The Sindh government has decided to enhance primary school teachers’ standing by promoting them to higher grades after nine to fifteen years of service.


The provincial government has also decided to eliminate the requirement for primary school teachers to have a B.Ed degree to get a rise in their basic pay scale (BPS), allowing 15,000 primary school teachers to progress in the province.

As per details, the teachers who have completed their 15 years of service would be given a BPS-16 while those who have completed their nine-year service will be given a BPS-15.


In October this year, the Sindh cabinet approved the proposal of easing the recruitment policy for the teachers after only a fewer number of candidates were able to clear the test conducted by IBA Sukkur for over 40,000 vacancies.


The meeting was told that only 11,549 candidates passed the test for primary school teachers (PSTs) against the total seats of 32,510 in the province.
Similarly, 14,000 candidates appeared in the test for the junior elementary school teachers (JESTs) for the total seats of 14.039. Sadly only 1,385 candidates were declared successful.


The education department recommended decreasing the passing requirement for women from 55 percent to 50 percent, while the meeting called for lowering the passing criterion for exceptional candidates from 55 percent to 33 percent. It was suggested that the passing rate for minorities’ candidates be set at 50%.
Sindh’s cabinet has approved the proposals.
