A meeting of FAPUASA Islamabad Chapter was held on Tuesday under the leadership of Dr. Saqlain. Competent authority has been clearly informed by the teachers about the concerns regarding the education budget for the next financial year 2021-22.

At present, all national universities, especially federal universities, are suffering from a lack of funding, which is making it difficult for universities to pay salaries to teachers and staff.

The real disadvantage of budget shortfalls lies in teachers ‘salaries and students’ in the form of increase in fees. In addition, numerous educational projects of the Higher Education Commission and universities have been shut down and are continuing.

Therefore, the FAPUASA Islamabad Chapter calls on the government of the day to immediately increase the higher education budget significantly. At the same time, the FAPUASA Islamabad Chapter fully supports the long-standing demand of teachers across the country for immediate restoration.
