Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Has Issued New Directives That Will Bar Teachers From Changing Pay Points.
Following the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) new directives on change of pay points, many teachers are going to be affected for they will not manage to change their points unless they meet several conditions.
Some teachers’ sacco demand that teachers who want to process loans should look for a minimum of four guarantors, who should also be the members of the same sacco, and their salaries pass through the FOSA (Front Office Service Activity) account.However, it has been revealed that some teachers after qualifying for the loan, they end up changing their pay points, leaving their guarantors with no option but to repay for the remaining amount to the sacco.
The above alleged details were uniquely discovered by the commission and after the Commission’s thorough investigation it has been discovered that no wonder applications for the change of pay points among teachers has drastically increased in the past five years.
Following such incidents, TSC has directed that change of paypoints for teachers is only possible if the applicant accompanies the forms for change by a newly introduced clearance form that is a certified by the previous paypoint managers.
The clearance form from the previous pay point wi be used to ascertain that the teacher under review has no unsecured loan whatsoever, but has just decided to move away by good will.
Teachers Service Commission CEO, Dr Nancy Macharia strongly condemned the situations where teachers are paying loans that they didn’t own in the first place just because the owner of the loan has defaulted.
In response to several complaints tabled by teachers at several conferences, Dr Macharia suggested that if the teachers want to change their salaries between pay points, then they should do it sparingly, with evidence of not having any hanging loan that could affect their guarantors.
