There is growing resentment among teachers at federal government colleges over the third postponement of a meeting of the departmental promotion committee.
The meeting was due on March 17. The first DPC was to meet on February 3, and was then deferred to February 8, according to a news release on Tuesday.
Federal college teachers are awaiting promotion from BPS-17 to BPS-18. A meeting among teachers and Federal Government College Teachers Association officials was held at the Islamabad Model College for Boys, H-9, in which they expressed their grievances over the postponement.
H-9 College President Prof Habibullah said a large number of officers of other departments are usually promoted twice a year, but when it comes to the promotion of teachers, the authorities show apathy.
“I shall take up the issue relating to promotions with the CADD secretary, and demand that he take personal interest in ensuring that the DPC meeting is held before March 31,” said FGCTA President Prof Manzar Zafar Kazmi.
The teachers claim that promotions at federal government colleges are made at a slower rate than at other institutions, noting that many are made after the lapse of 15 years or more.
