Admissibility of MS / M.Phil Allowance MS Degree Holders KPK.
The Subject allowance was denied to the employees of Higher Education Department Holding MS Degree on the plea that MS was not equivalent to M.Phil. Consequently, the aggrieved employees filed writ petition No.244-P/2018 in the Peshawar High Court praying for the admissibility of the Subject allowance. In its judgment passed on 24-09-2019, the august court directed as Under:-
“Accordingly, this writ petition is disposed of in the terms that the case of the Petitioners is transmitted to the Secretary Higher Education respondent No.03 who shall place it before the Secretary Finance Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa / respondent No.3 for consideration strictly on the analogy and principal enunciated in the judgment (supra) rendered in WP No.2243-P/2017 and WP No.4328-P/2018, Respectively”
