Adhoc teachers wait for salaries
Karachi: The government wants to flourish private coaching centres in the
province hence more than 500 adhoc college lecturers are still waiting for their
salaries despite of their job regularization. The Sindh Education Department had
stopped their salaries nearly seven months ago without any intimation or reason.
Conversely, as many as five associate professors have been retired with the hope
of getting promotion in 20 grade from 19.
Central Leader of Sindh Professors
and Lecturers Association (SPLA) Prof Iftikhar Azmi expressed these views on
Sunday. He said that families of ad-hoc college
lecturers are suffering from severe financial crunch, while they were getting
income from coaching and tuitions.
He said, "Around six years have been
passed but there is no up-gradation of teachers on the basis of fourtier
formula. On the other hand, in Punjab teachers are getting promotions annually
on the same formula. Around 1,048 promotions in all grades are pending. The
government has failed to resolve the issues of college teachers and educational
institutions in the province."
It is to be noted here that the last meeting
of Provincial Selection Board-One, held on 12 November, 2009, had been ended
without giving 20-grade promotion to any single deserving teacher, while around
80 college teachers, waiting for their promotion. Prof Azmi said that the
education department had not submitted cases in the PSB-One meeting, chaired by
Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and well attended by 12 secretaries of
different sectors, including Sindh Chief Secretary, a source said.
meeting ended without giving promotion to any deserving teacher from grade 19 to
20 due to the inefficiency of the Sindh Education Department, who did not
submitted the cases in the high level meeting.
He said that five associate
professors had been retired while out of them 56 were male and 49 female. The nation

According to sources, influential businessmen are already
occupying the Ayaz Samoon Nursing School. There are four large warehouses at the
school that have been occupied for decades.
During 1973 and 74, the then
provincial government had asked the warehouses owners to shift someplace else
and was also prepared to pay them compensation in advance.
warehouse owners refused to budge and continued occupying the warehouses even
after accepting and receiving the compensation money from the government, thus
making their occupation illegal.
Presently, the warehouse owners have
once again refused to vacate the premises and demanded compensation money
The SBBMC administration had recently invited applications for the
posts of professors, associate and assistant professors to complete the teaching
faculty, but received no applications as it offered less emolument and perks in
comparison with the private sector.
However, hundreds of applicants
rushed to catch the post of demonstrators but just 200 were issued interview
letters to select the appropriate candidates for only 30 seats.
to sources privy to the situation, unless stern measures were taken against the
influential mafia controlling the premises of the nursing school, the fate of
the SBBMC would remain a dream that is unlikely to come true.
