The government yesterday restored timescales of teachers and employees and monthly pay order (MPO) of index-holders of private educational institutions which are entitled to get them.
Last year, the education ministry declared resuming timescale which was suspended for seven years. But, the ministry could not implement this announcement due to lack of fund, said ministry sources.
The government's stance on announcing the timescale and then snapping it sparked widespread resentment among teachers and employees.
Finally the ministry yesterday restored the timescale and MPOs to the private schools, colleges, madrasas and technical institutions, said a handout.
Teachers and employees of a private secondary school, college, madrasa and technical institution, which are getting MPO facilities, get timescale, a special scale, on completion of his eight years in teaching profession with fulfilling all professional eligibility.
According to the education ministry statistics, about 49,280 teachers and employees and 3,578 index-holding teachers are entitled to receive the MPO and timescale money.
