ACADEMIC ARRANGEMENT LECTURERS’ GRIEVANCE
Srinagar, July 15: The Governor, N N Vohra, today called Higher Education Minister, Abdul Gani Malik over phone and discussed the issues and demands raised by academic arrangement lecturers with him.
According to an official communiqué, a deputation of All J&K College Contractual Teachers Association met Vohra and submitted a memorandum of their demands to him.
It said, the Governor later discussed the matter with Abdul Gani Malik. Malik, the communiqué said would be meeting the Governor for further discussion on his return to Srinagar.
The demands highlighted by the 7-member deputation, led by Association president Prince Shabir, related to the urgent formulation of a policy for regularization of the services of lecturers working on academic arrangements, who had put in 2-14 years of service and continued to receive poor remuneration besides insecurity of tenure.
On questioning the deputationists, the Governor found that the near 1700 contractual college teachers comprise about 75 cent of the total teaching cadre in the colleges, the statement said adding, he observed that this was not an issue of marginal importance to college education and, therefore, needed urgent resolution.
