CDGK teachers waiting for promotion since 2005
Karachi: Promotion of several hundreds schoolteachers working under the administrative control of the City District Government Karachi (CDGK) has been pending since 2005 and the officials concerned seemed to have shelved their cases for unknown reasons.

Inquiries made in this regard showed that more than 500 junior schoolteachers (JSTs) and high schoolteachers (JSTs) had been promoted to their next higher grades by the city government's human resource department on the orders of the then district officer, Tauseef Zafar, in 2005.

However, the orders were kept in abeyance by the then city nazim, Niamatullah Khan, after receiving complaints that some of these teachers were not entitled to a promotion and had managed to get their names included in the merit list either on political grounds or by using unfair means.

Sources in the CDGK education department said that more than four years had elapsed since the promotion was granted but the fixing of their salaries according to their new grade was still pending. Regarding the doubtful cases, the sources said that the number of such cases was very small while most of the teachers were promoted purely on merit.

The genuinely promoted teachers have been running from pillar to post to get their salaries fixed as their entitlement ever since the orders were passed.

The irony of the fact is that the files of most of these male and female teachers were "missing" from the offices concerned.

Normally, the record is maintained at the offices of the EDO of education, additional district officers of education, district officer of local bodies and the CDGK finance department.

A number of the aggrieved teachers informed that they had been visiting all these offices almost every fortnight since 2005 to inquire about their cases but the officials concerned had always been telling them that the files were missing or the cases were pending action.

Terming their claim of the files being not traceable a lame excuse, the affected teachers argued that the teachers had been shown their files and also given the photocopies of the documents that not only contained all relevant information but also the diary numbers, through which the files could be traced out easily.

They appealed to the city nazim to intervene in the matter and help get the issue resolved. Dawn
