Javed Iftikhar appointed Controller of Examinations

Karachi, Oct 25: The Governor of Sindh, Dr Ishratul Ebad, has appointed Javed Iftikhar as the Controller of Examination Board of Secondary Education. The post had been lying vacant since May 2007, when Salim Khan was sacked, while the Deputy-Controller, Examinations, Bizatullah Khan, was holding the charge of Acting Controller, Examinations, since May 2, 2007.

Iftikhar was also Controller of Examinations seven years back but resigned owing to non-appointment of staff in the examination department, as differences emerged between the then Chairman of the Board, Aziz Ansari, and Controller Iftikhar.

In 2000, the then chairman stopped all overtime of the staff, with the resultant staff shortage which caused immense problems as class IX exams were to be held. With this shortage of staff, the Admit cards were not issued in time which created law and order situation in the board offices, as students who did not receive the cards thronged the Board office.

Under these circumstances, Javed Iftikhar, now holding charge of office, inspection and affiliation, refused to work amid these critical conditions and resigned. His appointment was made a day before the results of SSC Part 1 were to be announced.

It is also be recalled that Salim Khan was sacked at a time, when examinations of SSC Part I were being conducted. Khan was sacked due to the charges levelled against him of leaking examination paper of SSC Part I and establishing examination centres at declared black listed colleges. The News
