New uniform policy for admissions to medical colleges

Now entrance test for all
Lahore, Aug 29, 2008: Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said the Punjab government will adopt a uniform policy for admissions to medical colleges in the public as well as private sectors, and the students will also have to appear in entry test for enrollment to private institutes, says a handout.

Presiding over a meeting at the Chief Minister's Secretariat, he said only the students passing entry tests would be eligible for admission to public and private medical colleges set up in accordance with the existing rules and regulations and having required standard.

The chief minister said action would be taken against the institutions showing poor performance. He also constituted a committee to look into the affairs of private medical colleges and submit its recommendations to him in this regard.

He hoped recruitment of doctors on regular basis as well as regularisation of those working on contract would help improve the health sector. The doctors recruited on contract basis would, however, be regularised after scrutiny, he added.

The meeting reviewed in detail the doctors' service structure, matters pertaining to private medical colleges and overall development of the health sector.

The chief minister said the government had adopted a comprehensive policy for the provision of health facilities to the common man and special emphasis was being laid on extending health services in far-flung areas.

He said the government would encourage private medical colleges, however, these institutions would have to observe the rules and regulations and ensure quality education.

He said the self-finance scheme had been abolished in medical colleges for upholding merit and to protect the rights of deserving students.

Expressing his concern over the state of health and education in the province, he said governments' efforts could not prove fruitful unless doctors and paramedical staff performed their duty with commitment and dedication. Dawn

Sikh students demand minority seats at GCU
Lahore: The only two Sikhs students who applied for admission to the Government College University (GCU) have been rejected because of a lack of minority seats at the institution, the students said on Thursday.

The students Vijendar Singh and Joginder Singh said the GCU should reserve minority seats at the university, as it had reserved seats for sportsmen, children of teachers, etc. Vijendar said his score (723) in matric (class 10) was good and his chances for admission at the GCU would have been brighter if there had been minority seats at the institution.

GCU Registrar Professor Faisal Khurshid said the admission applications of the Sikh students had been rejected because they had not met the merit requirements of the institution. He said the university followed government rules and enrolled students strictly on merit. He said that if there had been reserved seats for minorities, and the Sikh students had qualified, the university would have accommodated the Sikh students.

Demands: Guru Nanak Gee Mission President Dr Mimpal Singh said, "Sikhs wish that their children be called Ravians." He said most Sikhs did not have the resources to compete with the majority. He added that he had been asking the government for reserve seats for minorities at educational institutions for many years. Dr Mimpal added that major minorities in Pakistan had representation in the provincial and national assemblies but the Sikhs had been ignored in that respect. He urged the government to pay attention to the problems of the Sikh community. Daily Times
