KARACHI: Senior Provincial Minister for Education and Literacy
Pir Mazharul Haq announced that the Sindh government has decided to regularise
850 ad-hoc lecturers, provided that they pass the Sindh Public Service Commission
Haq said that official directives have already been issued in this regard. He
said that the former government recruited the ad-hoc lecturers but the Pakistan
People’s Party-led Sindh government has decided to regularise their jobs
on humanitarian grounds.
“Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah has issued the directives to the education
secretary to compile a list of 850 ad-hoc lecturers besides collecting the required
educational certificates,” said Haq. He added that the government had recognised
the demands of these ad-hoc lecturers that they should be allowed to appear in
the examination of SPSC in this regard.
He further said it was also decided that the SPSC will only conduct interviews
of these ad-hoc lecturers and they would not have to take any written exams. “The
Sindh government has also decided that in future, no one will be recruited in
government departments on an ad-hoc basis,” he added.
