  1. I want to invite Chief Minister of Punjab’s attention regarding the proposed regularization of the Govt. employees in Punjab specially those selected through Punjab Public Service Commission. The matter has been fallen prey of Red strips.
    I am attaching a copy of a notification by S&GAD. Govt. of Punjab dated Nov 10, 2010, regarding regularization of the contract employees in 16 and above Scales, especially those selected through Punjab Public Service Commission. The commission’s screening of candidates is tough and off course on merit. It can be described by this example: In selection of Botany lecturers (in 2009), out of 2800 female candidates only 300 toppers were called for interview based upon the written exam and academic records. Then in interviews out of 300, only 26 candidates were offered a position as Lecturer on contract basis. (Success rate is 0.93 only, in this case). This tedious exercise took 2 prolonged years.
    Now, after issuance of the said notification (more than four months have been passed) the lecturers are still waiting for any progress in this regard. The Higher Education department is waiting for what? Through your reputed paper I want to remind authorities (CM Shahbaz Sharif sb and Secretary Higher Education) to issue orders to do it at earliest to dissolve the unrest. There are no two opinions that mental confidence and satisfaction is the key for motivation and performance.
    Moreover, Instead of any more expenses on the regularization of teachers/employees, Govt. of Punjab will have rather financial benefits as she has to pay less than now being paid as extra allowances due to contract policy. It is carefully estimated that on an average Govt. will save at least Rs.5000/per employee by regularizing them. In spite of expected cut in salaries, the employees strongly desire to be regularized (mainly due to sense of security) at earliest just like the school side teachers were done in 2010.

  2. It has been reported that Punjab Agriculture Department has completed the cases for regularizing the contract employees BS 16 and above as per Nov 2010 notification. The Higher Education Deptt. has still not invited the cases and has taken no initiatives in this regard. Irum

  6. TEVTA Punjab has been formed since 1999 as an autonomous body under the Govt. of the Punjab for Technical, Vocational and Commerce, Education.It has first induced teaching staff in 2003 but after passing 8 years, it has neither yet regularized its employees nor organized a proper salary structure according to Govt. Rules & Regulations, in-spite of the order of Supreme Court as well as High Court. Now Govt. of Punjab has also decided to regularized all remaining employees of Punjab. So it is our request to the Chief Minister and all other concerning authorities to make proper arrangements for Service Structure as well as regularization of Deprived TEVTA Contract employees.
