Court to ascertain NTS exams authencity
Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court (IHC)
administration has initiated the process aimed at ascertaining the
authenticity and criteria of the exam the National Testing Service (NTS)
gives to candidates for recruitment in government sector organisations.
A senior IHC official on condition of anonymity said that the
IHC administration had initiated the process because they are receiving a
number of complaints on daily basis, in which the candidates say that
despite securing highest marks in the test, the NTS did not call them
He said the IHC administration in order to ensure transparency in the
recruitment of about 200 ministerial staff of the lower courts asked
the NTS for taking the exam of the candidates.
The IHC administration had also assigned the testing body for
conducting the exam for the appointment of judges of subordinate
judiciary after some lawyers expressed reservations over the appointment
process and challenged the shortlisting of the candidates for the slots
of additional sessions' judges and civil judges, he added.
He said the complaints the IHC administration had received so far
against the NTC exams revealed irregularities committed by its
Fiza Batool, a candidate who had applied for the post of
stenographer said that despite ignoring the candidates who secured
high percentage in the exam, the NTS officials also charged separate
fee from the same candidate who applied for the same post in district
and sessions division "east" and "west"."For example I paid Rs800 for
the posts of stenographer lying vacant at "east" and "west" sessions
divisions but NTS authorities did not take separate tests and finalised
their results for both sessions divisions on the basis of a single exam
despite charging double fee," she said.
According to a district court official, around 8,000 candidates had
applied for 200 posts of IHC subordinate judiciary and paid millions of
rupees to the NTS.
He said there were 32 posts of stenographers, seven senior clerks, 81
junior clerks, 50 process servers and 24 peons, five bailiffs and three
sweepers were lying vacant at sessions divisions "east" and "west",
adding that the NTS authorities even charged exam fee from the
candidates for the post of peon and sweepers and conducted the exam for
them as well.
He said that some candidates had already gone into the litigation and
the IHC judge not only admitted the petition for regular hearing but
also linked the finality of the appointments with the decision.
IHC Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui on July 27 heard the petitions of
some candidates who appeared in the NTS exam and despite securing high
percentage were not called for final interview and adjourned the matter
Bilal Khan, the counsel for the petitioners, told the court that the
petitioners were shocked when they saw 44 candidates were called for
interview on July 21, although 22 of them had secured less marks than
what the petitioners had obtained.
The petition said that despite securing 60 to 70 per cent marks a
large number of candidates were not called for the interview whereas in
one instance an applicant who secured only 7 per cent marks in the test
was issued interview letter.
According to the petition, the act of short-listing of the candidates
was illegal and based on favoritism and nepotism and was against the
Article 4 and 25 of the constitution which guaranteed the protection of
fundamental rights and ensures equality of
The petition requested the court to set aside the short-listing. It
also requested for directions to the NTS for providing a fair
opportunity to the petitioners for appearing in the interview for the
posts they had applied for.
Professor Haroonur Rasheed, chief operating officer NTS when
contacted said that the testing body is only responsible for conducting
fair and transparent exam and the induction in any government department
is the discretion of their respective
offices.It may be pertinent to mention that NTS reportedly conducted
exams of millions of students and job seekers and earned billions of
rupees. A female doctorate student in May this year also filed a
complaint against the NTS in the Lahore High Court (LHC) in which she
questioned the legal status of the testing body. The matter, however, is
still pending in the LHC for adjudication.

Govt college running on doles
Islamabad: Girls Degree College sector I-8/3 is the
only college of the Federal Capital, which is working under the umbrella
of Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) and is running through
donations and aid of private personalities.
Besides, there are just 26 teachers for 700 students due to which
teachers cannot give proper attention to students.
According to sources, the college was opened for political and bureaucratic scoring in August, 2009.
The then federal minister for education Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani inaugurated this institution and regarded it a milestone towards
promotion of education in the country.
