More details of 8,000 ghost schools emerge
Islamabad: Billions from the public kitty have been sunk in the alleged 8,000 ghost
schools of the Basic Education Community Schools (BECS) but this
controversial project gave a phenomenal but illegal boost to the careers
of blue-eyed employees.
As against the objective of
the project to educate the children of the poor, the authorities have
been giving illegal promotions to contractual appointees in sheer
violation of the law and established practices. The promoted persons
include those who had transferred Rs790 million into a private account
in violation of the law of the land.
A former federal
minister and some past key officials of the BECS and National Education
Foundation are also alleged to have their role in these illegal
appointments but no one has moved against any of them.
inquiry held into this aspect of the controversial project recommended
the sacking of at least eight of these blue-eyed contractual appointees
but none has been thrown out of the project merely because the board of
directors of the National Education Foundation (NEF) has no time to
decide this matter.
Despite their differences NEF Managing
Director Nasir Hayat and Planning Commission Member Mohayyuddin Marri,
who had held the inquiry into the matter and had claimed that 8,000 of
the BECS schools are ghost, agree that the promotion given to favourites
were illegal and unprecedented but still the illegal appointees are
allowed to further damage the already ruined project.
his inquiry Marri had clearly stated that there are no rules for
promoting project employees working under temporary contracts but in
this case several officials were given even two-step promotion. No one
has yet been held accountable against this misuse of official authority.
to the inquiry report, an audit report had raised serious objections to
certain illegal promotions following which the promoted officers were
demoted. "This is an example of blatant violation of rules and warrants
major penalties to those who committed very serious misconduct," the
inquiry report said.
According to the report, the
contractual appointees given illegal promotion include Sadia Atta
Ghumman, director administration, promoted from BS-17 to 19 in one go;
Abdul Hanan, director finance, promoted from BS-17 to 19 in one go
(Hanan was co-signatory with ex-director project in transferred GoP's
Rs790 million in a private account); Nabila Riaz Naro, director
planning, promoted from BS-17 to 19; Kashif Sohail, deputy director
administration, promoted from BS-17 to 18; Imran ul Haq, deputy director
administration, promoted from BS-17 to 18; Samra Saman Kiyani and
Naureen Razzaq promoted to BS-18 from BS-17; and Nadia Khan promoted to
BS-17 from BS-16.
The inquiry report recommended the
reversion to original scales of all these employees besides the
termination of their contract and recovery of pay and allowance.
According to Marri, a total of 44 officials were given illegal promotion
but most of them were promoted in lower grades.
addition to this, the eight senior employees recommended for demotion
and sacking, the inquiry report said that all those who fall in the same
category of illegal promotion would also stand demoted and terminated.
"Recoveries will also bbe made from illegal promotee obtained in the
shape of salaries, allowances, TA/DA, illegal pay protection, house
hiring and unauthorised medical claims, etc."
committee also recommended that in view of gross irregularities pointed
out by special audit conducted by finance audit 2011, services of
director Punjab be terminated and an advertisement be floated in
newspapers for recruitment of an eligible and competent individual for
the said position without failing, as his post was neither advertised
nor was a selection committee appointed to interview for a very
important position of BS-20.
The committee also
recommended that several inquiries conducted against the irregularities
of director Balochistan make him liable to termination and an
advertisement be floated in newspapers for recruitment of an eligible
and competent individual for the said position. "Presently BECS is very
notorious in Balochistan and the shady role of the present director
warrants immediate action," the report read.
committee also recommends that no officer/officials be placed at one
station for more than three years and all those who have completed three
years at a particular position be transferred to another station with
immediate effect," it added.
The report also recommended
the reinstatement of 18 employees who were sacked by the former project
director. About the former director of the project, the report added:
"The ex-director project's group manoeuvred illegal promotion orders and
forged office record, extracted letters/documents, which favoured the
grieved employees and pointed out the misconduct of illegal promotees.
