Extension in services of ad-hoc lecturers proposed
Karachi: The Sindh Education Department proposed to extend the services of ad-hoc lecturers by three months.

The proposal was given by Sindh Education Secretary Rizwan Memon to the ministers after Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq approved the regularisation of the ad-hoc lecturers after they cleared the public service examination, a high Sindh Education Department official said.

"Memon suggested that after the completion of this three month period, the ad-hoc lecturers have to pass the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) exams or they will be terminated by the department," he added.

The issue of ad-hoc lecturers came into the light after these lecturers were roughed up by the police while they were protesting for regularisation outside the Sindh Assembly building during its session on Monday.

Over 500 ad-hoc lecturers were appointed by the previous government after they passed a test and an interview conducted by a private institute. However even the previous government did not regularise them.

On the matter of service period extension, a summary SO (HE-I) Misc244/06, dated 16 October, has been sent to Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Qaim Ali Shah for approval. "The CM has made it clear that this is the last time the service period of the lecturers will be extended," the official revealed. He added that the CM stated that the lecturers should not expect more leniencies from the government and they should pass the SPSC exams.

Haq was also determined on the fact that the lecturers be regularised provided they clear the SPSC test. He adopted the same opinion when a delegation of ad-hoc lecturers, led by Shafaq Usman and accompanied by Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association Information Secretary Prof Iftikhar Azami, met him on Tuesday. Sindh Home Minister Zulfiqar Mirza also attended the meeting.

In the meeting Haq said that the government is doing its best to facilitate the ad-hoc lecturers. "The SPSC date for receiving the lecturer applications is over," he said, however he added that their tests will be specially conducted to regularize them. The delegation stressed upon the need to resolve the issue amicably so that the future of the lecturers should not be affected. Daily Times
