Teachers demand 100% raise in salaries
Rawalpindi: The Punjab Teachers Association (PTA) and staff members of academic institutions across the province have decided to launch a movement on Thursday to mark their protest against federal and provincial governments for failing to meet their demands regarding 100 per cent raise in salaries and withdrawal of a proposed plan for retiring senior primary school teachers.

The three-week protest drive, continuing till May 13, will kick off from a protest demonstration in front of the Rawalpindi Press Club on Thursday.

Punjab Teachers Association Central President Haji Ghulam Mohiuddin, Punjab Teachers Association Chief Organiser Chaudhry Ahmed Ali, Punjab Teachers Association Senior Vice President Malik Sajjad Ali and Punjab Teachers Association Vice President Imtiaz Ahmed Abbasi said that the protest movement includes rallies, demonstrations and meetings besides pen down strike in government academic institutions. Till then if the demands of Punjab teachers are not met and the related government officials do not hold negotiations with them for meeting their demands, the future line of strategy would be adopted in a general body meeting.

Ghulam Mohiuddin said that the government endeavours are nothing but total disgrace and insult to the teaching community. He also expressed his resentment and anguish over spending billions of rupees on enforcement of English medium school system in Urdu medium institutions and holding of training courses for schoolteachers.

Chaudhry Ahmed Ali, Malik Sajjad and Imtiaz Abbasi, in their remarks, expressed their anger over the system of recruiting teachers in educational institutions. "The appointments are not made on merit, but political influence plays a major role in the recruitment process," they alleged. They stressed on the need for appointing teachers-instructors on merit. They demanded upgradation of primary schoolteachers who are postgraduate and BEd to Basic Pay Scale 14. They also demanded that the Basic Pay Scale of elementary school teachers should be 16 and senior schoolteachers should be promoted to BPS 17.

They said that besides announcing additional educational allowance, the government should introduce a health insurance policy for teachers instead of giving them meagre medical allowance in their salaries. Similarly, the group insurance policy should be converted into life insurance policy, the association representatives demanded.

The assistant director (administration and general) at the executive district officer's office, Khalid Javed Rehan, while commenting on the issue, backed the teachers' community. "The entire staff is behind teachers. Their demands are genuine, particularly increase in their emoluments by 100 per cent. The government has constituted a Pay and Pension Commission, which would give its recommendations in June. While its recommendations would not be enforced before December 2010. The teachers and other staff cannot wait any longer and their demands should be implemented in the budget for the fiscal year 2010-2011," he added.

Executive District Officer (Education) Malik Mohammad Ashraf was not present in his office for comments. He even did not respond to the calls made on his mobile phone by this correspondent.

France to assist in selecting HEC scholars
Islamabad: Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the Embassy of France signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Tuesday, whereby the Embassy will facilitate HEC in the selection of candidates for the award of HEC scholarships and training in French Language in Pakistan.

According to a press release, Dr Sohail Naqvi, Executive Director HEC, and Daniel Jouannueau, Ambassador of France to Pakistan, signed the agreement at HEC Secretariat. Dr Javaid R Laghari, Chairman HEC, presided over the ceremony.

Speaking on the occasion, the ambassador said this is a joint investment of the governments of Pakistan and France, adding that the HEC scholars in France enjoy the same facilities as the French students. He appreciated the performance of the Pakistani scholars, studying in different universities of France.

Dr Javaid Laghari said in addition to strengthening the human resource, the programme is a great source of cultural exchange between the two countries. He said on average, 100 HEC scholars would return from France every year, adding that the same number of scholars would leave for France each year in the coming years.

The chairman emphasised that the research done by our scholars must be transferred to commercial and industrial sectors, which would definitely help in improving the overall economic condition of the country. "We are also looking forward to enhanced collaborative research between the scholars and universities of both the countries," he added.

Dr Sohail Naqvi said this agreement is yet another milestone in the longstanding relationship of HEC and the French government, adding that the Pakistani scholars are studying in the best institutions of France. He said the cooperation began by sending nine scholars in 2003-04 and gradually increased to around 100 students a year. "To date, HEC has sent 564 scholars to reputable universities of France for PhD studies," he said.
