administration says that the government has not released the increased grant,
therefore, the increase in salaries could not be released to officers. However,
over 1,700 other university employees from BPS-1 to BPS-16 are being paid the 20
per cent raise.
There are some 349 teachers and over 500 other officers
working in the university in scales BPS-17 and above, and not a single officer
has been paid the 20 per cent increase that was announced in the budget last
IIU Academic Staff Association President Dr. Bashir said that hundreds of officers of the university have not been paid and when they
contact the university administration they are told that mega projects are being
carried on in the university and it is short of budget to give the 20 per cent
increase in salaries to officers.
He said that the employees of BPS-1 to
BPS-16 have been given the increase while teachers and other officers are not
being entertained, due to which they are facing problems, as everyone in the
country is equally suffering from the price hike and inflation.
the teachers said that on one hand, the university is inducting lecturers and
professors on contract basis while on the other it is not releasing the 20 per
cent increase in salaries of the serving teaching staff and other officers. He
said that 64 out of 65 public sector universities have already granted the raise
but the IIU has not offered any increase to its officers, he said.
spokesman Muzamil Hussain, when contacted, confirmed that the
university has not given the 20 per cent increase to teachers and other officers
because it has not received the additional grant from the government. To a
query, he said, the IIU is not getting enough grant to pay the increased
salaries to officers and teachers. He added that it is mentioned in the salary
slips being issued to officers that they would be paid the increased 20 per cent
as soon as the university would get the additional grant. The News
