UAF moves to correct the wrong
Faisalabad: The University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) has finally
shown the door to a student, the son of a dean, who got admission on the basis
of a bogus intermediate certificate.
The notification regarding Umer
Zafar's admission cancellation was issued on Monday.
Earlier, in a case
of gross discrimination, the UAF had expelled a student with bogus certificate
but allowed the son of the dean to continue studies despite being declared
guilty of the same offence.
Faculty of Agriculture Engineering and
Technology dean Dr Abdul Rehman Tahir has given Umer, the son of faculty of
Agriculture Economics and Rural Sociology dean Dr Iqbal Zafar, a month on his
own to prove his innocence. However, after the intervention of vice-chancellor
Dr Iqrar Ahmed, the dean withdrew his offer. The VC had directed the dean to
decide the issue within a week, but the officer did otherwise.
university had enrolled 959 students in different disciplines of BSc in 2007 and
sent copies of all students' certificates to the Faisalabad Board of
Intermediate and Secondary Education for verification on Oct 11, 2008.
The board after a painstaking process declared two certificates of Umar
Zafar and Waseem Abbas as bogus. The board clearly mentioned that the
certificates were not issued by it, requesting the university to take
departmental/legal action besides getting cases registered with the police
against the students. The UAF, however, did kick Agriculture faculty student
Waseem Abbas out but retained the admission of Umer.
notification on Monday, the dean, Faculty of Agriculture Engineering, said the
intermediate certificate produced by Umer at the time of admission to BSc had
been declared as bogus by the education board. The notification reads that he
(dean) being competent authority had served written notices on the student,
asking him to defend himself but he failed. The student rather requested him
through written statement on June 29 that his admission as per university rules
be cancelled. The notification said hence the admission has been cancelled.
The notification, it seems, has been issued in a hurry as the roll
number of Umer is 058471 instead of 48972, as mentioned in the notification. The
dean also did not mention, in his order, whether the university would get
register a case against the student for cheating the UAF. Dawn

High Court halts PTC teachers' promotion process
Lahore: Justice Hafiz Tariq Nasim of the Lahore High Court has stopped the
process of promotion among PTC teachers as SST across the province and sent the
matter to LHC's Chief Justice for the formation of a larger bench.
judge passed this order on a set of petitions filed by PTC teachers from
different districts. The PTC teachers were of the view that they had been
serving in the department for decades and were eligible for promotion through
service quota for SST grade.
They said lists were prepared for
appointments as SST out of service quota while some teachers moved to LHC where
deputy secretary (education) and deputy secretary (admin) undertook that the
petitioners were eligible and would be promoted in two months time.
department, however, materialise their undertaking and the teachers again moved
a contempt petition in Lahore High Court. This time secretary (education) told
the court that rules for Punjab Education department (school education)
recruitment 1987 had been amended on December 12, 2008 and due to that, the
department was facing problems to implement Lahore High Court's order in its
letter and spirit.
The Court declined department's plea on March 2, 2009
and ruled that the court had passed order on December 12, 2008 prior to
amendments in the said rules; therefore, whosoever was eligible before December
24 should be promoted.
The petitioners said pursuant to Lahore High
Court's order the department issued a circular directing all Executive District
Officers (education) for implementation of the said order within three months.
Subsequently, the department promoted number of teachers as SST but
eligible teachers were completely ignored. They also moved departmental
applications for holding meeting of Departmental Promotion Committee but their
grievance was not addressed.
After hearing petitioner's arguments,
Justice Hafiz Tariq Nasim stayed the complete process of promotions and referred
the case to the chief justice as petitioners pointed out that number of writ
petitions on the subject were pending before different judges of Lahore High
Court. The News
