Principals and vice principals of 98 honors-masters-level government colleges are going to be upgraded to third grade.
These principals recruited through BCS general education cadre are now under fourth grade of the national pay scale.
The ministry of education has sought a proposal from the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE), sources in the DSHE said on Monday.
The authorities concerned said the proposal had been sent to the ministry of finance after collecting information through the DSHE.
On October 6, the ministry asked the DSHE to send the proposal again, including the draft recruitment rules.
An order was sent to the director general of the department on October 18 in this regard.
In March, 2019, the education ministry proposed to upgrade the posts of 272 principals and 157 vice principals of government colleges, who are in professor post (fourth grade), to the third grade.
At the same time, the ministry also proposed to upgrade 15 posts--six directors' posts of the DSHE and principals of nine selected colleges-- to the second grade.
