WAH CANTT - Teachers and lecturers serving in FG schools and colleges under the directorate of federal government educational institutions (cantonment & garrison) have demanded increment in their pays and regularisation of their services.  

Talking to The Nation here on Tuesday, the teachers serving on daily wages in various schools of the area said that they had been waiting for regularisation of their service and age relaxation despite serving in the schools and colleges for more than 15 years. They said that the court in its order issued last year asked the concerned authorities to give permanent status to those teachers, besides regularisation, which was approved by the prime minister last year. They said that they were worried about their future as they were getting lump sum salary of Rs 5,000 per month, which was below the standard of an ordinary labourer and not in line with the existing government policy.

They teachers have appealed to Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif to look into the matter and solve their problems.
