440 teachers restored in Dera Ismail Khan

 
January 28, 2012

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: The Services Tribunal in Peshawar Friday restored 440 qualified schoolteachers out of the total 1,613 following the recommendation of a five-member committee regarding scrutiny of the teachers’ qualifications in Dera Ismail Khan.
Sources said the teachers in question were sacked after the objections of the Committee on Education of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly as lawmakers from DI Khan Israrullah Khan Ghandapur and Murid Kazim raised the issue on the assembly floor.
They said the appointment of teachers during the previous government of the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal were made in violation of rules and regulations as the applicants lacking required qualifications were inducted.
On the recommendation of the Education Committee, 1,613 teachers were sacked by the Education Department and the affected teachers filed a case in the Services Tribunal for their restoration.
The Services Tribunal constituted a five-member committee headed by Secretary Elementary Education Mushtaq Jadoon to probe the sacked teachers’ eligibility.
The committee found 440, including 131 women teachers, qualified for the job of teaching while the rest proved ineligible and were dismissed by the Services Tribunal also, the sources said.
