I.T.Teachers(515 in punjab) jobs by Federal and Punjab
T.T.Singh: We were recruited as I.T.Teachers(515 in punjab) by Federal and Punjab Govt on 50% share basis.It was a three years Project and it was launched in all provinces at the same time.According to the project specifications, all the I.T.Teachers would be regularised in their respective scales after completion of the three years project and it would be transfered from development to non-development side.All the other provinces Regularised I.T.Teachers in B.S.17(we have notifications) .In Punjab the story is quite different.The punjab Govt extended our contract after a hard struggle but we are awarded B.S.16 instead of B.S.17.We have been receiving all the facilities of B.S.17 for three years.

It is a great example of unjustice and discrimination.I Dear sir,can you imagine we have not been receiving our salaries since 11 months.It is really terrible and we are in miserable conditions.our salary budget has been released to all the districts of punjab on 23rd Feb. but we r still salaryless.Now we cant afford any delay.We have already disgraced in the worst fashion.We had been borrowing money from our relatives and friends but now they are reluctant.As a result of this we lost our self-respect. We are all Master Degree holders(M.C.S) from prominent universities. I can,t explain my personal story of the last year because I have lost my father two months ago.The delay in our salary is unbearable now,it is an extreme point of our patience.we are really helpless now a days.

The higher authorities cant understand our feelings,you are the person who can understand andconvey our feelings to C.M.Punjab on priority basis.The above facts is really a question mark on the Chief Ministers vision regarding Education. Sir, we can getsuccess in both the worlds by helping such people as we are during these days. I am quite hopeful from your side.Please sir try to make sure the payment of our salaries within a week. May You live in your desired conditions forever. With best Regards. Muhammad Imran I.T.Teacher, T.T.Singh,
