QUETTA: Education Secretary Balochistan, Saboor Kakar has said that Balochistan government has terminated more than 800 ghost teachers in the province during the current scrutiny who had been taking out salaries from the government for the last few years.
The government has also launched a campaign for the verification of appointment orders and documents of rest of the teachers working in the education department. This action is being taken because in the past lot of ghost teachers had made ties with different officers in the education department.
“We are also holding an inquiry against those officers who are responsible in giving salaries to these fake teachers”, said Secretary Education.
Kakar further said that we have removed their names from our lists rather than terminating them. Since they had never been appointed nor they had joined, that’s why we have simply removed their names, he added.
He also stated that salaries drawn by the ghost teachers will be recovered from the officers responsible for fake appointments.
