Evening classes at CMC delayed
Larkana: Evening classes for first year MBBS at the Chandka
Medical College (CMC) have been delayed because the admission cell of
the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Medical University (SBBMU) has yet to issue
offer letters to successful candidates.
The merit list was issued on June 18 by the SBBMU that had said that evening classes would begin on July 1.
"The process was delayed due to a strike by CMC's lower staff union,"
said SBBMU director admissions and spokesman Dr Abdul Waheed Memon.
"However, hopefully offer letters to qualifying candidates would be
dispatched on July 8. After that candidates would be given a week's time
for follow-up procedures and then classes would begin."
When asked whether the meeting on Friday of vice chancellors and
principals of medical universities in Karachi had discussed the matter
of evening classes at the CMC, Dr Memon replied in the negative. The
Pakistan Medical and Dental Association (PMDC) had raised serious
objections to establishing an evening medical university.
Dr Memon said that the management waited from the PMDC to queries
sent by SBBMU registrar Dr Ammanullah Jokhio and CMC principal Prof
Asadullah Mahar but when no response was received the VC gave a go-ahead
for proceeding with the admission process and classes. Dawn

The government colleges had set different dates for display of merit
lists from July 6 to 10. According to officials of different government
colleges, the dates for display merit lists have already been

colleges according to the already given schedule.

no condition of submission of domicile certificate. In one of the

certificates, which had created several problems and complications for
The petitioner had stated that in past the domicile form was
available for Rs10 from any stationary shop and it used to be prepared
through a simple process involving a union council nazim concerned and
the district officer revenue. The advocate stated that now the
government had changed the mechanism and one has also to visit the
office of deputy commissioner to get a domicile form for Rs30. He stated
that the government had now included several revenue officials in the
process from whom attestation was mandatory, which had made the getting
of domicile for students a complicated and time-consuming process. Dawn
