges and commanders ought to never be given expansions.
In a meeting with Express News a couple of years back, PM Khan had said that all establishments ought to be kept running as indicated by their laws.
“When you change the laws for an individual, it influences the whole organization,” he had said.
He further said that the commanders were not given expansions notwithstanding during the world war, including that difference in standards for an individual debilitates establishments.
In a tweet in January 2016, he lauded previous armed force boss for “can’t” to look for an augmentation.
The PM had said that “the country’s regard for General Raheel Sharif has gone up after his announcement declining to look for an augmentation.”
Safeguard examiner Brigadier (resigned) Haris Nawaz said the administration’s choice to concede an augmentation to General Bajwa is a “suitable” one. He said that the Pakistani military is assuming a significant job in talks between the Afghan Taliban and the US.
He commented that New Delhi’s hostility at the Line of Control and in India-held Kashmir could be the explanation for the augmentation.
Based on position, there are four officials who could’ve supplanted General Bajwa if his residency wasn’t broadened. This incorporates Strategic Command Division DG Lt Gen Sarfaraz Sattar, Chief of General Staff Lt General Nadeem Raza, Karachi Commander Lt General Humayun Aziz and Multan Commander Naeem Ashraf.
It has been seen that in the past the senior officials either took early retirement or finished their separate residencies.
Already, General (retd) Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has served two terms as the military boss from 2007 to 2013. His expansion was endorsed by previous PM Yousaf Raza Gillani.
