FDE teachers promotions | IIU business plan contest

FDE teachers promotions hit snags
Islamabad, April 23: The up-gradation of teachers under the directives of Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on Teachers Day hits snags because the departmental promotion committee devolved after the devolution of the Education Ministry.

According to well placed sources, the issue regarding one grade up-gradation of teachers, which was apparently close to be resolved, has lingered on as the relevant ministry has been devolved.

The departmental promotion committee, a department that is supposed to look after the promotion matters of the teachers, was also dissolved which further delayed process of the promotion of teachers. A summery to constitute the new committee has been moved after which one could hope that the promotion of teachers would take place in line with the teachers package announced by the PM, the source said.

It is pertinent to mention here that it was actually the delay in implementation of teachers package that Federal Directorate of Education (DG) Shaheen Khan has been removed from her post and the new charge has been given to Chaudhary Nazir Hussain.

The teachers demanded appointment of a permanent and professionally competent DG for the FDE as they were extremely disappointed by the unprofessional attitude of the DG and wanted her immediate removal from a very important post. However, the new DG who has been temporarily placed as FDE DG didn t show any notable progress on the issue so far.

Federal Government Teachers Association (FGTA) President Azhar Mahmood Awan said that the whole teachers community was having high hopes with the new management. We believe that under the leadership of FDE DG Chaudhary Nazir Hussain things may come back on track, he said while adding that his actions regarding restructuring of the FDE are also highly appreciated by the teachers community.

He said they were also having hopes with the newly appointed Secretary CAD Division Junaid Iqbal and Professor Muhammad Rafique Tahir, Joint Secretary (Edu/establishment) CAD division. We have full faith in the professional competency of the newly appointed management and hope that the implementation of teachers package would not take any longer, he said.

CAD Division Joint Secretary Rafique Tahir said that approval has already been given for the promotion of scale 9 to 14 and scale 14 to 16 of the teachers. There is no problem in the promotion of teachers of grade 9 to 14. All we need to do is to change the rules to implement what has been approved, he said.

Tahir, however, said that promotion of teachers from grade 16 onwards would take time as a summery regarding their promotion has been sent to Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani. A summery regarding promotion has been sent to PM after approval of the Establishment Division and Finance Division. We are hopeful that the issue would be resolved in near future, he said.
