Govt short-lists names for 4 VCs

KARACHI, Nov 01, 2007: The Sindh Governor's Standing Search Committee short-listed candidates from 110 applications for the posts of four vice chancellors for the province's public sector universities in a meeting earlier in the week.

The Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association expressed concern that retired professors and army personnel would be appointed. "When the governor advertised for the posts of VCs last month, we raised our concerns with the HEC chairman," the association's Dr Inayatullah Shah said.

Shah added that the only vice chancellor working in accordance with regulations was the VC of Kairpur University and that VCs of the other nine public sector universities are retired but still hold crucial positions or do not match the required criteria for the job.

He said that services rules clearly state that a person must hold a Ph.D and must be in-service. "By appointing retired or people with less than a Ph.D. there is a violation of the law and candidates on the seniority list suffer a lot," he added.

Last month, the governor advertised for the posts of four vice chancellors of Sindh's public sector universities in all the national dailies and these advertisements were placed for the VCs of the University of Karachi (VC Dr Pirzada Qasim), Quaid-e-Awam University Nawabshah (VC Anwar Junejo), The Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam (VC Dr Bashir Sheikh) and the Dow University of Health Sciences (VC Dr Masood Hameed).

Several candidates rushed to apply for the posts. Most were either retired or ineligible according."A search committee received more than 30 applications on average from each university," a search committee member said on condition of anonymity. He added that majority of these candidates were former VCs and retired professors.

"In Balochistan University retired army personnel are appointed VCs and we fear that the same practice would be repeated in public sector universities of Sindh, as has been happening in the past in Sindh," Shah said, adding, if that were to happen again that his organization would consider taking action.
