Retired teachers file representations over time scale denial
ISLAMABAD: Many retired principals and teachers of educational institutions run by the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) have filed representations/appeals before the Secretary, Ministry of Education and Professional Training against the denial of grant of Time Scale to them.
According to an official source, these teachers and principals are accusing the Ministry of Education and Professional Training of forfeiting their benefits unlawfully.
Retired teachers are of the view that they feel mistreated by the decision of not granting time scale from the actual date of its implementation resulting in sheer loss of legitimate and lawful financial benefits.
Majority of the retired teachers who filed representations have served the department for over 35 years.
It is learnt that the cases of retirees were put forward in the meeting of the Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) initially held on February 6, 2020. Certain queries were raised during the meeting and it was decided that the time scale cases will be decided in the next meeting. – APP
