THE Sindh Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (Stevta) announced vacancies through advertisement on Feb 23 for teaching and non-teaching trades.

In response, 2,628 candidates applied. A test was conducted by the National Testing Service on April 29 in different cities. First, they did not disclose the result on the NTS website.

This can damage the creditability of the NTS and Stevta.

Then they called up candidates for interview without announcing the list of those who passed the test. After interview in June, the final result has never been announced by the Stevta or NTS as yet. When the Stevta and the NTS authorities are contacted, they do not response properly regarding the final merit list. Instead, they just tell that appointments have been made.

Violation of rules and regulation has been committed in the selection process for the above-mentioned posts, and merit has been violated by Stevta authorities because of nepotism and favouritism.

Relatives and friends of high-ups and officers of Stevta have been appointed rather than meritorious and deserving candidates.

I ask the authorities concerned whether Stevta is somebody’s personal property where jobs are sold.

I request the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take action against violation of merit in Sindh, and an inquiry be made into favouritism in appointments.

Yes the main big issue also that, There was lot of contract visiting teachers is teaching since last 5 to 7 years but they have disappointed your post by corruption and illegal appointments in grade bps-11 to 17 in Sindh Technical Education And Vocational Training Authority ( STEVTA). They are not be considered in new appointment bps 14 junior instructor, even their contracts have been expired after new job announcement bps 11 to 17 even they are already applied and qualified by NTS (NATIONAL TESTING SERVICE) and also appeared by previous NTS Test in interview. This is big lost of these teachers. Right now they are jobless even they have experience holder in STEVTA, also this is biggest lost of our students. Thanks Regards Tariq

It is obvious the jobs are being given to more important people's relatives or those who can pay a fee.
