SMIU vice chancellor promotes 17 teachers


The Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) Vice Chancellor Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh has promoted 17 teachers of SMIU Boys Model School and SMIU Girls Model School from Junior School Teacher, PTI, and Technical Drawing Instructor etc (BPS- 14 and BPS-15) to High School Teacher/Lady Teacher (HST- BPS-16).
In this respect, a letter was issued by the SMIU on Thursday (May 30, 2013) which stated that the upgraded teachers would get benefit from January 2013.
Among the upgraded teachers, 10 have regular service at SMIU Model Schools, while the remaining seven teachers are working on contract basis. Therefore, up gradation of the teachers working on contract basis shall stand up to their remaining period of contract of the job.
The teachers who were upgraded included, Ghulam Nabi Memon, Manzoor Ahmed, Abdul Sattar, Fahim Raza, Muhammad Yousuf Memon, Abdul Haleem Phulpoto, Muhammad Ishaque Phull, Ghulam Ali Ramejo, Raheela Shaikh, Asif Ilyas, Syeda Shaista Shahzad, Aisha Riaz, Ali Asghar Leghari, Naveed Ahmed Tunio, Munira and Shazia.
Last year, Dr Shaikh had also promoted 20 teachers of SMIU Model Schools to the higher grades on the basis of time scale in accordance with the policy of the Sindh government notified on June 7, 2010. Therefore, within a period of one and half year, after getting university status for SMIU in February 2012, thirty seven (37) teachers of SMIU’s Model Schools (for boys and girls) have been upgraded to the higher grades.
After promoting the teachers, Dr Shaikh said that he had always thought about legal benefits to be given to the teachers without any delay and discrimination, and, as he considered them pillars of academic activities at the institution, adding that he only demanded that they must devote themselves towards better and quality education of students.
He further said that he equally gave attention on quality education at university level as well as school level at SMIU, because he being a custodian of this historic institution, wanted the students who were enrolled here at the Alma Mater of Founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, must get modern and quality education which would ultimately benefit the nation.
