LUD­HI­ANA: Pun­jab Tech­ni­cal Univer­sity (PTU) will di­rectly trans­fer the pay­ment amount into the ac­counts of lec­tur­ers who are check­ing exam pa­pers.

In Lud­hi­ana city, sev­eral PTU af­fil­i­ated col­leges were al­legedly not pro­vid­ing the pay­ment to the lec­tur­ers who were check­ing an­swer sheets. Lec­tur­ers get 12 for cor­rect­ing each an­swer book­let.

Balkar Singh, di­rec­tor of ex­am­i­na­tion, PTU, said, “Ear­lier, the process used to get de­layed as we had to first trans­fer the funds to TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS, PTU HAS DE­CIDED TO DI­RECTLY TRANS­FER THE FUNDS INTO THE LEC­TUR­ERS’ AC­COUNTS the re­spec­tive col­leges, then they would give it to the lec­tur­ers and send us the re­ceipts. To speed up the process we have de­cided to di­rectly trans­fer the funds into the lec­tur­ers’ ac­counts.” He, how­ever, added that no lec­turer had com­plained that he or she was not get­ting the pay­ment.

The re­sults of all the cour­ses will be an­nounced by next week, said Balkar Singh.

A lec­turer said: “I am teach­ing in a PTU af­fil­i­ated col­lege in the city. The col­lege au­thor­i­ties have not paid any of the lec­tur­ers who cor­rected an­swer sheets. The PTU’S decision is a good move as it will help lec­tur­ers get their pay­ment di­rectly in their ac­counts.”

An­other lec­turer teach­ing at a PTU af­fil­i­ated col­lege said, “In my col­lege, there are 20 lec­tur­ers and none of them have got the last se­mes­ter’s pay­ment from the col­lege au­thor­i­ties. So this is a good step by PTU.”
