Rawalpindi: Punjab higher education department has started updating and verifying the existing seniority lists of college teachers to initiate the long-awaited process of promotions, it has been learnt.
An official seeking anonymity said that the department through respective divisional directors for colleges had sought the present strength of their teaching and non-teaching staff to upgrade the seniority lists that have not been renewed since long.
In the absence of these lists, the college teachers have been waiting for their promotions for as many as 25 years and serving in the same grade they were inducted at the time of appointment.
According to the official, the existing lists are flawed as names of many teachers remain there, despite the fact they opted out of the job or passed away during the service.
The department has regularly been updating the lists with including the new names, but never verified whether teachers existed or not making it difficult for the college teachers to get promotions.
When contacted, Director Colleges Rawalpindi division, Dr Muhammad Ashraf, confirmed that the department had initiated the process of updating and verifying the existing seniority lists of the teachers. Dawn
