Professors of BPS 20 demand Transport Monetisation Allowance


The principals and professors working in BPS 20 and above in different educational institutions under Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) are denied transport monetisation facility, which is being enjoyed by other officials of the same grade in the other public departments.

Under the government’s monetisation policy, all officers in BPS 20 are granted “Transport Monetisation Allowance worth Rs 65,960 per month instead of monthly conveyance allowance.”

Federal Government College Teachers Association (FGCTA) President (Local unit H-8) Professor Mehmood Ali Khokher said, “The benefit of the transport monetisation facility should also be extended to the professors of BPS 20 as they are government officers too.”

The officials of public department are enjoying this facility while the counter parts principals or Professors (BPS-20) of federal government colleges of Cantonment and Garrisons under the control of federal government are enjoying the facility of monetisation.

FGCTA Spokesperson Professor Safina Insaf Shah said that as per present pace of promotion most of the college teachers retire in BPS 18 and BPS 19 and only a few are lucky enough to step in BPS 20.

They generally enjoy BPS 20 for few months and in many cases for a few days before they retire, she added.

She was of the view that the principals and professors have been promoted to BPS 20 by adopting the same criterion which was adopted to promote officers of other departments through Central Selection Board (CSB).

She demanded payment of monetisation to the professors without any further delay.

“Justice delayed is justice denied.”

Senior officials of Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) and FDE were not available for comments.
