Red tape delaying teachers’ posting

February 25, 2018

Islamabad: Even a month after the Federal Public Service Commission recommended their posting, the Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) hasn't posted 14 women lecturers (BPS-17) to the federal government colleges in Islamabad.

The FPSC had recommended 14 candidates for appointment to the post of lecturers (female) at the federal government colleges for women on Jan 24, 2018.

However, the process of their joining those posts has got stuck at the CADD, which oversees government schools and colleges in the Islamabad Capital Territory through the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE).

Among the successful candidates were Sadira Batool (English), Syed Jaisah Fatima (Psychology), Maria Batool (Sociology), Zubaida Afridi (Political Science), Mishal Farrukh Bokhari (Home Economics), Amna Ejaz (Physics), Sundas Zahra Kayfi (English), Anam Zafar (Pakistan Studies), Aafia Asghar (Health and Physical Education), Sidra Naeem (Education), Sumaira Samad (Physics), Zakiah Sarwar (Computer Science), Sajida Perveen (Urdu) and Uzma Ghafoor (History).

An insider insisted that the process to formally

appoint those candidates to colleges had suffered

delay at the CADD as the relevant officer had joined the Allama Iqbal Open University at the start of the current month.

A teacher in the know said not only were those awaiting appointment frustrated but the delay in their posting was adding to the misery of the students suffering from the acute shortage of teaching staff members at women colleges.

He said the ultimate victim of the red tape was the cause of education and therefore, the top CADD officials should step in for the immediate corrective measures.

A successful candidate urged the CADD and

FDE to ensure his and others' immediate posting to the colleges.

“It’s already very late. The current academic session in colleges will end next month and so, it will be of no use if we (successful candidates) join duty at the respective colleges thereafter,” he said.

When contacted, a senior CADD official concerned promised early action on the matter.
