Kayani is set to retire on Nov 28, 2010. There were speculations on whether the government led by the Pakistani People's Party(PPP) will grant him an extension.
The sources said that either Kayani or PM Yousaf Raza Gilani have not mentioned about their intensions to extend the tenure.
Gilani had recently said that his government will take a decision in this matter, when the time comes.
The senior commanders in the Army also appreciated Kayani for the role taken by him to enhancing the image of the armed forces since he took over the post, 29 months ago.
