Govt of the Punjab School Education Department Punjab regularized more than one lac educators on the directions of worthy chief justice supreme court of Pakistan on 19-10-2009.Govt of the Punjab school education department considered 19-10-2009 as first day in the service so basic pays of all such educators were fixed at the initial stages of their respective scales on 19-10-2009 ; along with adhoc allowances SA 2005,SRA 2005 ,DA 2006 and AR 2009.District Education Administration issued letters of regularization in Aug 2010 in most of the districts and in some districts these were issued in May 2010.While fixing the pay of such educators District Account Offices made recoveries from the pay of such educators in lieu of all above said allowances from 19-10-2009.PEA Punjab condemns this cruel decision and filed writ petitions 26022,26930,4617,6560 for pay protection and service protection in different benches of worthy high court Lahore.HC referred all such cases to chief secretary punjab to decide the mattter with negotiation of PEA Punjab.Many sessions of dialogues were held on this matter.After all CS Punjab decided against PEA Punjab but favored in a matter that all such recoveries made between date of regularization and date of issuance of letter of regularization are illegal and are refundable to such educators.PEA Punjab has already rejected this letter and demanded full pay protection so filed a review petition in high court for reviewal of decision of the CS Punjab so HC Lahore referred the matter again to CS Punjab with the directions to decide the matter accordance with guidelines issued by FD Islamabad regarding pay protection of contract employees.Hopefully meeting will be arranged with CS punajb in March 2015 and all home work has been done by PEA Punjab in this regards.
