Punjab contract lecturers's services regularisation

653 lecturers regularised, 237 in waiting
Lahore, Aug 12: The Punjab higher education department has regularised the services of 653 contract lecturers, while the department is working actively to complete the record of remaining 237 lecturers for their regularisation in due course.

These 890 contract lecturers had completed their first five-year term and qualified for regularisation as per announcement made by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

This was announced at a news conference jointly addressed by excise and taxation minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman, holding the additional charge of education ministry, and higher education acting-secretary Ahad Khan Cheema at Darbar Hall, Punjab Civil Secretariat on Wednesday.

The Punjab higher education department is also moving a case to the finance department to remove disparity of the sanctioned posts under the four-tier formula. Currently, the department has 10,183 sanctioned posts of lecturers, 6,209 posts of assistant professors, 1,978 posts of associate professors and 152 posts of professors.

Of these 18,522 posts, the department has around 13,000 college teachers on its strength, while over 5,000 posts are lying vacant.

Cheema said the department had conducted a detailed exercise of collecting and assessing annual confidential reports (ACRs) and results in boards and university examinations so that only those lecturers whose performance remained satisfactory could be regularised.

When asked as to how the contract lecturers got their five-year contract renewed, if their performance was not satisfactory, the secretary said there was no proper system in place to monitor and evaluate their performance. He said the department could not even find some contract lecturers' ACRs during the last two months. "It seemed that there was no culture of preparing ACRs of contract lecturers," he added.

With regard to promotion aspects of regular college teachers, the education minister said the formalisation of four-tier formula would create some 994 posts for lecturers' promotion as assistant professors, 789 posts for promotion as associate professors and 58 posts for promotion as professors.

Minister Mujtaba said the chief minister had also formally approved various decisions, which he had taken after a meeting with schools and colleges teachers on June 18. He said the chief minister had approved that around 2,000 teachers would be selected every year on the basis of their all round performance and they would be awarded with bonus allowance of Rs50,000 in cash. In another scheme, the best teachers would be awarded with a five-marla plot. The policy of selecting a five-marla plot would be determined shortly, he added.

To another question, the acting-secretary said the best 2,000 teachers would be selected this year on the basis of their performance. He said teachers' performance would be evaluated on the basis of their workload, students' results, role in administration or in administrative committees, role in promoting co-curricular activities, respective teachers' personal development with regard to participating in seminars, workshops, trainings, study of their relevant subjects as well as other subjects etc. The teachers' performance would be assessed through multiple sources, including self-assessment, peer assessment, students' evaluation and principals' report.

The minister said the members of the committee formed by the chief minister also decided that future promotions of college teachers would be linked with their performance. However, the department would consider ground realities while assessing performance of teachers serving in urban colleges and far flung areas, colleges have intake of good students and poor students, respectively.

"its true that lecturers have been regularized but many are not regularized, especially those who were on study leave to do PhD or M Phil, as they were on study leave without pay, therefore leave period is not considered in service. its utter disappointment for those lecturers who have been struggling to enhance their qualification. its a lesson for them that never ever again even think of higher education"

"I am a Lecturer (Botany) on contract basis with one year service. Luckily, I have a fully funded scholarship offer abroad for PhD studies.But So for I have known, there is no provision of study leave to the contract lecturers. There are a meager number of PhD qualified teachers in Punjab Higher Education sector. Off course it is the policy makers who do not care for these aspects. Any how If some one has information about that (some notification or any example), please contact me and share with me."

Cheema said the department had recently moved a summary to the chief minister for taking action against the respective principals for showing poor results.
