Sindh Public Service Commission were not given posting orders 639 selected Lecturers 

Karachi: The Sindh High Court on Thursday restrained the provincial education department from fresh recruitment against 639 posts of lecturers and directed the department to submit details of the appointment of 91 lecturers who have been given posting orders.

An SHC division bench passed this order while hearing the petitions of 639 lecturers, who were selected by the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) for government colleges, but were not given posting orders.

The petitioners submitted through their counsel, Shua-un-Nabi and Zamir Ghumro, that the recruitment process was started in June 2005 with the publication of a SPSC advertisement inviting applications from eligible candidates for the post of lecturers. They submitted that the SPSC had declared 741 applicants as successful candidates in June 2005, of them 91 candidates had been given posting orders in compliance with an SHC order in Sept 2007. The rest of the successful candidates were given offer letters in May 2008 and they signified their acceptance of the offer immediately but were still awaiting posting, though the posts they had been selected for were lying vacant to the detriment of students.

They said the government was bound to accept the SPSC's recommendations in the absence of any justifiable reason and its own offer letters. Once having accepted the SPSC recommendations, it had no authority whatsoever to go back on its solemn commitment, they added.

The additional advocate-general along with the provincial secretary education appeared before the division bench comprising Justice Athar Saeed and Justice Syed Mahmood Alam Rizvi on Thursday and argued that the relevant matter was pending before the Supreme Court and it was to be determined whether the chief minister could withdraw the offer letters or whether a caretaker government could issue the posting orders.

However, the petitioners' counsel took the plea that the matter pending in the Supreme Court had no relevance with the present case.

They said that 91 of the SPSC-selected lecturers, who approached the court earlier, had already been posted in compliance with the court order while 11 had been given posting by the education department on its own.

The petitioners, who had been issued offer letters, were thus being discriminated against in violation of their vested right, they said, claiming that fresh hiring was being made on the still vacant posts.

The bench after hearing both sides adjourned the matter till March 12. Dawn
