LAHORE – Punjab Higher Education Secretary Irfan Ali has said that process of transferring/posting academic staff will be completed in few days, strictly on the basis of merit.

He also rejected the notion that the process of new recruitment and transfers/posting in government colleges across the province had been delayed due to failure of the online system.

“Our online system is working properly and computerised data of all the colleges is available, there is no chance of violation of transfer policy,” Mr Irfan said.

Earlier, the Punjab Higher Education Department had introduced an online system for transfer/posting of teaching staff under the supervision of additional secretary Silwat Saeed to ensure transparency.
