Executive Summary

Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) is the custodian of the sensitive border management duties with India. In addition, it was also assigned and credited with effective controlling of law and order situation in the economic Hub of Pakistan; i.e. Karachi under the Government of Sindh notification; granting special powers to the Rangers in the light of the Pakistan Protection Ordinance approved by the National Assembly, since 2013. These responsibilities being diverse in nature, envisage need of an efficient training system that can transform raw civilian youth into professionally competent soldiers I officers. In addition, a fair and transparent career progression system is also required to ensure a continuous flow of future leadership; who are equipped with required skills to effectively handle the internal and external challenges associated with their jobs. This study aimed to analyze the existing training and career progression regimes of Pakistan Rangers(Sindh) with the primary objective of suggesting viable measures for enhancing the effectiveness of these systems on the basis of their comparison with systems of Pakistan Army and Pakistan Rangers(Punjab). During the research, a number of shortfalls of Sindh Rangers training and career progression systems; such as more bias of the regimes towards direct entry cadre and lesser towards soldier cadre and training at inappropriate service bracket, were observed. The data collected from various resources have been analyzed in one of the chapters and various deductions have been derived from them. Basing on these deductions, certain recommendations including the revival of training culture at Wing and Sector level and better talent management by introducing reserved seats for Soldiers for officer cadre have been made. Recommendations proffered are based on hard facts, major ones includes balancing bias of training among all ranks, reforms in Soldiers' Training and Career Progression regimes, revival of training culture at Wing and Sector level, Career courses in early bracket of service, training in manageable size groups, broadening promotion base for NCOs and soldiers earmarking reserved seats in higher cadre, rationalization of Internal Security commitments and capacity building of Training Center and School. It is recommended that the study scope may further be extended and a complete review of existing syllabic of all courses may also be carried out with a view to upgrade and bring those at par to existing and upcoming challenges and requirements.
