Punjab Government, Finance Department has issued the official notification on 10th March, 2021 in connection with Time Scale Personal Upgradation is Not Applicable Teaching Faculty of Universities 2021.
Adoption of Time Scale Personal Upgradation Notification 2021
It is brought to the notice of all concerned that the Government of Punjab after approval of the Competent Authority i.e. the Chief Minister has allowed the benefit of grant of Time Scale Personal Up-gradation to its employees. Finance Department has observed that Public Sector Universities in Punjab have two broad categories of employees’ i.e. teaching and non-teaching staff in Public Sector Universities.
The service structure and career progression prospects of non-teaching staff are almost similar to that of Government employees. However, a mechanism for career progression of the teaching staff of the Public Sector Universities is a special one as there is no concept of traditional promotion after completion of a certain period of time rather they have to compete for appointment through open competition on each tier.
The Time Scale Personal Up-gradation is envisaged in view of traditional promotion prospects of the regular employees. Furthermore, induction against all tiers of teaching posts in Public Sector Universities is carried out on open merit-based competitive process through advertisement; thus Time Scale Personal Up-gradation is not applicable to the teaching faculties of Public Sector Universities.
