Transfer of ministry of education to provinces
Islamabad: In much-anticipated move Education Minister Sardar Aseff
Ahmad Ali has sought support from Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani
to delay transfer of the Ministry of Education to the provinces under
18th Amendment, sources said here on Wednesday.
Sources said the
education minister in his recent meeting with the prime minister pointed
out that no necessary spadework has so far been done by the ministry
officials so they need time to work out modalities for transfer of
subjects to the provinces before June next year.
They claimed that
the education minister raised the point before the prime minister that
only secretary education was invited for briefing in which the concerned
authorities gave details about transfer of ministries to the provinces
and no one bothered to inform him about this unprecedented development.
said the ministry officials are yet to make some concepts clear in
their minds including role of provinces with regard to multi-lateral
foreign assistance that covers assistance from the banks and UN agencies
and bilateral foreign assistance that comprises assistance from any
country to Pakistan.
Sources said the Ministry of Education has to
take major decision whether or not to reduce its top hierarchy that
consists of minister, minister of state, secretary, additional secretary
(PMU), senior joint secretary (Admin Wing), JEA (Policy and Planning
Wing), JEA (Curriculum Wing), JEA (Projects Wing), JEA (Training Wing)
and director monitoring cell.
Currently, there are 115 sanctioned
posts from BS-16 to BS-22 and 336 sanctioned posts from BS-01 to BS-15
in the Administrative Wing and the ministry would also have to decide
how much reduction in sanctioned posts would be necessary in the future.
sources said the administrative control of many of the institutions
currently being run by the Federal Ministry of Education can be
transferred to provinces. These institutions include Urdu Dictionary
Board (Karachi), National College of Arts (Lahore), Private Education
Institutes Regulatory Authority (PEIRA), Academy of Educational Planning
and Management, National Institute of Science and Technical Education
(Islamabad), Inter-Board Committee of Chairman, Sindh Madrassatul Islam
(Karachi), Dawood College of Engineering and Technology (Karachi),
Pakistan National Commission for Unesco (Islamabad) and Centres of
Excellence, Area and Pakistan Study Centres.
They opined that the
devolution process would leave Ministry of Education with no other
option except to simply make policy and deal with foreign-funded
scholarships while half of the funds of Higher Education Commission
(HEC) would also be transferred to the provinces after transfer of
Ministry of Education.
The Ministry of Education may also transfer
powers to the provinces to interact and deal with Deeni Madrassas.
According to National Education Census 2005 there are 12,153 Deeni
Madrassas in the country in which 1,512,445 students are getting
religious education under 54,909 teachers.
Education Sheghan Sharif Malik talking to this scribe said that as such
no decision has been taken to transfer Ministry of Education to the
provinces and when they receive directives in this respect then they
would act accordingly.
"The Establishment Division has sought record
of employees working in the ministry and many other developments are
going on at the moment but no decision has so far been taken at any
level to transfer education ministry to the provinces," he said.
Sheghan Sharif Malik said the Ministry of Education is insisting to ensure
uniform curriculum across the country that would help promote patriotism
develop harmony among all the provinces. To a question, he said when
any one asks them to complete spadework for transfer of the ministry to
provinces they would do so in line with the rules and procedures. The news
