6,000 internees not paid emoluments since June this year
Rawalpindi: More than 6,000 internees associated with education department and government schools are facing numerous problems in getting their outstanding dues for the last three months.
Since the devolution of Education Ministry under the 18th Amendment to provinces these 6,000 internees have not been paid a penny and have to visit their respective offices or schools at their personal expense without getting any assistance from the government.
Talking to this scribe a number of internees claimed that the last time they were paid any kind of emolument was in May this year and since then they have not received a single penny.
According to our contract we were paid Rs10,000 per month and for the last three months we are not getting anything, they said.
They said that every time they demand their emoluments, they are given one reason or the other for non-clearance of their dues.
They said that according to their contract they couldn t leave their internship and join other department at their own. They appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to intervene in the matter and resolve it.
On the other hand, Riffat Mahmood, Superintendent of education department and Director of Human Resource who deals with the issues of the internees agreed to the fact that the emoluments to the students doing internships have not been cleared for the last three months.
He said that payments to the internees have been made till June 30, this year. However, he was not sure whether the remaining outstanding dues would also be cleared or not. The concerned district administrations could tell the exact position in this regard, he remarked.
Anyhow, when contacted Commissioner (Rawalpindi) Captain (r)
Zahid Saeed he said, that the emoluments to the internees were not being cleared because the Punjab government has ended the policy of facilitating students under internship course all over the province.
The course was initiated by the federal government according to which emoluments worth Rs10,000 were paid to the internees under National Internship Programme (NIP). However, after the devolution of the Ministry of Education under the 18th amendment the education sector has come under the hold of the provincial governments. Now the provincial government have disowned this policy from June.
The emoluments to the internees who were appointed before the devolution plan have been cleared till June 30, this year. When the course has been abolished altogether, it is not possible for us to pay the remaining emoluments to the internees, the commissioner clearly stated.
The government has abandoned the course and no further payments would be made to them, he concluded.
