These promoted Lecturers will be posted in different Govt. Sr. Secondary Schools of Chandigarh and after these promotions, all the posts of Lecturer Cadre under promotion quota will be filled up.
These promotion orders were pending for a long time due to various issues such as seniority, subject combination, reservation, and some legal issue also. Earlier, promotion orders for such a large number of Lecturers were issued in the year 2013. Now, with the filling up of the vacant post of Lecturers shortage of staff at Sr. Secondary level will be minimized.
