Sindh Education dept regularises 154 IT lecturers
Karachi: The Sindh Education Department on Thursday regularised 154 Information Technology (IT) lecturers who have to date been working ad-hoc. According to notification SO (G III)/E/L/IT/5-7/08, the education department made 154 ad-hoc IT teachers permanent and allocated Rs 184.5 million in its budget for their salaries. Thousands of ad-hoc lecturers were regularised in Punjab, NWFP and Balochistan while in Sindh, 330 ad-hoc lecturers have yet to be regularised. When contacted, education department officials said that the government is currently working on regularising the remaining lecturers. "It has been planned that the remaining 330 lecturers would be regularised through a bill in the next session of the Sindh Assembly," they added. According to a provision of the Sindh government, ad-hoc lecturers are entitled to salaries for only six months and after their ad-hoc period ends, they would not get paid until their service period is further extended. Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) Ad-hoc Lecturers Action Committee office-bearers Manzoor Kalhoro, Muhammad Chuttal and Ali Raza said that their ad-hoc period was completed in July 2008 and officially they are currently unemployed.

They were told that a summary was sent to the Sindh CM in October to extend their service period for another six months but there have been no developments since. "President Asif Ali Zardari directed party senior leader Taj Haider to take measures to regularise ad-hoc lecturers and release the stopped salaries," they stated. Haider wrote to the Sindh government and the education minister and apprised them of the president's directives and the lecturers have been paid their salaries but have not yet been regularised. Instead of extending their service period by six months, the office-bearers demanded that Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and Pir Mazharul Haq present a bill in the next Sindh Assembly session to regularise the ad-hoc lecturers. It is pertinent to mention that a bill to regularise ad-hoc professors at the Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College is expected to be presented in the upcoming Sindh Assembly session. Daily Times