These are criminal acts and a case may be referred to investigating
The BECS, which is federal government project
having worth over Rs8 billion, is scandalous and allegedly feeds more
than 8,000 ghost schools in all provinces and regions including the
Owing to corruption and mismanagement,
according to Planning Commission Member Mohayyuddin Marri, the funding
of the BECS project has been stopped in the current fiscal year as the
Planning Commission wants its revision to get it on the right track.NEF
Managing Director Nasir Hayat, who has been given this assignment in
January this year is, however, of the view that the figure of ghost
schools is around 800.

Arid university Tussle over new appointments
Islamabad: Member selection board of Pir Mehr Ali
Shah University of Arid Agriculture Rawalpindi Dr Riaz Hussain Qureshi
has declared the process of appointment of 129 faculty members and
employees in the university against the rules and refused to become a
part of it.
On the other hand Academic Staff Association (ASA) of the university
has also announced that they will oppose the process of appointment on
According to sources, Dr Qureshi, who is also adviser at Higher
Education Commission (HEC), on Wednesday wrote letters to relevant
departments in which he stated that criteria which has been adopted by
the management of the university was against the rules and he does not
want to be part of any appointment in violation of rules as he has a
The reason why ASA is criticising the appointment of new staff
members stems from the fear that merit was not considered during
completion of relevant process.
President ASA Prof Nadeem Akhtar Abbasi, said
management of the university has violated rules due to which ASA has
been trying to save the system.
"HEC has ranked us at 7th position which shows the university has
been doing well but now it seems that the new management of the
university will destroy the system because all the procedures have been
ignored for the appointment of 129 new staff members," he said.
Prof Fayyazul Hassan Sahi, general secretary of ASA, said Dr Mohammad
Irfanul Haq was given charge as the acting vice-chancellor (VC) of the
university on May 27, 2012. He will retire on July 29, as he will reach
his date of superannuation.
"Although acting VC does not have powers of full VC, still Dr Haq
started transferring and promoting officers. Then he decided to recruit
new officers/staff and advertised 129 posts in basic pay scale (BPS) 1
to 21," he said.
"According to rules of the commission regarding recruitment process,
after advertisement, three to four weeks times should be given to
candidates and then those candidates who were not being called for
interviews should be informed in writing. The reason of refusal should
also be mentioned," he said.
"Recent advertisements by the management gave only 12 days for the
closing because the new VC wants to appoint all 129 staff members before
his departure. Besides, some posts do not exist in the budget
allocation. So appointment on those posts will create another issue," he
"Already 186 faculty members are working in the university but still
the management wants to appoint more. On the other hand universities all
over the country have been facing financial problems. So the act of the
management is not understandable," he said.
According to documents available with Dawn, four members of the
university syndicate i.e. Dr Abdul Rauf, Dr Ikram Ali Malik, Dr Audil
Rashid and Safdar Ali also showed reservations on the appointment
process and they informed the relevant departments in writing.
Member Selection Board of the University and HEC adviser Dr Riaz
Hussain Qureshi confirmed that he has sent letters to the HEC chairman,
university management and other relevant departments that he will not
become part of the appointment process.
"I have written that the process adopted for the appointment was
unjustified and appointments should be postponed and after that, due
procedure should be adopted for the appointments," he said.
The university's VC, Dr Mohammad Irfanul Haq, said it was correct that he was appointed as acting VC on May 27 and
will reach date of superannuation on July 29 but it has nothing to do
with the appointments. There are members in selection board and they
will appoint the employees on merit.
"I have been informed that member selection board Dr Riaz Qureshi has
sent letters in which he has stated that appointments should be
postponed but he did not bother to discuss the issue with me which has
disappointed me," he said.
"I have been trying to resolve the issues of the university by giving
due respect to those who are seniors and were ignored during the last
10 years. There are 16 members of ASA and most of them think that I am
doing right but president of ASA has been trying to take advantage of
his seat," he said. Dawn
