Names of alleged plagiarists removed from HEC website
Lahore: The names of the Punjab University (PU) teachers who were forcibly retired for plagiarism, and were blacklisted by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) last year, have been removed from the HEC website's list of plagiarists, sources within the HEC told Daily Times on Monday.

The HEC blacklisted the names of several teachers of the PU on its official website, as it was believed that these teachers were guilty of plagiarism. These teachers included Mian Aftab Ahmed, Dr Fazli Aleem, Rashid Ahmed, Sohail Afzal Tahir, Alam Saeed and Maqsood Ahmed.

Letter: The names of the plagiarists were deleted after the HEC received a letter from a foreign university that claimed that the teachers were not plagiarists and their names should be removed from the website. The foreign university, which has published several research articles of these teachers in the past, pointed out that they (the teachers) were not plagiarists and that their reputation was at stake due to the action taken against them by the PU and HEC, the sources told Daily Times.

Restore jobs: PU Academic Staff Association (PUASA) President Dr Mumtaz Ahmad Salik said that the action of the HEC in removing their names from it's website proved that the teachers were not plagiarists, adding that PUASA, along with the teaching community, demanded that Governor Punjab Salmaan Taseer restore the jobs of these teachers. He also said that these teachers were among the best scientists of the country and were a valuable asset.

PU former chancellor and former governor Punjab, Khalid Maqbool, had forced these teachers to compulsory retirement as punishment for alleged plagiarism. He claimed to have taken this action after being recommended to do so by a highly qualified inquiry committee. In retaliation, the teachers boycotted the governor and protested against the decision by welcoming him with black flags when he visited the university. The teachers also blamed PU Vice Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran for supporting this action due to personal bias.

Already punished: However, HEC Executive Director Dr Sohail Naqvi said that after the teachers had been duly punished, there was no need to post their names on the official website. He added that the purpose of highlighting their names on the website had only been to strongly discourage plagiarism. A PU teacher, seeking anonymity, said that the teachers' community was pleased by the decision to remove the names of the alleged plagiarists from the official website. He added that after the plagiarism charges had been levied against the teachers, the academic environment of the varsity had been disturbed as the teachers who were once united had become divided into different groups.

FPSC may replace old marking system of CSS
Lahore: The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) said on Monday that they are likely to replace the old system of passing marks in essays and compositions by introducing a combined marking system for English papers in the Central Superior Services (CSS) examination.

According to sources, the FPSC had submitted proposals in this regard to Senate Chairman Mohammadmian Soomro, during his time as caretaker premier in the last caretaker setup.

According to statistics, the initial criteria to qualify for the CSS written exams was 25% of the total marks and was later increased to 33 % by General Zia ul Haq. The qualifying criterion was then made 50% during General (r) Pervez Musharraf's era.

Consists: The CSS examination has six compulsory papers of 600 marks and other optional papers of 600 marks.

A minimum of 40% is necessary in the compulsory subjects to pass the written examination. An overall of 50% is required in all papers to qualify.

Compulsory subjects in CSS examination are English (Essay and Composition), General Knowledge (GK), which includes Pakistan Affairs, Current Affairs and Everyday Sciences, which carry 100 marks each, and Islamic Studies, which carries 100 marks.

According to the FPSC, candidates have to secure 120 marks in the GK papers. If candidates obtain 30 marks in Pakistan Affairs, 20 marks in Current Affairs and 70 marks in Everyday Science, the candidate will be able to pass GK. While the individual pass marks in GK papers is 40%. The FPSC introduced an aggregate marking system to facilitate candidates.

The English papers carry 200 marks; 100 marks for Essays and 100 marks for Composition. According to the FPSC, candidates have to secure 40 marks in each of the English papers to pass. If any candidate gets 55 marks in Essay and 35 marks in Composition, then the candidate is not eligible to qualify the CSS written examination.

According to sources, the FPSC is likely to re-send its proposals to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to sanction the collective marking system. If approval is granted, this will be advertised, FPSC sources said. This would allow candidates to obtain aggregate marks of 80 in both English papers. Daily Times

PVMC barred from UVAS degree ads
Lahore: The Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock (MinFAL) has barred the Pakistan Veterinary Medical Council (PVMC) from publishing any advertisements in the press on the issue of BS degree programmes of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS), Lahore.

According to a statement, in a letter to the PVMC Secretary/Registrar, Animal Husbandry Commissioner (AHC) Dr RH Usmani asked the council not to publish any misleading press advertisements on this issue without getting prior approval of the MinFAL federal secretary.

The BS degree programs in Fisheries and Aquaculture, Dairy Technology and Poultry Science of the UVAS are non-veterinary degree courses and do not required recognition from the PVMC. These degree programmes were launched last year by the chancellor/ Punjab governor in the presence of officials of the Higher Education Commission. The statutory bodies of the university had approved all these programmes before their initiation and they were started on the demand of stakeholders in dairy, fisheries and poultry sectors.

On Secretary instructions, Dr M Afzal, Chief Executive Officer, Livestock and Dairy Development Board, Islamabad, Dr RH Usmani, Animal Husbandry Commissioner, Prof Dr Talat Naseer Pasha, Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences Business Management, UVAS, and Dr Alamdar Hussain Malik, Registrar/ Secretary, PVMC, deliberated on the issue in a meeting in Islamabad last week. The committee could not find any provision in the PVMC Act to give misleading advertisements in the press. When contacted, PVMC Secretary/Registrar Dr Alamdar Hussain Malik said the council promptly responded to the letter received from the AHC office with the stand that PVMC shall definitely respond to any unlawful action of any forum challenging the council's writ, jurisdiction and mandate given by the parliament.
