IT teachers unpaid for six months

TOBA TEK SINGH, Sept 12: Dozens of information technology (IT) teachers and laboratory in-charges at government high schools of the district have not been paid salaries for the last six months.

A group of teachers told newsmen here on Tuesday that they had been recruited on a contract basis and last time they were paid salaries after six months.

When contacted, Executive District Officer (education) Malik Bashir Ahmad said he was unaware of the issue as IT teachers were not paid from the budget of education department. They were paid from a separate allocation, he said.

Meanwhile, a source told this correspondent that funds for the provision of equipment and computers to schools were provided by the World Bank while the amount under salaries head was equally shared by the federal and provincial governments. Dawn
