FDE teachers still waiting for new notification
Islamabad: Mentioning wrong date in the notification regarding one grade upgradation of 1,046
teachers working under Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) was not a
mistake but a deliberate step that is why the officials of Capital
Administration and Development Division (CADD) are still hesitant to
issue revised notification for implementation of this package from
January 2011, the sources said on Monday.
Joint Secretary of CADD
Prof. Rafique Tahir some days back informed that the notification
regarding upgradation of FDE teachers (BPS-16 to BPS-17) wrongly carried
the date of January 5, 2012 instead of January 1, 2011 for
implementation of the package so a new notification would be issued on
"It was not a typing mistake but a deliberate
effort to get to know whether the teachers would think it advisable to
get satisfied or raise voice against this violation of the directives of
the prime minister," the sources said.
According to the official
data the government on October 14, 2011 has approved an automatic time
scale promotional formula regarding the teachers' promotion working in
BPS 17 - 20 in line with the announcement made by the prime minister on
Salam Teachers Day.
The formula guaranteed a promotion to all the
teachers working in federal government schools, colleges and Islamabad
Model schools and colleges, next scale after a specific period.
assurance notification issued on October 14, 2011 stated that "The time
scale formula would be adopted for implementation of the Prime
Minister's directives ... for teachers in BS-16 and above under the
Federal Directorate of Education w.e.f 01-01-2011."
pointed out that Trained Under Graduate Teachers (TUGTs) in Grade 14
would be promoted as Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) in Grade 16 with
six years service experience. Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) in grade
16 would be promoted in grade 17 on the basis of 10 years service
experience in the same grade. Teachers in Grade 17 with five years of
experience would be promoted in Grade 18. Teachers in Grade 18 would be
promoted in Grade 19 with seven years experience in case of direct
appointment and five years experience if they are promotees.
sources claimed that when FDE moved file in which it insisted to give
one-grade promotion to those teachers working in Grade 17 to Grade 20,
the Establishment Division and Finance Wing both vehemently opposed this
move and now CADD officials are trying to give promotion to Grade 17
from start of this year with an aim to avoid financial burden and ensure
seniority of those teachers already promoted last year.
Joint Secretary Prof. Rafique Tahir told this scribe that administration
wing is dealing with the issue of revised notification regarding
upgradation of FDE teachers from Grade 16 to Grade 17 and it is expected
that it would sort out the modalities at the earliest.

without the 'Form-B' but they will have to submit it before the
announcement of the result.
