During the 1965 Indo-Pakistani War, there were only two Lt. Gens in the Army; Bakhtiar Rana the Commander I Corps and Altaf Qadir who was on deputation to CENTO, Turkeymarker and a handful of Maj. Gens.

During the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War, the number of Lt Gens reached 12 while there were two full generals; five were posted at the GHQ/CMLA HQ, one at the CENTO HQ in Ankara, Turkey, four were corps commanders, and the rest of four were governors under the martial law. General Yahya Khan was the Commander-in-Chief, General Abdul Hamid Khan was the Chief of Staff (COS), Lt Gen S.G.M.M. Peerzada was the PSO CMLA HQ in Rawalpindi, Lt Gen Gul Hassan Khan was the Chief of General Staff (CGS), and Lt Gen Khawaja Wasiuddin was the Master-General of Ordnance (MGO). Lt Gen Muhammad Shariff was sent as Permanent Representative to the CENTO HQ in Turkey. Eastern Command was under Lt Gen A.A.K. Niazi, I Corps was under Lt Gen Irshad Ahmad Khan, II Corps was under Lt Gen Tikka Khan, IV Corps was under Lt Gen Bahadur Sher. On the other hand, governor Punjab was Lt Gen Attiqur Rahman, governor Sindh was Lt Gen Rakhman Gul, governor NWFP was Lt Gen K.M. Azhar, and governor Balochistan was Lt Gen Riaz Hussain.


All the names in the list are extracted from open sources (which in turn rely on Pakistan Army's ISPR press releases), therefore the above names might not correlate with the actual current posts of the commanders. The promotions from brigadiers to major-generals are done in groups once every year. The links from 2002 and onwards are: 2002 (27), 2003 (19), 2004 (18), 2005 (26), 2006 (29), 2007 (29), 2008 (26), and 2009 (24)

Additionally, the seniority for major-generals is ascertained from the bi-annual military award recipients of Hilal-e-Imtiaz ; first on 23rd March (Pakistan Day) and then on 14th August (Independence Day). The links from 2002 and onwards are: 2002 March, 2003 March, 2003 August, 2004 March, 2004 August, 2005 March, 2005 August, 2006 March, 2006 August, 2007 March, 2007 August, 2008 March, 2008 August, 2009 March, and 2009 August.
