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, Turkey and a handful of Maj. Gens.[46]

During the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War, the number of Lt Gens reached to 13 ; four were posted at the GHQ/CMLA HQ, one at the CENTO HQ in Ankara, Turkey, four were corps commanders, four were governors under the martial law. General Yahya Khan was the Commander-in-Chief, Lt General Abdul Hamid Khan was the deputy C-in-C, 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).The GHQ posts of QMG and AG was under the rank of Major-Generals.

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: 2 February 2002 (27), 25 January 2003 (19), 17 January 2004 (18), 8 January 2005 (26), 5 January 2006 (29), 18 January 2007 (29), 10 August 2008 (26), 9 May 2009 (25), 11 March 2010 (29), 16 November 2010 (23), 10 August 2011 (19), 14 July 2012 (19), 8 March 2013 (29), 12 February 2014 (30) and 4 February 2015 (28).

Additionally, the seniority for major-generals is ascertained from the bi-annual military award recipients of Hilal-e-Imtiaz (Military); first on 23 March (Pakistan Day) and then on 14 August (Independence Day).
