Srinagar: J&K PSC lecturers association on Monday held state level meeting at Srinagar in which hundreds of lecturers participated and demanded Assured Career Promotion with immediate effect.

The Lecturers Association unanimously demanded running grade /ACP (time bound promotion) as assured by government. The speakers on the occasion termed the denial of this long pending demand as a grave injustice with them.

President of the Association in his speech said that the running grade /ACP is a constitutional right of every employee. “It is irony that only Lecturers working in School Education Department are deprived of this right” he further said.
It is pertinent to mention here that government has recently accorded this benefit to all other gazetted officers. Association made humble request to Chief Minister, Finance Minister cum Education Minister to look into the matter and fulfill their promise. President of the Association said that if this demand is not fulfilled PSC lecturers will be forced to take some strong action.
