The Sindh Assembly’s special committee on contractual employees recommended on Monday that the government grant permanent jobs to nearly 2,000 employees of the National Programme for Improvement of Water Courses (NPIWC) and 24 lecturers of the education department.
A bill dealing with the issue will be tabled at the next provincial assembly session. While talking to The Express Tribune, Bachal Shah, head of the committee, said that the committee would also look into granting permanent jobs to employees of the population department and the National Commission for Human Development (NCHD).
Mir Waqar, leader of the NPIWC employees association, said that nearly 1,370 temporary and 550 daily wage workers, including sub-engineers, water management officers, office assistants and account officers had been demanding permanent jobs since the last five years.
“Sindh is the only province that has not given permanent jobs to NPIWC employees,” said Waqar.
