In 20 days, Court Orders Sindh Government to Encourage Grade 17-18 Lecturers

Within twenty days, the Sindh High Court (SHC) directed the provincial government to allow lecturers in grades 17 and 18.

A petition against the Government of Sindh for not granting scales and promotions to over 12,000 professors and lecturers was filed by the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA), which was heard on Tuesday by the SHC Court, Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar.

During the hearing, the Secretary of schools informed the court that the provincial government is within the process of formulating a policy for the promotion and time scales of the concerned lecturers.

“Give us fifteen days to finish the paperwork for lecturers of Grades 17 and 18,” he said.

However, Justice Amjad Ali Sahito stated that the lecturers are demanding promotions despite the unsatisfactory quality of education being imparted.

“Pick any college from the province and appearance at the results of the scholars,” he remarked.

The Secretary of Colleges added that while the provincial government is ready to support the lecturers, it needs them to honestly and responsibly conduct their duties.
