Promotion for teachers without designation
Rawalpidi: The Higher Education Department of Punjab has recently issued a notification
promoting 55 female assistant professors in the next grade but did not
allot them new designation, it has been learnt.
In its December 13 notification available with Dawn the
department upgraded female teachers from BPS-18 to BPS-19, but did not
promote them from assistant to associate professors, apparently owing to
clerical mistake. But the promoted teaches are worried as the
authorities have not issued any corrigendum.
"Majority of teachers had been waiting for over 15 years for
promotion to next grade. Now they had to wait for some more time to get
official designation of associate professor," said a female teacher,
requesting anonymity. She said the teachers were eagerly waiting for
"official notification" to assign them new designations.
On the other hand, the department issued notification for the
promotion of 25 male assistant professors as associate professors
without any mistake. Director Colleges Rawalpindi Dr Mohammad Ashraf
said the clerical staff would have made the mistake, adding that it
could be rectified easily, though he had not seen the official

sincere efforts should be made to raise the standard of education at
all levels, particularly in the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan.
annual report of FPSC 2009 presented in the National Assembly on Friday
stated that during the year 2009, 133 posts in the BS-16-20 could not
be filled as suitable candidates with required qualifications were not
available or the persons having such qualifications did not apply.
stated that one reason for this could be that better qualified
candidates are engaged by private/corporate sectors on higher salaries.
It recommended that if the government desired to attract qualified
candidates to the civil service then their pay package and facilities
needed to be enhanced and kept under constant revision.
report, already presented to President Asif Ali Zardari by Chairman FPSC
Justice (Retd) Rana Bhagwandas, was tabled in the National Assembly on
Friday. The report also recommended to the government to endeavour to
have full strength of FPSC members to ensure that recruitments are
finalised in the shortest possible time.
The report showed that
84 percent candidates in every day science, 45 percent each in Islamiyat
and Pakistan Studies got above 60 percent marks. In 'Current Affairs'
and 'Essay', 1 percent and 7 percent candidates secured above 60 percent
The analysis showed that performance of
qualified candidates in written examination for the CSS in the subject
of every day science, Islamiyat and Pakistan Affairs was much better
than other compulsory subjects. The report pointed out that candidates
were weak in subjects like English, history, economics and International
In the Essay paper, majority of the candidates
lacked the natural flare of writing an English essay, not knowing the
basic structure and using faulty language and wrong idioms. In English
(PrÈcis & Composition) it was observed the basic knowledge of the
language was deplorable, as majority of candidates did not understand
the simple mechanics of paragraph and prÈcis writing. The choice of
style and lexical items did not match the contents.
Knowledge-1 (Every Day Science): General performance of about 40-45
percent candidates was well, giving conceptual answers to some extent
covering all aspects of microscopic details of the question while 20 to
25 percent candidates gave same traditional answers taken from
help/guide books whereas remaining candidates did not show any interest.
(Current Affairs): Majority of candidates failed to understand the
contents of questions and consequently detracted while most of the
candidates lacked analytical ability and followed descriptive method in
their narrations whereas very small number of candidates secured more
than 50 percent marks in objective type questions which manifested their

that the performance of candidates was deplorable as out of total 261
candidates who appeared in the subject, 222 (85%) got below 32% marks,
36 (14%) obtained 33-59% marks while 3 (1%) candidates secured between
Economics-11: The performance of candidates was
quite disappointing with poor English, lack of general knowledge and
ignorance of the basic concepts of the subject. Most of the answers were
irrelevant and the candidates were found in the habit of writing
stories instead of addressing the questions to the point and, in
addition, majority of the candidates did not even understand the
questions. Hardly 4 to 6 percent candidates performed well while
performance in objective part of the paper was quite poor which showed
traditional 'Ratta' system prevailing in our educational system.
Business Administration, it states that the overall performance of the
candidates was unsatisfactory. The data showed that 63 percent
candidates who appeared in the examination were unemployed, whereas 11
percent candidates belonged to the teaching profession, 7 percent held
administrative jobs, 5 percent related to Armed Forces/clerical jobs and
3 percent had accounting job.
In final selection unemployed
candidates got 51 percent jobs, teaching jobs 11 percent, accounts job 3
percent and candidates holding administrative jobs got the share of 15
percent which showed better performance of the candidates who had
administrative jobs, followed by Engineering/Medical job holders.

Officers' Mess on Friday, says a press release. Minister for Foreign
Affairs Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi was the chief guest on the
occasion. He awarded certificates to the graduating students.
addressing at the occasion the chief guest said, "The womenfolk have a
vital role to play in the betterment of any society. The saying, 'Hands
that rock the cradle, rule the world' is an apt description of women's
contribution in shaping the destiny of a nation. In fact, no society can
afford to ignore women that account for half of its population. You are
well aware that in our eastern culture, girl is destined to adopt to a
new environment after her marriage. Many a time she has to face
altogether different world. I am confident that an institution like
yours can provide valuable guidance to our girls as they move from one
environment to another, marked with independence and responsibility.
From this perspective, I consider the contribution of the Finishing
School very significant and far-reaching."
The PAF Finishing
School, a grooming academy for women, is the first of its kind in the
country, a step by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) towards the promotion of
education and literacy among the women in the country.
