Appointment of 9,000 teachers, Complaint Redressal Committees formed in Balochistan
Commissioners of divisions to head CRCs in the province
The education department government of Balochistan has formed Complaint Redressal Committees (CRC) to address genuine complaints of candidates regarding the appointment of teachers from grade-9 to 15 and non-teaching staff appointments from grade 1-15 in education in the province.
The department through a testing service conducted tests and interviews for over 9,000 vacant posts of teachers in all 33 districts of Balochistan during 2019. Around 100,000 candidates appeared in tests and interviews across the province. Divisional commissioners will head the CRCs, a notification issued by the education department said.
However, divisional directors of education, principals of degree colleges (male and female) at divisional headquarters, and district education officers of the concerned district would be members fo the CRCs.
“Merit would be ensured in all appointments”, Ghulam Ali Baloch, the Secretary Secondary Education Balochistan told the daily Quetta Voice. Genuine complaints of the candidates would be addressed through these committees to uphold the banner of transparency and merit in appointments of teachers, Mr. Baloch mentioned.
The CRC is bound to dispose of the complaints within 60 days of the decision of the District Recruitment Committees (DRCs). The proceedings of the appointment would not be stopped at any stage, the notification obtained by the daily Quetta Voice concluded.
In the absence of the CRCs, the candidates would challenge the appointments in courts and services tribunals. However, the formation of CRCs will help the candidates to get their complaints addressed quickly.
