Sindh Senior Minister for Education, Pir Mazharul Haq told the Sindh Assembly Friday that he has issued directives to his department officials to cancel all out-of-turn promotions of teachers that were made without the departmental promotion committee during the previous government.
“I gave the orders on day one but they were not implemented upon and now I have strictly directed the concerned officials to cancel all such promotions,” he said while replying a question of Humera Alwani during question hour.
Alwani wanted to know the district-wise number of out-of-turn promotions of teachers without the departmental promotion committee during the tenure of the previous government and whether the government intends to cancel them.
The minister said that as reported by EDO (education), there were 93 out-of-turn promotions granted in Dadu, 17 in Shikarpur and one in Sukkur, while there were no such cases in other districts.
He said the present government, immediately after coming into power, ordered to cancel all such illegal promotions. However, some of these teachers challenged the orders in courts and secured a stay against the withdrawal of their promotions.
He said additional advocate general has been directed to get such stay orders vacated from the courts.
Replying to a question of Nadeem Ahmed Bhutto, the minister pointed out that only 33 colleges are headed by principals of lower grades owing to a shortage of BS-19 officers. However, 395 officers have recently been promoted to BS-19 and hence the department is working to replace the lower grade principals with officers of appropriate grades in the concerned districts.
Replying to a question by Syeda Marvi Rashdi, the minister said out of the 1,543 unregistered private schools functioning in the province, 967 schools have so far been registered, whereas notices to 576 schools have been issued under Sindh Private Educational Institutions Regulation and Control Ordinance 2001, Amended Act 2003 and Rules 2005. agencies Daily times