However, this institution is no less than a mockery on the face of
FDE because without teaching staff and non-teaching staff/administrative
machinery like ground men, chowkidars and drivers, no academic work was
possible, even after the expiry of more than 3 years, sources said
The only motive of FDE administrators behind inauguration of this
institution in an extreme hurry was no more than personal projection and
befooling of higher ups.
The worst sufferers are the students and the principal who are
continuously facing the music in the shape of criticism from parents and
inability to perform their academic functions.
An officer of FDE requesting not to be identified, said no budget
allocation in different heads has been made in the name of this
institution to meet its running expenditures.
Even the utility bills are paid from the petty sum the institution receives as fee from a very small number of students.
Everywhere the prestigious principal of the college, Metlo Hamida
Qais, seems begging for donations and college staff for the college. The
discrimination with F.G. institutions should be stopped now, he
This correspondent was told that after its inauguration in 2009,
academic work started with 7 teachers (all borrowed on request from
other girls colleges) and 6 internees who were not trained enough to
take regular classes without guidance from seniors.
Similarly, now there is neither a library nor a librarian, which is the best symbolic representation of a body without brain.
Ali Imran, father of a student said that he was not satisfied at all
with the studies. "My daughter does not seem to have such intelligence
and mental quickness as students of other schools have."
A teacher of the college, said that at present, 26 teachers are
running the academic functions; 14 teachers on temporary duty from other
colleges, 2 teachers are on deputation from provinces and 10 teachers
from different schools.
There are complaints against school teachers' because it is difficult
for them to meet demands of intermediate and degree level students.
There is one bus provided to the college but without driver and
conductor, no female sweeper, no accountant and female accountant clerk,
no laboratory assistant and laboratory attendant.
The borrowed non-teaching staff from other colleges include, only one
chowkidar for this big building for 24 hours, one ground man, admin
officer, head clerk, a clerk, a gardener, an attendant.
According to one reliable source, it was learnt that one generous
elderly man, Haji Sheikh Jan, living in the neighbourhood to the college
sent his gardener for doing plantation work, outside the boundary wall.
Even levelling inside the campus has been done with his donation.
Nisar Enterprises have made a sick room for girls, and Muhammad Ali,
Director, Strongman Company has provided a stretcher and a wheel chair
for the sick room.
Another donor, Akhtar Khan has set a prayer-room for the girls.
Principal approached Pak Korea Trust, which also donated 20 computers
through Ministry of Minorities and late Minister Shahbaz Bhatti handed
over the computers in 2010.
IMCG, I-10/4, IMS, G-8 and Margalla College have donated some science
equipment for laboratories but the equipment was insufficient to
So no science subject is offered. About 700 students are on roll of
the college and only humanity subjects are being offered at intermediate
and degree levels because practical facilities are not available.
A teacher of the college requesting anonymity said that Punjab
University has refused to give affiliation to the college because the
college does not meet the minimum criteria of sanctioned post of
teachers, library, number of books, etc., due to which admission of
students of the college have been sent through F-7/2, G-10/4 and Humak
Professor Khalida Makhdum, Senior Vice President, Federal Government
College Teachers Association (FGCTA), said the slogans regarding
promotion of female education are raised from every nook and corner but
this is proof of the rulers and bureaucrats' indifference towards education.
Expressing deep concern on the plight of education in the country,
she said, if this is the condition of an educational institution in the
capital, what can be the condition of schools and colleges in the
hardest hit areas.
Professor Yasmeen Bokhari, Vice President, FGCTA, said that this
indifference for the cause of education on part of rulers and FDE has to
be replaced with dedication, sincerity and will power.
She demanded that before the new session starts after Eid, the
college should immediately assign posts of teaching and non-teaching
The routine of continuous borrowing of teaching staff to pass time
should be immediately stopped. It is against the interest as well as
dignity of an institution.
Spokesman of FGCTA, Prof Tahir Mahmood said that FDE and Ministry of
CAD should take notice of the condition of Degree College and assure
solution of its problems.Dawn
