Punjab leave encashment mechanism

Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) has rejected the notification issued by the Government of Punjab regarding LPR leave encashment mechanism.

In a statement, President PU ASA Prof Dr Muhammad Azhar Naeem said that it will be the financial murder of PU employees. He appealed to the Chief Minister to immediately de-notify this and increase the salaries of all employees according to the Federal Govt budget.

Secretary PUASA Dr Amjad Abbas Magsi in a separate statement stated that the Punjab Government employees who are set to retire are going to suffer heavy financial losses in the form of leave encashment/pension and the payments will be made as per the initial rather than the running basic pay of that scale. He said that it is condemned that the Punjab University (PU) administration has instantly adopted the said notification without any deliberations and approval by the statutory bodies.

The protest of the employees for securing their legitimate rights is fully supported, he said adding that it is quite unfortunate that the university administration creates unnecessary hurdles in providing financial benefits to its employees and exploits the situation under the guise of bureaucracy, and does not hesitate in adopting the notifications which are meant for financial losses e.g the withdrawal of time scale promotions in the recent past.

Dr Amjad Magsi states that the university teachers/ employees are still deprived of an increase in house requisition amount which had to be implemented with effect from 2021. Despite having signed an agreement, the PU administration has not transferred such benefits to the teachers and staff.
