100 BISE contract employees resign in 12 months

LAHORE, Aug 4: More than 100 Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Lahore employees, who were on contract, have resigned in the past year because they were not regularised.

More than 1,000 employees work with BISE Lahore, out of which 400 employees have been on contract for several years. Being on contract means that these employees are not given allowances that the Education Department gives to regular employees.

Haji Muhammad Dogar, BISE Lahore secretary, said more than 100 employees had resigned in one year. He said the situation was disheartening for the board because its work was sensitive and needed employees. He said the government should regularise contractual employees so that the board's work could improve.

Dr Zakariya Butt, BISE Lahore chairman, said several contractual employees had been demanding regular employment for several years. He said the board was trying to regularise them and had sent their applications to Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi. He said the chief minister had set up a committee under the supervision of the law minister to discuss the case.

Law minister Basharat Raja said the committee was working on the case and that he would soon forward his report to the chief minister. He said he favour the regularisation of contractual employees.

It was learnt that most contract employees have been in such a state for more than 10 years and because of their meagre salaries face a tough time.

Mohsin Hussain said he was appointed a junior clerk 12 years ago and was still on contract. He said he was promised regularisation, but the government had not acted upon it. Saqib Ali said he was a graduate and was working on a contract for the past 11 years. He said he had started working on daily wages and was now earning Rs 5,500. He said allowances such as house rent were not part of his pay and that regular employees were getting all basic allowances.

Muhammad Aslam Gujjar, Employees Welfare Association BISE Lahore president, said governments had several times promised regularising contractual employees, but authorities had still not issued the order. He said the association had protested, but the government also ignored it.

Muhammad Zahid Qureshi, Employees Welfare Federation BISE Lahore secretary general, said the education minister had promised regularising all BISE Lahore employees, but after eight months have passed no progress was made. Daily times
