case was presented in the meeting and members were briefed that contract
of ED is going to expire on September 14, 2012, on the other hand there
is a ban by the federal government on new recruitments, so contract of
ED HEC, Dr Sohail Naqvi should be extended for another four years.

it was decided that if ban by the government will be lifted.
Contract of ED can be reconsidered," he said.
"Members were also informed that Adviser (HRD), Prof Dr Riaz Hussain
Qureshi's contract is also going to expire at the end of the current
month, so it was decided that his contract should be extended for one
year. However contract will be renewed after every three months.

recruitments by the government," he said.
Later, it was decided that Pakistan Technology Council will comprise

Former Senator and member of the commission, Razina Alam Khan defended the extension of Dr Sohail Naqvi and said that
he had offers from number of organisations and he could earn much more
as compared to what he was getting from HEC.
"Dr Naqvi wants to serve the country and only that is why he has
decided to stay in HEC. As far as Prof Dr Riaz Hussain Qureshi was

LUMS freshmen urged to try diverse subjects
Lahore: Lahore University of Management Sciences
Vice-chancellor Dr Adil Najam has said the freshmen should try the
diversity of subjects being offered by the university at its three
Speaking to the newly admitted 1,007 students of Undergraduate Class
of 2016 at LUMS Orientation Week on Monday, Dr Najam advised students:
"Do everything; try out the entire buffet of knowledge".
He said LUMS was one of the few universities of Pakistan having
students from far-flung areas like Zhob, Gilgit, Dipalpur and Layyah. He
said almost 60 per cent of this class would be staying in hostels.
Complementing the academic excellence of the new batch, he said from
the O-Level stream, 95 per cent students had scored 6 As and from the
Matriculation stream, the average score of students was 91.5 per cent.
He said the quality of the incoming class could be gauged from the fact
that this year the yield rate of students to LUMS was 73 per cent – one
of the highest in recent years.
Dr Najam also stressed that besides scoring high in academics,
students should also become good humans. "From now onwards, LUMS will
define you and you will define LUMS so be the torch bearers of good
values and ethics," he added.
LUMS Rector Abdul Razak Dawood urged the students to add maximum
value to the four years at LUMS. He said Pakistan had no dearth of smart
and talented people and the only need was right "Neeyat" (intention).
Pro-Chancellor Syed Babar Ali said a part of the financial aid
dispersed this year had been given by LUMS Alumni. "As you will also
become Alumni one day, start saving today to support an intelligent
student who can't afford to come to LUMS," he said.
The welcome session was followed by a tour of the campus for the new
student body and their parents. A 'Department Fair' has also been
organised, where numerous stalls and exhibits were put up by various
academic and administrative departments and students societies at the
