  • THE tenure track system (TTS) was introduced in 2002 by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) with the intention to attract and induct highly-qualified faculty members in universities to enhance the teaching and research environment.
  • The HEC gave confirmation in writing in October 2020 that the pay for TTS faculty would be raised, but nothing has happened even after that announcement.
  • The government wants to boost, among other things, the education sector, but this objective can only be achieved by uplifting the quality of education which is possible only through quality research and teaching.
