Highly qualified faculty members working under the Tenure Track System (TTS) in public sector universities have been disregarded in the annual budget’s salary increase, sparking criticism and discontent within the academic community, writes Ghulam Abbas for Pakistan Today.

The All Pakistan Tenure Track Faculty Association (APTTA), representing over 5,000 professors, associate professors, and assistant professors in government universities, expressed its disappointment in a statement released on Thursday 15 June.
