The present study was conducted to investigate the relationship of perceived organizational politics and organizational citizenship behavior in college teachers. It was hypothesized that there is likely to be a relationship between the perceived organizational politics and organizational citizenship behavior in college teachers. In this study co relational research design was used. Convenient sampling technique was used for data collection. Sample size was N = 100 (50 Government college teachers and 50 private college teachers with equal distribution on the basis of gender) taken from Lahore, Sheikhupura and Farooqabad. Organizational Citizenship Behavior was measured by Organizational Citizenship Behavior Scale (OCBS; McKacmar, 1991), Perceived Organizational Politics Scale (POPS; Podaskoff, 1997) was used to measure Perceived Organizational Politics. The findings indicated that there was a significant negative co-relation between the two variables and significant difference of scores on OCB Scale. The result showed that there is no significant difference of OCB with age, number of children, monthly income and working experience of employees. However, POP showed the significant relationship with all of the mentioned demographic variables. Regression result reveled that POP does not predicts the OCB. The findings will be helpful in understanding the effects of organizational politics on citizenship behavior of the employers in any organization.
