KESC to exempt 55pc exam centres from outages
Karachi: The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has decided to exempt 55 percent of the examination centres, holding the SSC Part 1&II Annual Examinations 2012, from loadshedding from 9:00 am to 12 till May 07.

The Sindh Education Department, on behalf of the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK), had sent a list of 249 schools across the city where power supply should not be interrupted during the examination hours. The KESC, however, agreed to exempt 55 percent or about 130 of 249 centers from loadshedding.

A KESC official, Shehzad Yousuf, said the centres for which the exception was sought were located in "high-loss" localities where electricity theft was high and bill recovery was low. He demanded of the provincial government and its allied educational departments to clear the electricity dues on time to avoid such instances in the future.

VCs not responsible for campus violence, PAC told
Karachi: In a meeting held at the Sindh Assembly building on Tuesday, the Sindh Assembly's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) debated a number of education-based issues.

Aside from discussing issues of campus violence and funding shortages, the meeting also touched upon financial irregularities that had been observed in a number of provincial education institutions. Meanwhile, a senior varsity official, while speaking about the persistent problem of violence on educational institutes, claimed that the maintenance of law and order on university campuses was the responsibility of the state, and not of the university's Vice Chancellor (VC).

The official contended that a university's VC is supposed to ensure an atmosphere that is conducive to academia and research, and that maintaining law and order was not the VC's responsibility.

"Law and order is the responsibility of the state, but, unfortunately, law enforcement agencies have not fulfilled this responsibility," said the official. "Thus," he claimed, "whenever an untoward incident occurs on campus, an explanation should be sought from heads of the law-enforcement agencies, and not the VC."

Referring to the recent murder of Prof. Bashir Chanar on the SU campus, which - coupled with the murder of a student - caused the closure of the university for 55 days; the official said that whenever a student was expelled on disciplinary grounds, the professors had to face a hostile atmosphere. He noted that in some cases, the residence of professors had attacked by gunmen.

VC Tando Jam Agriculture University Dr A.Q. Mughal supported the contention of the official by saying that "the life of every VC is at stake." He said he has expelled six students on disciplinary grounds, but that it was very difficult to handle such cases. Mughal complained that students who could not get admission in other universities preferred his agriculture university. He revealed that the families of around 2500 students had been adversely affected by the recent floods, and that a number of students had faced difficulties in resuming their studies as a result.

Vice Chancellor Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences Dr Naushad Sheikh proposed that, since education had been devolved to the provinces, the Sindh government should deal with the problems of universities by setting up a Sindh chapter of the Higher Education Commission (HEC), as had been done in Punjab.

PAC Chairman Jam Tamachi Unar also shared his concerns, and observed that these issues should be taken up before the Governor and the minister for education.

Meanwhile, during an audit of public-sector universities for the years 2006-07 and 2008-09, Director General Audit Sindh Ghulam Akbar Sohu regretted that almost every university had not followed the financial rules established by the government. He cited the case of NED University, in which the academic institution had made an excess payment of Rs5.812 million at 50pc, instead of the agreed amount of 35pc.

The VC of NED University, Dr. Abul Kalam, responded by saying that if a financial decision is approved by the VC, the university rules have 'force of law' and that if the PAC did not agree to his contention they could be taken to court.

This mild threat ostensibly irritated PAC member MPA Muhammad Moin Amir Pirzada, who contended that university rules were subordinate to the rules of the province and the Centre. "You can not make rules that over-ride the rules of the province," he argued. "If you do so, someone may take you to the court," Pirzada reminded VC NED politely.

The PAC also rejected arguments by NED officials that it was entitled to spend over Rs31m for printing copies of degrees without inviting tenders.

When NED's director finance contended that they were allowed to give a conveyance allowance of Rs0.865m to officers, the PAC head said that the university could not violate the rules by giving conveyance allowance to officers who live in government accommodation on university premises.

After refusing to accept NED's explanation for why its purchase committee had spent over Rs7m on purchase of various items without inviting open tenders, the PAC directed the NED to issue a show-cause notice to officials. The MPAs also asked the Assembly Secretariat to bring this fact to the notice of the governor and the education minister.

Regarding the unjustified payment of medical allowances, which amount to Rs3.442m from the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro, the university official said a lack of uniformity in allowances for the universities in Sindh was a big problem.

The VC of Tando Jam Agriculture University also noted that a Ph.D. student gets Rs5, 000 in Sindh but that recently, Punjab had increased its Ph.D. allowance to Rs10, 000, which had put his university under "pressure" to follow suit. He also revealed that Sindh's VCs had recently requested the Governor for an increase in allowances, but that the committee formed by the Governor in this regard had yet to take any action.

At end of the PAC proceedings, the deputy director Audit, Sindh said that there were a total 12 paras of the universities (12 of NED, four of Mehran and two of LUMHS), which were involved in over Rs22m of financial irregularities. "The universities were also supposed to recover over Rs10m, but they have not made any recovery or adjustments," he said.

'Universities not cooperating in auditing of funds'
Karachi: The PAC on Tuesday voiced their concern about four public sector universities of the province, which were not cooperating for an audit of their funds. "Karachi University, Sindh University, Shah Latif University and Quaid-e-Awam University have not provided their working papers and are not interested in conducting a scrutiny of their funds," said Jam Tamachi Unar, chief of the PAC. He directed the Assembly Secretariat to write a letter to the governor in this regard. The MPAs postponed meetings with the four universities for Wednesday (today) in protest.

Students demand university in Fata
Peshawar: Students from tribal areas and intelligentsia have urged the government to establish a separate university for Fata, increase quota for students in all professional colleges of the country and enhance their stipends.

Speaking at a function organised by the Fata Students Federation at Peshawar Press Club on Tuesday, Saeed Ahmed Safi, Ikramullah Jan Kukikhel, Taj Mahal Afridi and others said that due to military operations and clashes between the militant groups in certain tribal regions schools, colleges and other educational institutions had either been closed, destroyed or occupied by the security forces for the last many years which had deprived the tribal youth and children of getting education in their native towns.

Besides office-bearers of Fata Students Federation, tribal lawyers, academicians and representatives of political parties and civil society also addressed the function.They said that the so-called military operation in Khyber Agency and other parts of tribal belt had yielded no positive results except displacing thousands of tribesmen from their hometowns.

GCU students plant 2,000 saplings
Lahore: Government College University's Botany Department students and faculty members planted 2,000 saplings at the varsity's Old Anarkali and Kala Shah Kaku Campus as a part of tree plantation campaign on Tuesday.

The tree plantation campaign has been initiated by the Punjab Forestry Department across the province.

GCU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Muhammad Khaleeq-ur-Rahman and Punjab Director General Protocol Asjad Ghani Tahir inaugurated the plantation campaign by planting a sampling at GCU Bukhari Lawns.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof Khaleeq said the massive felling of trees in the past decades had endangered the biodiversity of the country. He said now mass plantation of trees was the best way to reduce pollution from the environment.

He suggested that such trees needed to be planted which could absorb pollution from the environment.

He also urged GCU Botany Department students to ensure the conservation of saplings which they were planting during the one-day drive.

According to GCU Botany Department's Chairperson Prof Dr Zaheer-ud-Din Khan, 400 students and teachers participated in the one-day tree plantation campaign. The news
